June 2009: Ashley

Q. How did you become a fan of Doctor Who?
A. I first heard of Doctor Who through my my nan - she always used to point to a phone box and say 'look a TARDIS!' Then when the program started again in 2005, I knew I had to watch it to see what she was on about! I've been hooked ever since.

Q. What did you think of Planet of the Dead?
A. At first, I really enjoyed it. However, after watching it a few times, I thought some parts of the episode could have been better. I thought the romance between the Doctor and Christina felt a little forced, and the prophecy at the end felt like all the others in Doctor Who - it kind of felt like they were paroding themselves.

Q. What's your favourite new series episode and why?
A. Hard question! I think I'm going to get around it by giving you two answers. I really love 'Doomsday', because of Rose (and it is really sad), but I also really love 'Turn Left' because of the drama and the implications of what could happen if the Doctor wasn't around.

Q. Are you looking forward to Series 3 of Torchwood?
A. YES! I think it looks really good. The way it has been filmed makes it look like a really long movie. When I saw the latest trailer I was like 'This looks amazing!' Cannot wait for Summer now!

Q. If you could meet any of the Doctor Who cast or crew, who would it be and why?
A. I think it would have to be David Tennant! For me, he is my Doctor! I watched Christopher Eccellston, but David Tennant really captured my imagination with his brilliant portrayal of the Doctor! It will be sad to see him go, but I am looking forward to the future and Matt Smith and Karen Gillan.

Q. Are you looking forward to the Doctor's appearance in Series 3 of The Sarah Jane Adventures?
A. I think it will be great! Seeing the Doctor alongside Sarah Jane, K-9 and the gang, I think it will be fun. I can't wait to see what they will be fighting.

Q. Anything else you'd like to add before you go?
A. I'd like to say thanks for making me Fan Of The Month.
