    This isn't the first time a Doctor Who fan created a thread asking if he was the only one on this site despite several existing threads on the subject. What is it about us real jocks (or those fans) that compel them to ask such questions?

    YES! There were so many great moments between Smith and Tennant! I loved every second of it! Having Billie Piper back was awesome. I am excited to see the next season now with the reveals from this latest entry. I was a bit nervous about the new Doctor, but I have been reading up on him a bit. It seems like he will fit into the DW world just fine.

    i totally geeked out! we played a drinking game where if anyone said "doctor" we had to drink. if the doctor said "doctor" then we had to take double. needless to say i drank too much.

    i loved it!

    tom baker was my very first Doctor.

    i remember first discovering the show on PBS when i was much younger. it was on sunday nights at 11 pm and i thought i discovered this incredible secret show that only i knew about, because everyone else was already asleep. it gave me so much comfort in my not-very-happy childhood.

    i thought the scarf around the neck of the one "sciency" girl was a great nod to him. i had NO idea tom baker was going to be in it.

    matt smith is my current favorite Doctor, and i have to admit i have an incredibly strong crush on him. he cemented his place in my heart after the speech he gave to Stormageddon during the "closing time" episode. (well, the whole "fish fingers and custard" gave me the giggles for ages.)

    when i saw both actors doing a scene together, i cried. (i'm a nerdy whovian, so it's allowed.)

    i felt for the first time in years, that same sense of deep wonder i felt when i first discovered the series. i had no idea that tom baker had so deeply impressed himself on my psyche until i saw him again, and with my other favorite Doctor.

    and that final scene with all the incarnations of the Doctor, looking lovingly toward Gallifrey, toward home... i realized that what i've been looking for my entire life.

    amazing how a well-crafted story can move you. then again, "we're all stories in the end."

    but you never forget your first Doctor.

    I, unfortunately, did not get hooked until the reboot of the series with the fantastic Eccleston and loved Tennant's reign thereafter. It took a while for Smith to grow on me, but now I am going to miss him. While Tennant was a great Doctor, he also had some the best companions, IMHO, with Donna Noble being my favorite.

    RIGHT! I got hooked on the Catherine Tate show just to see more of her! I was torn between her fate and Rose's fate until Rose got her half-human, half-Time Lord guy. She saved the universe, but can't remember any of it for even an instant... tragic.

    i TOTALLY geeked out last week when BBC AMERICA dedicated the week to doctor who. loved the specials this past weekend and i've watched them several times since, and each time, i pick up on something new.
    no guy, you're not alone. you are amongst friends.

    Copied and pasted this from another DW thread... but it's important enough for me to say it twice.. haha..

    OK... SO glad this thread is here... I've been a closeted Doctor Who Fanatic since I was a kid. I tuned into the "classic" era when it was re-broadcast on PBS stations just in time to see 5th regenerate into 6th... and have tried to watch everything before that and since.

    So... I'm coming out of the closet in good company... again. :-D

    I loved the 50th anniversary episode, what it added to the overall story mythology, and a lot of the little in-jokes they wrote in. Loved the way the 3 doctors bickered about, and John Hurt's "damn kids" attitude.

    It's too bad that Christopher Eccleston was being too big of a prat to come back for the special. All three "new age" doctors with the cameo of a "classic" (and that 1-second peek at a "future" doctor) would have created a global nerdgasm.

    Yes. You don't want to see my facebook. I had a countdown going on and all kinds of craziness.

    I am more than obsessed.

    Bitch, please. I was a Trekkie before the sixties series was even syndicated and a Doctor Who fan since the new Doctor was Tom Baker. If you were a companion you'd be Adam, kicked off the TARDIS for being so self involved that you'd publicly propose that you'd be the only obsessed fan here. Literally, snap!

    I PVRed it and finally watched it last night.

    Meh.

    The story was fine, the acting & spfx were fine, even the surprise cameo at the end was fine...but I honestly found it to be a little lacklustre for a 50th anniversary celebratory episode. It was more like a regular episode than anything else.

    Meh.

    Nope.Metoo. I have Dalek in every room in my house. I also have Tom Baker scarf. And every single episode in existance on DVD.

    Hosted a 50th Anniversary Party on Saturday. And even saw two William Hartnell stories live on stage the same day. Awesome!icon_biggrin.gif

    I agree with everything you wrote except one thing... The nerdgasm happened and is happening now, even without Eccleston!

    I only became a fan of the show in 2011, when a then-boyfriend introduced me to it. Since then I've watched the reboot through multiple times, and am trying to get my hands on the original run.
