A fan of sci-fi throughout his life, Shad Gray would watch Doctor Who on PBS as a child. Fascinated by the show but unable to ever see a complete story, it wasn’t until the 2005 revival of the show that he became truly hooked. Thanks to DVD, and the ability to go back and watch all of the available classic episodes, Shad’s fascination quickly turned to passion. The episodes he loved as a child became grander than ever, as seen in their full context. In 2013 he turned his fandom up a notch and founded Torchwood Seven: Denver, a Colorado based fan group that publishes news and original articles about episodes, books, audios, toys and anything else related to the program.
Favorite Doctors: 2nd, 4th, War, and 10th all top the list.
Favorite Companion: Captain Jack Harkness (Note the stripes).
Favorite Villain: “Whatever it was” from the planet Midnight.
Favorite Story: Probably ‘Day of the Doctor’, which was an epic story. It’s between that and ‘Death of the Doctor’ from The Sarah Jane Adventures, or ‘Stolen Earth’/’Journeys End’ because it brought everyone together.
Jacob has been a Whovian for about three years, is a world traveler, and likes long walks on the beach. He began watching the show, starting with Christopher Eccleston. After Matt Smith, Jacob began watching classic Who, and still has a long way to go.
Favorite Doctor: 10th
Favorite Companion: Martha Jones
Favorite Villain: The Daleks
Sarah is a teacher at Denver Public Schools. She was introduced to Doctor Who about 3.5 years ago by her husband’s parents. At first she was a bit hesitant to start a new show and will admit that she didn’t immediately get hooked, but after about the sixth episode she couldn’t stop watching.
Favorite Doctors: 10th, 4th, and War
Favorite Companions: Martha Jones and Cinder (from the book “Engines of War”)
Favorite Villain: The Daleks
Heather is the National Doctor Who Examiner for Examiner.com as well as a host on two Podcasts; The Geek Port and WhoGirls. She was recently highlighted by BBC America in their 50th Anniversary – Best of Doctor Who Online Celebration.
Heather remembers Doctor Who from her childhood, but it would be an understatement to say that she was terrified of Tom Baker. She really became a Whovian with the 2005 season, and has since revisited the classic episodes and loves it all!
Favorite Doctor: 2nd
Favorite Companion: Jamie McCrimmon
Favorite Villain: The Cybermen
