    ‘Doctor Who’ turns 50

    Less Fandom, More Lifestyle


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     thegekkos told me, '"Doctor Who" impacted my life the most by leading me to my wife. We both went to a convention in St. Augustine, FL due to our mutual love for Doctor Who and bumped into each other.'
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    Doctor Who is much more then a fandom, it's a lifestyle.
    It has allowed me to express myself in ways nothing has before, It led me to the woman of my dreams and to people I now call my best friends. My doctor will always be Jon Pertwee, the Third Doctor. I watched reruns of Three on PBS when I was a wee lad and when Doctor Who returned in 2005 it filled my heart with joy. And that joy boiled over into a new found love of Cosplay which led me to my fiance'. I can't think of my life without Doctor Who. To me it's not a fandom, it's a lifestyle.
