Name: Gehayi
'Your Doctor' plus your Favourite Doctor: Four was the first Doctor I saw. I don't really have a favorite Doctor. Of the ones I've seen, I like Three, Four, Five, Nine, Ten and Eleven. I can't stand the Colin Baker Doctor, and Seven and Eight were never aired where I live.
Favourite companion(s): With New Who? Donna Noble. I heart Donna Noble so much, and I HATE the ending she was given. With Classic Who? Sarah Jane Smith, Tegan Jovanka, Vislor Turlough.
Favourite minor character(s): Well, you can't call him a minor character, as he's a secondary in his own right, but I really love stories featuring the Master in any incarnation--Roger Delgado, the lich version played by Peter Pratt and Geoffrey Beavers, Anthony Ainley or John Simm. (I never saw the Eighth Doctor movie, so I can't comment on the Eric Roberts version.) Also, I like Brigadier Alastair Lethbridge-Stewart, probably because I remember all of the UNIT stories back in the day. From New Who alone? Wilfred Mott and Reinette, who would have been outstanding companions for the Doctor, and Jenny, the Doctor's daughter.
Favourite ship(s): Rory/Amy! Because they're adorable together, and damn, Rory went through so MUCH to protect Amy for more than 2000 years. And even when she didn't remember him, she still missed him without knowing why. That's the way to play true love.

If you want to know who I ship the Doctor with...I don't ship the Doctor with anyone. Actually, I like it much better if he's NOT in a romantic or sexual relationship with his companions, because Old Who didn't ship the Doctor. Some of the fans did, but the show didn't. Consequently, I really, really, REALLY dislike Doctor/Rose. Rusty pushed it so damned hard, and romances between the Doctor and his companions feel consummately wrong to me.

That said, I don't get into shipping wars either. Ship who you want; that's your prerogative. What business is it of mine?
Some favourite episode(s): I'm going to take this Doctor by Doctor.

The Third Doctor: Spearhead from Space; The Claws of Axos; The Three Doctors.

The Fourth Doctor: Pyramids of Mars; The Masque of Mandragora; Image of the Fendahl; the Key to Time season; State of Decay; The Keeper of Traken.

The Fifth Doctor: Castrovalva; Kinda; Snakedance; The Black Guardian Trilogy; The Five Doctors; The Caves of Androzani.

The Sixth Doctor: The Twin Dilemma; The Mark of the Rani.

The Ninth Doctor: The End of the World; The Unquiet Dead; The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances; Boom Town; Bad Wolf/The Parting of the Ways.

The Tenth Doctor: School Reunion; The Girl in the Fireplace; The Impossible Planet/The Satan Pit; The Shakespeare Code; Gridlock; Human Nature/Family of Blood; Blink; Utopia/The Sound of Drums/Last of the Time Lords; The Fires of Pompeii; The Doctor's Daughter; The Unicorn and the Wasp; Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead; Midnight.

The Eleventh Doctor: The Eleventh Hour; The Vampires of Venice (though I'm an oddball in that I feel sorry for the Saturnynians); Vincent and the Doctor.

Fic writer? What genres?: Yes, but I haven't written much in the Who fandom. Most of my stuff is gen, and I lean more toward action-adventure (with or without a little slashiness), historical AU, urban fantasy, and crossovers. I also like writing about minor (and often unpopular) characters rather than major ones. I rarely write love stories, and when I do, the love story is ALWAYS the B-plot; something else has to be going on, or I get bored stiff.
Favourite Who communities back at LJ: Didn't belong to any. I followed a Doctor Who through history ficathon even after I bailed on it, but that was about it.
Other Fandom(s): Former ones? Buffy, Highlander and Harry Potter. Present ones: Doctor Who, Shakespeare AUs and The Dresden Files (bookverse AND TV-verse). Eternal fandom? Star Trek TOS.
Fez?: It's exactly in keeping with the weird fashion sense of the Doctor. (Long scarves and celery in the lapel, anyone?)
Anything else? I'm disabled, I do a bit of freelance editing on the side, and I'm currently working on two novels of my own.

I thought I was the only person in existence who did not like Colin as the Doctor. OF course, I didn't like him as the Gallifreyan guard either.

I barely remember the story with Commander Maxil. And I know I should, since it was a Fifth Doctor story and I wouldn't have missed any episodes of Who for the world.

You really never met anyone who disliked Six? I never knew anyone who liked the Sixth Doctor!

I couldn't believe how many fans of his I encountered, to be perfectly honest. As desperate for Who as I would get, I still tended to mock Six if those were the episodes I could find on.

Colin himself has a lot of loyal fans due to his amiable diligence at promoting the show over the years and his good-natured participation with the fans at cons - plus his audio adventures more than redeemed the ill-fated television run. I started off as a Six-hater, to be honest, but over time as I learned more about why his Doctor was portrayed the way he was and how little of the dislikable aspects were Colin's fault he has grown on me. I still can't deal with Peri in any form but I've found myself getting rather fond of Six in spite of that horrid coat they foisted on him - but alas, he still lands near the bottom of the heap whenever I sort them by favor.

That makes sense. He's one of the few that between my father and I we never got a chance to meet, of the first seven. (Both men who portrayed One, and Six are the only ones we never met).
