seeks guidance from me as to what classic Doctor Who she should watch. Also I am spurred into action by a post on the Dork Report commending Sarah Hadley for setting new standards in Doctor Who esoterica, and also commending my Ian Marter post from last weekend, “lest [Sarah’s site] be too broad for the true Who anorak”.

Anyway, I don’t feel my knowledge is as in-depth as some on my f-list (in particular, the likes of , who is surely the queen of Who in the city of my birth), so I’m just going to repeat links to places which I find useful as I explore the past of the show:

I’m not satisfied with my indexing of my own Doctor Who reviews at the moment, and will give some thought as to how to make them better organised and more accessible, though the livejournal tagging system does help.

One thought on “Am I a fanboy?

  1. On the contrary, it is you who have missed Nicholas’ point, which is that attempting to reconstruct someone’s intellectual life from a limited and arguably irrelevant set of evidence will result in a distorted picture. Your implication that because he knew a pimp, Shakespeare can’t possibly have written such noble verse as it attributed to him is pure prejudice masquerading as argument. One might just as well argue that the Earl of Oxford’s adultery makes him incapable of writing such verse.
