Q. Happy New Year! So, how and when did you become a Doctor Who fan?
A. I had already heard of it when I was younger, because I've always been a big sci-fi fan anyway. But I started watching it when I had a really bad time and was finished with Buffy. I loved it from the beginning. It just made me smile and it was so British! I loved Rose because it was like I knew her and she was so cute! And then I watched Doomsday and I felt like it related to my own life, just in a sci-fi series with Daleks and such. I just loved it and couldn't stop watching it!

Q. 2014 looks set to be an exciting year for Doctor Who as we await the upcoming adventures of our brand new Doctor! Are you looking forward to seeing Peter Capaldi's take on role?
A. Yes I am! A first I thought it would be strange because Matt looks so young and Peter is a bit older, but I know I'm going to love him.

Q. Peter's abrupt arrival in the TARDIS meant we had to say a fond farewell to Matt Smith on Christmas Day. Did you think 'The Time of the Doctor' was a worthy conclusion to the Eleventh Doctor's story?
A. I am so sad because I haven't watched it yet, so I can't answer this question.

Q. Doctor Who celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2013 with the festivities culminating with 'The Day of the Doctor' on 23rd November. What did you think of the landmark special?
A. It was amazing! I watched it in the cinema and I just couldn't think clear. My two favourite Doctors plus Mr Ollivander and especialy Rose! It was too cool. I really liked John Hurt as the War Doctor because he's not as evil as the Doctor remembered. And what I really liked was how Steven Moffat used Rose - the thing looked inside the Doctor, his future and past, and chose the person he trusted the most. Even though he didn't know her then, it just showed that the Doctor still loves her. And the fact they included all the Doctors was pretty cool too! It helped to bridge the gap between the Time War and the Ninth Doctor.

Q. What other memories will you cherish from the 50th anniversary year? The great mood in the cinema.
A. The Sonic Screwdrivers that were raised when the lights went out, plus the humour and the new friends!

Q. What is your favourite item of Doctor Who merchandise that you own and why?
A. My Rose Tyler cosplay, probably. I just love Rose and I love "being" her. But my sonic screwdrivers are so important too, because I can annoy my "Doctor" (cosplayer) with that. I always act like he gave it to me in an other time!

Q. Would you say that there is anything in your life that has been directly affected by Doctor Who?
A. My hobbies and leisure have changed because of Doctor Who a whole lot! I even go outside more often now for conventions and I don't play the PlayStation as much anymore. So it has had good affects!

Q. What would you say is the BEST thing about being a Doctor Who fan? It's a toughie, we know!
A. Yes, it really is not easy to choose just one thing! But I would say the relationship between the Doctor and Rose. I loved it more than anything and I'll never be able to get over it. But, if I should point out something that is not in the series, I would say the amazing Whovians! I have met so many cool people and we have a lot of fun because we can cosplay together, which is just awesome.

Q. Is there anything else you'd like to say before you go? Any passing remarks? We've heard them all...
A. Guys, your website is amazing! Bye!
