I’ve been an avid Doctor Who fan since I was little. It’s the one show whose campines, acting, stories, and questionable special effects don’t really matter. So what if the music is over the top and the lines are delivered with the gravitas of a poodle? It doesn’t matter. It’s Doctor Who!

Alasdair Wilkin’s essay on “Why I am obsessed with old school Doctor Who” on io9 perfectly captures the reasons why Doctor Who, for some of us, is the show that we love unconditionally.

What drives some fans to draw the Doctor’s name in chalk?

Or a pretty graphic version on YouTube? (The Doctor’s Name appeared in Gallifreyan in the episode Demons Run.)
