Doctor Who celebrates its fiftieth anniversary this year with special episodes that will hopefully feature a few familiar faces, specially commissioned dramas regarding the inception of the show and a few other treats along the way.
But what about the fans? Doctor Who’s fanbase can’t be ignored, older enthusiasts that have risen the ranks in the BBC have now been producing the show for nine years, bringing it to life on television. Other fans have been manning the production of Doctor Who Magazine, Big Finish Productions, fanzines, original fiction and all sorts of other Doctor Who related goodness. Then there are the fans who have been keeping the passion of Doctor Who alive by watching it, buying it and talking about it until they’re blue in the face. What are their thoughts on this very special year?
Doctor Who: Celebrating 50 Years of Fandom aims to answer exactly that question. The documentary will look at the passion that goes into loving Doctor Who and exactly what it is that makes friends of the Time Lord tick.
As we told you last time, the makers of the independent film will be meeting with Doctor Who fans from all over the world as well as well-known Doctor Who faces such as Rob Shearman and, announced most recently, Louise Jameson who played Leela alongside Tom Baker’s Fourth Doctor.
