The Well-Mannered War: The Care and Feeding of New Doctor Who Fans

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We want to have a frank and honest discussion about how to bring new viewers and new fans into the mix we all currently enjoy, no matter what the age group. For example, what fiction interests suggest that one may also enjoy Doctor Who? What is the best “starter episode”? How much of the classic series do you need to watch, or is it okay to just enjoy the newer stuff? Is there such a thing as “too young to understand”? What makes one a fan? When and how would a new fan cosplay? What are the good events for newer fans? These and other topics will be addressed.
