A Teaspoon And An Open Mind: A Doctor Who Fan Fiction Archive

Most of my experience is with the new series (but I'm very committed to keeping to overall canon, so I'm trying to learn as much as I can about the older versions). My first experience with the Doctor was catching an episode of "The Empty Child" while in London for a month. Considering I'm a sucker for WWII, there was no better episode to get me interested, and boy, did it work!

Plus, cliffhanger ending.

So I eagerly looked for the next episode to air, and when it showed, I was ready for it.

Only...it was a different Doctor, a different time period, a different companion, and NOTHING familiar. I thought I recognized Captain Jack, but I wasn't entirely sure, and I wasn't even certain that I was watching Doctor Who at all. I gave up after half an hour.

(Incidentally, I'd landed on "The Sound of Drums". BIG change, much confusion.)

Upon returning home to the U.S., I ordered the first season with Christopher Eccleston from NetFlix, and promptly was hooked. When "The Empty Child" arrived, I bounced so hard on the couch I nearly fell off.

CE is my first Doctor, but I've got a soft spot for David Tennant. Plus, my husband seems to channel Ten's exuberance and gob, so I find him lots easier to write. I have a baby son, Andrew, but I've decided his First Doctor will be the Eleventh Doctor. Just makes sense, you know? New Baby, New Doctor. I like the symmetry! :)
