February 2013: Jasmine

Q. Firstly, how and when did you get into Doctor Who?
A. Funnily enough, I got into at school about 4 years ago, out of all places. I'd heard of it before and it'd seemed pretty cool, so I was psyched when I heard that that was what we were studying for thinking studies (my teacher was British).

Q. Although we only had 6 new episodes of Doctor Who last year, 2012 had its fair share of drama for the Doctor. He faced the Asylum of the Daleks and Dinosaurs on a Spaceship, bid farewell to Amy and Rory in New York and met his brand new companion. What were your highlights of Series 7: Part 1?
A. Everything was a highlight! I suppose when Rory and Amy got back together was great. I cried, I really did. Also, when Amy sacrificed herself so that she could be with Rory. That was the best ending of an episode ever.

Q. At the end of the Christmas Special we were treated to a stunning new trailer for Series 7: Part 2, which begins on BBC One next month. Anything stand out from the preview?
A. Well, probably the new TARDIS. It's changed so much. I personally think it's a bit sinister for The Doctor, but the Gallifreyan writing up near the ceiling is great. Also, if I might add, the fact that soufflé girl isn't dead was a big shocker!

Q. 2013 has finally arrived which means Doctor Who officially turns 50 years old this year, and it's been confirmed that a 3D adventure will be screened on TV and in cinemas as part of the blockbuster festivities! Thoughts?
A. That sounds great! I'm currently celebrating the 50 years of Doctor Who with UKTV. They're doing this thing where they show the best adventures of all the eleven Doctor's every month on Sundays. It's amazing how much Doctor Who has changed.

Q. If you were in charge, what else would you be planning to commemorate the milestone?
A. Maybe a parade of dedicated to the last time lord of Gallifrey?

Q. Which Doctor Who character - past or present - would you say you relate to most?
A. Probably the Tenth Doctor. He's cheeky, sarcastic, he can flirt and not even know it. But behind those old, smiling eyes is a a deep pain that no one can relate to.

Q. If you could travel anywhere in time and space, where would you go and why?
A. Anywhere. If I could travel in time or space, I wouldn't care where I went. Just the thrill of exploring the unknown is good enough for me. .

Q. What would you say is the best thing about being a Whovian?
A. Seeing all those planets, aliens, monsters and thinking that maybe somewhere out there, it's all real. The thought that there is so much uncovered space out there that no one has explored and the feeling that it's all out there waiting for you.

Q. Finally, is there anything else you'd like to add before you go?
A. I love Doctor Who!
