I’m a lifer. I resisted calling myself a Whovian but I was the only person I knew besides my grandmother who even KNEW about Doctor Who until I was 18 years old – and I started watching at 6.5 with her.
But I’d see the occasional Whovian on TV and say to myself “yes, I’m better than them because I don’t need a scarf!”
The years between 1989-2004 was a long time. I was sure the show would never return but I never did the books or audio books or fanfiction stuff. I just liked the tv show.
Mostly for the TARDIS really – and I like the concept of the everchanging Doctor who is also the same person.
So, as long as they make the shows, I’ll watch it.
Reason I say it doesn’t matter is because there’s lot of things you don’t watch or I don’t watch. Doesn’t matter if I don’t watch knitting shows or you don’t watch Doctor Who.
I won’t watch Babylon 5. Not for any reason just not my thing.
