A while back in 2MTL #37, I questioned whether Doctor Who could ever grow beyond a cult phenomenon in the U.S. Now, the show's reception at SDCC was phenomenal, so that's a hopeful sign. (On the other hand, SDCC loved Serenity as well.) I promised at the end of #37 that I'd share my reasons for bucking the trend as an American fan. Here, just a little late thanks to this tiny little thing called Torchwood, is my 120-second response — and a request.
So why do you follow Doctor Who? Send me a link to an audio file with your one-sentence answer — "I follow Doctor Who because…" — at webmaster AT twominutetimelord DOT com and I'll edit my favorites together into a future 2MTL podcast! Agree with me, disagree with me, it's all good; different sorts of Doctor Who fans will blend together in this podcast as well as Colin Baker's coat!
