#NewToWho campaign: my Doctor Who beginnings

I pride myself to be one of the Lucky Ones: I was one of the children brought back to literature by Harry Potter. 

One of the characters that I thought were challenging and interesting to play, in the movies, was Barty Crouch Jr (spoiler alert?): being so little time “on screen”, the actor who would portray him had to be very very talented to give you the sense of that character, his story and soul.

David Tennat did it brilliantly, so I got curious and checked what else had he done. Doctor Who was a famous sci-fi show, and I used to read a lot of Asimov (I still do when I can). 

I started with Eccleston, and between 2006 and 2008 I saw the first four season of the reboot in English, with no great skills in that language, at first.

I followed the specials and Matt Smith seasons “live”, when BBC broadcasted them, and saw the 50th anniversary special with very special friends from a little home in Italy, where I am from.

I look forward to see Capaldi as the Doctor, for he conquered my heart in The Hour as Randall Brown before the announcement - and even after, with the filmography I was able to find so far (Inside the mind of Leonardo, Soft top hard shoulder, Local Hero, etc.)

I also hope I can catch up with some Classic Who!

I have introduced friends to the show, and our bond became stronger. When I found out some new friends had already watched it, we bonded even more.

Doctor Who helped me to learn the language I used at university and work, and now I am in Dublin for my first work experience abroad. It helped me to be a better person, it refined my taste for good literature and art, and still helps me believe that I am worth something, and that I am important, even if I feel I am just a little human being in a very very big and scary and mad world.

doctorwho:

Doctor Who is a show that brings a lot of people together: that’s what fandom is all about and what makes it so great. Sometimes just introducing someone to a show we like can greatly impact and shape our relationships to each other in really positive ways. Sharing a love for the things that are important to us strengthens our bonds with each other, and brings us closer together. 

For today’s #NewToWho post, let’s talk about who got us into doctor who and how they convinced us to start watching. Did a close friend tell you about it who you now watch the show with all the time? Maybe a parent or teacher who grew up on Classic Who made you want to see what the man with the blue box was all about? How has sharing Doctor Who with this person changed or shaped your relationship to them? 
Whatever your story is, we’d like you to tell us about it by making a tumblr post sharing it and using the #NewToWho tag. We’ll be reblogging some of your posts all day in recognition of the people who convinced you to join the best fandom this side of the Kasterborous constellation.
