The TARDIS Databanks: The Fans 

This page once contained everything from and about the fans of Doctor Who. Here you found pictures of us, our toys, our clothes (FYI, the underpants you'll see if you follow that link are not mine), and the things we've made and written, including software, and stories related to our great obsession.

The content I used to house on this section of the site was so outdated (and in many cases, missing) I've removed all references to it. You might be interested in looking at pictures and video I took at the Gallifrey One 2006 convention.

I've also added a short story I wrote back in 1999, set shortly after the fourth Doctor dropped off companion Sarah Jane Smith and just before he meets Leela. The April 2006 broadcast of School Reunion, featuring the return of Sarah Jane, inspired me to dig out the file and upload it. Click here to read it.

The top left picture is of a home-made Dalek, watched by a group of young fans. This photo dates from the sixties, and may have been taken at the same time as the one to the right, which is of a guest appearance by William Hartnell in 1965.
     
Below these, on the left is a picture of one of the toy Daleks made in the sixties, during the height of Dalekmania. On the right is a picture of some more young fans posing near a rather unconvincing TARDIS.

The drawing of the fourth Doctor at the top of this page was scanned from an issue of Marvel's Doctor Who comic book series which was published during the mid 1980s, featuring colored reprints of the strips from Doctor Who Magazine. The picture was based on a publicity photo from the story City of Death.

You might also want to check out Gallifreyan Embassy for a great fan community, and I recommend their Doctor Who podcast: Podshock.

This page was first created on Saturday, August 17, 1996.


Back to the TARDIS Databanks



The TARDIS Databanks recommends these easy, Plain English computer basics courses.
The lessons are recorded by someone who's been a die-hard Doctor Who fan since the days when computers were the size of refrigerators and had giant spinning tape wheels (like the Master's TARDIS in The Time Monster for example :).

He likes to sneak lots of Doctor Who references into his easy video basic computer training courses -- little easter eggs to give Doctor Who fans a smile while his lessons make you more skilled and confident with your computer.

Both Microsoft Windows basics course and Apple Mac basics course are available.
Try them and see what you think.
