Doctor Who News no image

Fandom Too Far?

Doctor Who fandom is a funny thing. I recall how back in the day the wonderful Paul McGann Estrogen Brigade (a fanclub of slightly over-enthusiastic but nevertheless lovely ladies) got excited over anything the Eighth Doctor did, from attending conventions to popping out to the shops.

Being a fan (of anything) can often lead to what appears to outsiders as insane, obsessive behaviour – such as wearing coloured scarves, spending a lot of time in front of the TV, shouting, milling around in crowds and socialising with other fans, not to mention bemoaning that what you’ve just poured your heart and soul into watching wasn’t as good as it should have been.

(I’ll leave you to decide whether I’m referring to Doctor Who or football…)

So onto the point – photos of David Tennant sitting down and prone on the floor are popular enough to warrant their own section of a popular TV blog.

One such image is described thus:

Jardel’s picture is from Glastonbury, apparently, and it’s either supposed to indicate what David Tennant looks like when he gets out of bed in the morning or it’s an indication that he’d quite like to be a New Age shaman, given half a chance. It’s not definite whether he’s sitting or not, but I think if we all imagine his bottom, it’s clear that he is.

Look out for an exciting new feature on Kasterborous next week, in which Brian A. Terranova posts his own pictures of Daphne Ashbrook wearing trousers.
