17 faces that will be familiar to every Doctor Who fan

The other day, an old friend of mine stuck a Buzzfeed article on her timeline. It was called ‘24 Faces That Will Be Familiar To Every Feminist‘.

Did I laugh? For sure. Did I empathise? Well, of course not. If this is the way it is for women then fine; I’m not going to argue with that. I try not to get involved in gender politics if I can help it; too often I get accused of Mansplaining (whereas the truth is I have assorted online arguments with men and women and am equally condescending and patronising to both). I bring my children up to be as accommodating and reasonably-minded as they can be; beyond that I’m not sure what else I can do.

But I can turn that list into something a little closer to home, and here it is. And as with Police Academy, another installment is always on the cards.

(The list is entirely mine, but I am indebted to Stupid Faces of Doctor Who for many of the images – not the sort of Tumblr blog I’d normally follow, but these things do come in handy.)

1. When someone insists “HE’S NOT CALLED DOCTOR WHO, HE’S CALLED THE DOCTOR!”.

2. When you witness an argument over whether Paul McGann is ‘Classic’ or not.

3. “There’s only one Doctor, and it’s David Tennant.”

4. “The Doctor’s supposed to be young and handsome. This new one’s too old.”

5. When someone tells you how much they love the Rose / Tenth Doctor love story.

6. “It’s not real Doctor Who unless it’s Doctors 1-8. This new stuff is rubbish. It’s not proper Doctor Who. I only watched one episode.”

7. When you saw the Brigadier resurrected as a Cyberman.

8. Fan theory, generally.

9. “And what if Barty Crouch Jr. in that Harry Potter film was ACTUALLY THE TENTH DOCTOR?”

10. When someone paints Michael Grade as ‘the man who killed Doctor Who‘.

11. Oh look, it’s another ‘Bow ties are cool’ meme.

12. “Ha ha! Look at Clara slapping the Doctor! Isn’t that funny?!?”

Faces_15

13.When you meet someone who dismisses ‘Love and Monsters’ as a low point.

14. “If you don’t like it, you don’t have to watch it.”

Faces_13

(Yes. Yes we do.)

15. “I WILL ACCEPT THIS UNSUBSTANTIATED RUMOUR AS FACT, BECAUSE IT SUITS ME.”

Faces_14

16. God some of these Facebook groups have silly names.

17. “No, but Capaldi MIGHT regenerate into Smith. It could happen.”
