In a perhaps ill-fated attempt, to bring some joy to our lives, please post anything here that really made you feel good about Dr Who and being a Whovian:

Watching it, talking about it, thinking about it, listening to it, dressing like it, reading about it, speaking like it.

And so on.

Nothing has really made me happy to be a Whovian as growing up I was semi bullied for liking it . A time I was overjoyed watching the show though was when Rose Tyler appeared at the end if Partners in Crime completely out of the blue for me (Rose IMO is the greatest Nu-Who companion).

I got my mum to watch "The Eleventh Hour" and she loved it, so now she's watching the other Matt Smith episodes.

She loved David Tennant but didn't like that he left so didn't bother watching Matt Smith in the role. She didn't boycott it or anything, just lost interest. I have rekindled that interest though as she's watching it again and i caught her putting River Song into Google lol.

I watched the Rings of Akhaten and Hide again today to watch the backstory of Clara again. I had forgotten how the TARDIS in Hide learned that Clara cared about the Doctor just as much as the TARDIS did. While Clara and TARDIS would still never like each other, they both knew they cared for the Doctor.

I watched 'partners in crime' with my 10 year old today( he watched it twice!) and realised just how perfect series 4 was. Donna will never be matched by any of these young companions. The Doctor needs a mate!

Nothing. And I'm not a 'Whovian'.

I enjoyed watching 'Talons of Weng Chiang' yesterday.

Ah, nuts to 'em. Bullys, whilst obviously being beneath contempt, usually tend to lack imagination. This programme doesn't deserve them.

Today I will be rewatching 'The God Complex' . Haven't seen it in ages.

Technically it was yesterday, but I re-watched The Eleventh Hour, which never fails to make me happy (though it feels a bit sad or at least nostalgic to watch it now).

Also watched the 50th anniversary trailer sveral times today (as I have every day since it was released), which also never fils to cheer me up.

And it hasn't really happened yet, but it should sometimes soon - my copy of the Fifth Doctor 50th Anniversary book Fear of the Dark as well as my copy of The Doctor: His Lives and Times will arrive in the mail and they will undoubtedly make me happy.

Plus I am planning to continue watching Tom Baker are of Who later today (currently approaching the end of season 14).

It was mainly yesterday, but I've dipped my toes into the Big Finish world and started listening to some of the Eighth Doctor stories.

I thought they were great and will be listening to more!

(Then I got slightly depressed that he only got to do the below par movie, but we'll ignore that part )

I've just sat and watched the last three episodes of 'The Web of Fear' with my four year old niece (except the start of part five, which we had to fast forward because the Great Intelligence possessing Jack Watling was a bit too scary) and now she's accompanied by an invisible robot yeti, who she controls with an old pen lid on a string.

Sorry to quote myself, but obviously *meant* they don't deserve this programme. Or does it work both ways? Coat...getting...

Yesterday, meeting the lovely Paul McGann and many other favourites at Dimensions.

This weekend, gorging on the Boxset of series 7.

And today, making a profit on the extra Doctor/Dalek Toys R Us twin packs that I bought and sold on eBay.

'"Watching" some of the old 6, 7 or 8 parters for the past three days ("Seeds of Doom", "Inferno", "The Invasion") while I recover from eye surgery as it took my mind off feeling grotty. Lovely long familiar stories means that I didn't have to get up so often to put in a new DVD. Contact lenses in for the first time today - might even be able to really watch an episode or two!

Finally giving in to itunes, watching Enemy and Web back to back and being relieved to find that actually, yes, they are rather good, and Troughton is sublime.

I will be watching The Tenth Planet tonight.

Mrs Chuff and I listened to The Smugglers soundtrack CD on a long drive over the weekend, and Mrs Chuff was so pleased that it ends with a cliffhanger into The Tenth Planet.

What a nice thread this is.

Just the fact that it is my favourite programme since 1965, and that it is still running now!
I've just had a Sunday afternoon 'fest' of watching some of the classic stories with a few tinnies and a beef sarnie! BLISS!

Please educate this American and tell me what a "few tinnies and a beef sarnie" is? I am pretty sure it is a meal but beyond that I don't have a clue.
