The BBC Doctor Who site are asking fans to be wary of false accounts and imposters on Twitter after its own Twitter news feed nudged over one million followers.

The site warned fans to be wary of any tweets purporting to be from either Matt Smith – who has never had a Twitter account or young Amelia herself Caitlin Blackwood – who does have an account, @ameliapondfan, which is run on her behalf by her family.

The site offers this piece of handy advice for fans wary of following any Doctor Who personnel:

In general it’s best to look closely into any Twitter feed you’re not familiar with. Although many accounts are legitimate, the golden rule relating to Doctor Who tweeters must remain: Beware imposters!

However it’s not all fakes and imposters; recently Peter Davison and Janet Fielding have joined the their fellow Doctor Who associates Colin Baker, Caro Skinner, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvil who have all been tweeting for some time.

Also remember: for all the latest news, reviews and opinion (and a chat with our affable editor) why not follow our very own Kasterborous twitter account?


Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
