Fan of the Month

Q. Firstly, how and when did you become a Doctor Who fan?

A. I met the Doctor in 2013 thanks to a Season 6 marathon just before the Season 7 premiere. I immediately fell for the Eleventh Doctor and the Ponds so I ran to the Internet (we don't have BBC in Argentina) and put my hands on the entire (new) seasons. I met Nine and Rose and loved them, then I met Ten and Donna and started shouting "Oi! Spaceman!" to people in the street. So I ran again to the Internet and get the Classics.

Q. 2014 will be an exciting year for Doctor Who with a full, interrupted series featuring Peter Capaldi as our brand new Doctor! What attributes do you think Peter will bring to his incarnation of the iconic role?
A. I think it will be a nice change to see a more mature Doctor after all the craziness of Eleven.

Q. And what do you think of his costume? Described as "sharp, smart and stylish", does our new Doctor dress to impress?
A. Absolutely! The jacket is almost cooler than bow ties.

Q. Last month we found out that actor Samuel Anderson will be joining Series 8 as a new recurring character called Danny Pink. Are you looking forward to welcoming a new addition to the TARDIS or do you think three's a crowd?
A. I love the crowds. It moves the attention off the "Girl in love with the Doctor" thing. I would like to see more alien companions.

Q. 2013 was a fantastic year for Doctor Who as fans around the world celebrated half a century of adventures in space and time. What special memories will you cherish from the show's momemtous 50th anniversary year?
A. The return of Bad Wolf. I loved her. It was the best part of Rose's character in Series 1.

Q. If you could own one prop from the series, what would it be and why?
A. The Sonic Screwdriver, of course! It can do anything, except wood, so technically they can't send you to build a cabinet.

Q. Would you say that there is anything in your life that has been directly affected by Doctor Who?
A. Yes, I used to feed my dog in the night and tell her "Goodnight Khaleesi, don't let the aliens take us". Now I know that's why the Doctor never came for me.

Q. What would you say is the BEST thing about being a Doctor Who fan? It's a toughie, we know!
A. The best thing is having adventures through time and space, and also we take care of our health with all that running!

Q. Anything else you'd like to say before you go? Any passing remarks? We've heard them all...
A. I'm a Time Lord who lost her fob watch. I've seen the continents collide and break again. I met all the species who lived in this planet, and saw them rise and be extinct in a blink of an eye. And altough I only have one heart, is bigger on the inside.
