Why Doctor Who is my Favourite TV Show and inspires me as a Writer
I remembered when I was in college in 2003 when my uncle told me a show called Doctor Who was appearing on the ABC here in Australia of reruns starting from the First Doctor’s first story ‘A Unearthly Child’ it was a show that my uncle enjoyed watching in his younger days and so I decided to watch it with him. I was always interested in time travel and science fiction as a writer and a fan of the Back to the Future trilogy films. What got me interested in Doctor Who is the show’s ability to be flexible with the stories and the the way that any story you could think of could slot into Doctor Who with ease compared to other TV shows. It could be a serious story, a children’s type storyline or something far out there – it wouldn’t be out of place with Doctor Who.
