|My first doctor|
Today there are fan sites galore. Search Dr. Who and the results are simply amazing. There is an overload if information. Episodes have been deconstructed to the the point where analysis is almost lost. Even the most minute detail about previous shows has been made public. I don't go to fan sites nor do I go to conventions where if the doctor isn't there you can bet you'll get a chance to see one his companions, new and old. I don't think that all those years ago when someone decided to begin putting this show on the air the were creating an icon, but they did. It isn't popularity that keeps it going, it's durability.
