How did you hear about us?

My sister introduced me to the group by surprising me with a trip to the January meetup to watch "A Christmas Carol" and "The Snowmen." I'd never even heard of Meetup before that.

Who's your favorite Doctor, and why?

Such a difficult question! Tom Baker was my first, and so he defined the character for me. Of he classic years, he is my favorite. I liked David Tennant's for the first couple of years very much, but toward the end he was so morose and melancholic in his portrayal that it was almost painful to watch. That said, two of my favorite stories are from the Tennant years: "Human Nature/Family of Blood," and "The Girl in the Fireplace." Christopher Eccleston is often overlooked and underappreciated for what he brought to the role in his short tenure. And we owe him a debt for bringing a new generation of fans to the franchise. However, of the three new Doctors, I name Matt Smith as the best, He has brought back the Doctor's core characteristic: his ALIENNESS. He often is at a loss to understand why the humans around him behave as they do ("Why do you have to be so HUMAN?"), but he loves and protects them anyway.

Who are your favorite Whoniverse monsters?

The Silence and the Weeping Angels. I am tired of Dalek stories, though I recognize their significance in the mythos.

Introduction

I've been a fan of the Doctor since the Tom Baker years, and love sharing the rebooted series with my kids. In addition to Doctor Who, I'm a Sherlock fan and a hobby gamer.
