Fan of the Month
April 2011
April 2011: Murphy

Q. How and when did you become a fan of Doctor Who?
A. My mum has been a Doctor Who fan all he life. When I was a kid and she watched it, I would watch it. But I didn't become a true Doctor Who fan untill it started back up in 2005 with Christopher Eccleston. Then when David Tennant become the Doctor, I was hooked. My favourite line/s is whenever Matt Smith states something is cool. 'Bow ties are cool', 'It's a fez, I where a fez now, fez's are cool', 'I where a stetson now, stetson's are cool'.

Q. Obviously the big news this month is the start of Series 6! What do you think of the full length trailer? Is there anything in it that particularly intrigues you?
A. Series 6 looks amazing. I am busting myself that it isn't coming sooner. I am so excited to see what is the business with what happened in 'The Lodger'. It was such a cliffhanger. I am also heaps curious as to why the Doctor is locked up in chains. For some reason it feels like that is another Doctor from another time.

Q. We'll finally find out who River Song is in the new series, and Karen Gillan has recently revealed that her true identity is "unexpected". Have you got any of your own theories about who she might be?
A. I don't believe she is anyone we have met before. So she is a entirely new character. If she turns out to be the Doctor's wife I will kill someone.

Q. Throughout his travels, the Doctor has crossed paths with the likes of Charles Dickens, William Shakespeare and Vincent Van Gogh. If you had your own TARDIS, which famous historical figures would you travel back in time to meet and why?
A. I would go back and meet Vincent Van Gogh myself. He is my favourite artist and the most talented artist ever in history. I would love to see him in action and just to talk with him. Just imagine what his head was filled with.

Q. Which of the Doctor's companions (past or present) do you relate most to and why?
A. Rose Tyler for sure. I am her age now and I just feel I am in the exact place she was before she met the Doctor. Also her morals, feelings, emotions and actions I really connect with. I honestly feel like I am her and she is me.

Q. Will you be doing anything special to celebrate the Doctor's return? Having a series premiere party, or maybe a Doctor Who DVD marathon to help you prepare?
A. I am having a Doctor Who marathon week with my brother and watching all series 1 to 5. Will be doing this throughout the week as a build up to the premiere of series 6. Also will be buying a fez, jammy dodgers and using my sonic screwdriver for the premiere episode.

Q. What did you think of last month's Comic Relief mini-episodes, 'Space' and 'Time'?
A. Pretty funny. I was honestly confused about what the hell they were going on about each time they came through the door. Great short story for Doctor Who. Also I'm left thinking 'What was Amy going to ask?' Is it going to be relevant to Series 6?

Q. Would you say there's anything in your life that has been directly affected by Doctor Who?
A. I feel like I have opened my mind a lot more to the idea of other life forms and that were not alone in the universe. It has also made me want to be more adventurous myself and travel around the world. I even want to move to London.

Q. Anything else you'd like to say before you go?
A. I am heaps excited to see the return of James Corden as I loved him in his appearance of 'The Lodger' in Series 5. I want to purchase a full Matt Smith Doctor Who outfit, I need to buy a bow tie as soon as possible! Doctor Who is my life!
