One of the most appealing aspects of Doctor Who is that the reality created within the show is conceptually strong enough to handle the replacement of every single actor in it. This means that fandom and appreciation can be comfortably spread over the entire 50-year run.

That last post reminded us of one of our favorite quotes from Doctor Who guest star alumnus (Series 1: The Long Game), Simon Pegg:“Being a geek is all about being honest about what you enjoy and not being afraid to demonstrate that affection.

Being a geek is extremely liberating.”
