The Doctor & I – a fan project that’s like no other!
We’ve all got a “The Doctor & I” story. It’s time to tell yours.
As you will all know 23rd November 2013 will mark 50 years of Doctor Who, as well as half a century of its accompanying fandom that continues to be a big part of all of our lives.
Although all of our journeys with the Doctor start at different times his ongoing adventures continue to unite millions of us all around the world as we discuss, debate and share in his voyage through through time and space.
As part of our 50th anniversary festivities, we want to how your Whovian journey began.
We’re inviting you to submit your own essays (but they’re not really essays – essays are NOT cool!) detailing your personal introduction to the Doctor Who fandom – how did it all begin for you? What initially got you hooked? How has your life been affected since? We are particularly looking for accounts that are special, moving and, mostly, unique to you.
Basically, we want to know what being a Whovian means to YOU – whether you’ve been following the Doctor since Day 1 or accidentally stumbled upon his recent adventures at 4 in the morning on Netflix, we want to hear from you, in essay/report/diary/story style.
And here comes the really cool bit: these Whovian stories will be collated into a special commemorative book which you’ll be able to buy later this year. This book will serve as a celebration of our fandom that has been 50 years in the making with stories from fans worldwide, young and old, as we come together to mark the show’s huge 50th birthday…
We’re very excited about this project and hope you all get involved to help us build up to the big day in style. We’ll bring you updates soon – keep up to date with the latest here.
