I love Moffat's Doctor Who....I also don't watch much current TV, so that's a bit of an issue for anyone reading this. ;) I'm a fan of the first two seasons of Torchwood (and I've apologized to anyone who began watching the show, upon my recommendation, with COE...). Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Star Trek--especially the original series, which I am old enough to have watched, and the reboot film. Harry Potter.... except, based upon my experiences, I wouldn't recommend anyone in the world going anywhere near that fandom. Although, to be fair, I understand that a lot of fandoms have the same issues....which is why I've never, ever gone near TW (read--it's revoltingly ugly), BVS, or ST...........................................There are better ways to spend one's time.

Doctor Who is only really long if you decide you want to watch *all* previous 10 Doctors to the present one. If you include Classic Who next year will be series 33 (or Series 7 if you only use New Who).

 

If you didn't grow up with Doctor Who (which I did, my first Doctor was Three) it's kind of a daunting task to try to catch up on the classic stuff. There are quite a few referenced to Classic Who in New Who but you can enjoy it without knowing them - that's what all the new fans are doing after all!

 

Fandom wise, Torchwood used to be insane in a bad way at times but you could avoid most of that if you wanted (which I managed to do quite happily).

Whoops yes, How I Met Your Mother. Sorry 'bout that. :P

 

I've been trying to catch up on Classic Who too, but it's so tricky with many of the older episodes missing, and the DVDs are so expensive!! I've been trying to watch all of the really well known episodes as I can find them.

 

I miss the Torchwood fandom at it's height. Those were good times. But there were some crazy fandom-war stuff going on. Torchwood fandom mostly survived after COE, but it's just been DEAD it seems since Miracle Day aired. :(

It´s true the Torchwood forum went through a very rough period with lots of anger and stupidness but now it is totally wonderful again. The troublemakers went away and a lot of newcomers have joined lately so it´s none of that silliness left. And it is certainly far from dead!

 

And I have a question about classic Doctor Who. As I happen to live in a country where it´s not on any TV-channel I had to buy the box with the first five seasons (of the new series). A couple of times it´s been mentioned that the docktor was a father once upon a time. Can you tell me more about that? Was it before the whole destruction of Galifrey? Before he started to travel? Or do he have living children somewhere out there?

 

Thankful for answers. :)

The first Doctor's initial companion, Susan, called him grandfather. To be a graendfather he had to be a dad first.

And there was Jenny, the girl made from his DNA, so technically he was her dad. She's not dead either and I wish they'd bring her back. Tennant's doctor is quoted as saying "I was a dad, once" in the 11th episode of the second series, "Fear Her".

I don't really watch a great deal of TV, so I'll just provide you with a list of things that I actually watch religiously:

 

Doctor Who is my all time favourite tv programme. I have watched it pretty much my whole life.

Torchwood (And I quite enjoyed miracle day - well, for the first couple of episodes anyway)

Merlin

(basically anything the BBC/Moffat is involved in ;) )

Scott and Bailey

90210 (Yes, I know it is so trashy, but I love it so much!)

Hmm, in terms of shows with their fandoms, one of the top ones that comes to mind would definitely be ReBoot. Although, it seems to have quieted down a bit in the past couple of years. I still find it's a fandom with mostly warm people that can share their love of an awesome cartoon.

 

Other shows I'm currently invested in (ie. new episodes are/will be made):

 

Big Bang Theory

Glee

Mythbusters (they're still making new ones, right?)

Game of Thrones (fan of the books, actually)

 

And... um... hmm. While I have my little anime collection, I don't think I'm actually watching a current show at the moment. I watched the first couple of episodes of Tiger and Bunny but then life got busy all of a sudden and I kept forgetting to pick it back up. I'll need to do that. Although it's probably been licensed in North America by now...?

Current stuff:

CSI (Vegas and NY). I like crime drama, and I'm quite fond of some of the characters.

NCIS. Because they are a lovely dysfunctional bunch.

Being Human. Series 4 was a bit disappointing (I miss the old bunch!) but still interesting, I'm curious to see where it goes from here.

Fringe. Because it's weird and intriguing and has great characters.

The Mentalist. Funny.

Castle. Hilarious and very true at times.

Game of Thrones. Series 1 hooked me, now I'm reading the books... Curious to see how they'll squeeze the second book into series 2.

Merlin. Because, funny and good characters, despite being just about very loosely based on something that once resembled Arthurian legend.

 

Not current stuff:

Torchwood. Series 1 and 2. I do admire the production values of CoE, but I don't like my universes being destroyed just because, so I stay away from that one.

Stargate. At least Atlantis and SG-1. Can't comment on Universe yet cos I've not seen it.

Star Trek. All flavours thereof.

Highlander (The series). I prefer Duncan McLeod. So sue me.

Buffy. Because, Spike.

Lost. Currently rewatching the first five series so we can watch series 6. Spoil me and I will main and kill. You have been warned.

Aside from Sherlock, the only current tv show I am watching is Elementary (which I really like, but am not involved in the fandom of).

 

Again aside from Sherlock, the only shows whose fandom I've been involved in are Star Trek (original) and Magnum, PI.
