    The Sound of the Doctor - Silenced

    The “Whoniverse” has lost a very important figure this week in Graham Strong, who passed away at the age of 69 after a battle with cancer.

    Strong never acted in an episode, nor did he write, produce, film, arrange, or direct an episode. In fact, he wasn’t involved with the production of Doctor Who at all. Graham Strong was a fan – he was one of us. And we owe him a lot.

    Younger geeks may not understand this, but in the days before the internet (and instant access to everything), we were at the mercy of broadcasters. If we wanted to watch something again, we couldn’t just pull it up on iTunes or Netflix – we had to wait for it to be broadcast again. That, or tape it!

    When I was young, I can remember taking episodes of Star Trek on a VHS recorder, so I could watch them again whenever I wanted. That is probably familiar to most geeks over a certain age - fans at that time commonly recorded episodes of the programs they enjoyed. They did this well before...

    The Zealotry of The Doctor

    Have you ever heard of the Zeal of the Convert? This phrase comes from the perception that converts to a new religion are frequently more fiercely devout than those who were born into it. Of course, not all converts are aggressive zealots – I wouldn’t even say most of them are. Despite the negative implications of this stereotype, l believe it is logical and perfectly understandable that someone who reached an epiphany about their own existence would be very excited about their new awareness and passionate about traveling down the path they just discovered. They might even try to convince you to go with them!

    This phenomenon isn’t limited to religion. You can find examples of it among people of all kinds wherever someone adopts a new idea or way of thinking. There’s the ex-smoker who becomes fiercely anti-smoking or the new vegetarian that proselytizes about their food choices – no matter what way of thinking you are talking about, it seems like you can find examples...
