Never judge a Whovian by their shirt.

Published November 27, 2013 by Malia

Today I encountered someone I know very slightly.  I was pretty sure I had seen her at the theater last night, so I was asking her if I it had been indeed her I had seen.  She informed me that she was, and then asked me what I thought of the episode.  I told her how much I enjoyed it, and that overall the end was fantastic.  Now, I was referring to seeing the return of Four.  However, I don’t think she understood that.  She proceeded to tell me that she was an old Who fan from way back, unlike those us of us who are new.  When I tried to interject that I’m not new to Who, she blew me off, and took to talking to someone else.

Now, I know that I don’t look like a teenager anymore, but I also don’t look like I’m nearly 30.  Plus, I was wearing my adorable new Who shirt that features Ten leaning against the TARDIS which bears the words “Bad Wolf.”  These two things combined screamed “NEW TO WHO.”  So, nothing about me said that I am a long time fan, or  that I can’t remember a time when I didn’t know about Doctor Who

I know that there’s quite a bit of frustration among Whovians over those who star watching just because “Matt Smith is, like, so totally hot.”  However, it makes me sad that some people seem to assume this about their fellow Whovians, and they don’t take a minute to find out the truth.

  • Tom Baker indeed-took me back to when I first started watching it in the 70’s. At the time I never knew there were other Doctors-Tom Baker WAS the Doctor. I can still recall watching as a ten year old and Baker regenerated into Davidson, and exclaiming “Who is he?!!!”
    Think it was better back then when we didn’t have spoilers. Still, look forward to number twelve.

    • The 50th was the first time I really made an effort to avoid spoilers. It was really difficult, because everyone seemed to have spoilers. I’m looking forward to 12 as well.
