Fan of the Month

November 2012: Louise

Q. So, how did you become a Doctor Who fan?
A. Simply because I was curious as to what the show was about. I saw all the promotional pictures of Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper and I thought it looked strangely fascinating and mad. I haven't looked back since, nor would I want too!

Q. Series 7: Part 1 feels like it was over before it truly began. What were your highlights of the 5 blockbuster episodes? Favourite? Least favourite?
A. My favourites are all of them but I hold Asylum of the Daleks and The Angels Take Manhattan closer to my heart because you got to see a different chemistry between Amy and Rory. Also, the new companion was in the same episode as the current companions which was genius in itself. In The Angels Take Manhattan, the Weeping Angels actually made me want to weep with fear.

Q. Did the Ponds' exit live up to expectations? How will you remember them?
A. Doctor Who goes far beyond my expectations every time. I will remember the Ponds by watching every single episode they were ever in. I will also create my very own Pond dreams and I may even wear a ginger wig on all my future travels!

Q. Up next it's this year's magical Christmas Special, in which Jenna-Louise Coleman will join the TARDIS! What are your hopes for the new companion?
A. I hope the new companion will be different and unique. I also want her to challenge the Doctor by figuring out how to save the world and defeat the aliens before he's even had time to think of a plan. I think Jenna will fit right in and save the world a couple of times while she's at it!

Q. Which of the Doctor's companions - past or present - would you get on best with and why?
A. I honestly believe I would get on with all of them, but I think either Rose, Donna or Amy and Rory. They are all funny and brave and I think I would get on with anyone who has saved the world and is friends with an alien with a bonkers hair style! I think Amy may just have the upper hand because I absolutely love her hair and her Scottish accent. I think I would just be complementing her the whole time.

Q. What would you say is the best thing about being a Doctor Who fan?
A. The best thing about being a Whovian is that you don't just get to watch extraordinary drama, you also get to experience the Doctor Who universe in so many different ways. There are books, radio plays, toys and cool clothes so you get to stand out from people, which makes you unique. The Doctor said himself that the fans is what makes the show what it is. That's the best thing but everything else is pretty epic too.

Q. Doctor Who turns 50 next year! There's rumours aplenty about what's being planned to commemorate the landmark year, but what would you like to see?
A. I want to see the Doctor visit all his past companions and every hero from Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures to see where they all are now.

Q. If you had the opportunity to meet Steven Moffat, what is the one question you would ask him?
A. Can I play the next Doctor or companion?

Q. Finally, is there anything else you'd like to say before you go?
A. Doctor Who is one of the things that I am most proud to be passionate about. It is the most extraordinary show that ever lives and I will continue to travel with it for the rest of my life.
