Many of us have friends and family that don’t understand our obsessions. Before I came to the Whoniverse, I was part of another worldwide fandom, one that many people in my life didn’t understand. And no matter how many times or ways I could think of to introduce them to the subject, they were never as into it a I was.
Have you ever tried to show someone who just didn’t understand about Doctor Who what the show was about? Do you have someone who sort of knows the basics about the show, but still doesn’t get why you watch and love it?
In the little video gem above, that somehow we’ve missed since it was posted back before the 50th anniversary, YouTubers The Fine Bros showed a group of teenagers the trailers for the anniversary episode and filmed their reactions. Some of them were obviously fans, some only had a vague knowledge of the show, and others didn’t know the show at all.
The teens were also asked to try to identify certain things from the show, like the TARDIS, the sonic screwdriver, and the Doctor. For the record, I think calling the sonic a magic wand is pretty darned funny.
We also have a bonus delete reaction video for you as well. Watch through to the end for the funniest bit (even if it is a bit juvenile…)
