I also think it is "Whovian" as the term for a Doctor Who fan, I have heard it mentioned as well but also I am not sure if it is the official term or not for Doctor Who Fans.

The term "Whovian" was invented by American Doctor Who fans in the 1980s - UK fans never had a collective noun. I don't think one's required - liking the series is surely enough to display our astonishing intelligence and ravishing good looks?

Hope you had a good weekend - I knew you would appear in this thread at some point!

Apart from Whoonies, "Whovians" is definitely the term I would normally use.

I had this conversation with a workmate a couple of days ago... we agreed that "Whovian" sounded too cheesy... what's wrong with 'Who Fan'?

Smarty! I could kind of guess what that was, but had to run it through a translator to be sure!
