Who’s Changing-An Adventure in Time with Fans, a new documentary co-produced by Blogtor Who and Talking Who, came to the land of baked beans, clam chowder, and the biggest tea party ever on Thursday night. Boston’s Sci-Fi Film Festival hosted a showing of the full-length documentary, which explores the changes in Doctor Who fandom in recent years.
Since Doctor Who returned in 2005 and became one of the BBC’s premiere programs, there do seem to be more and more fans who are female, who dress up in character-inspired costumes (cosplay), and who wear very cool bowties. The documentary looks into these perceived changes and features interviews and comments from a virtual Cyberfleet of Doctor Who celebrities, including: Louise Jameson (Leela), Neve McIntosh (Madame Vastra), Sophie Aldred (Ace), Dan Starkey (Strax), Caitlin Blackwood (Amelia Pond), Simon Fisher-Becker (Dorium Maldovar), Catrin Stewart (Jenny Flint), Andrew Smith (Full Circle), James Moran (The Fires of Pompeii), Eric Saward (Earthshock), Jane Espenson (Torchwood: Miracle Day), script editor/author Gary Russell, and many more.
For those of us who couldn’t make it to Boston, the DVD version of Who’s Changing is available to order online (from Amazon) or in selected shops (including Forbidden Planet), or a streaming version can be rented from the official website, priced at £3.49.
