The new generation of Who fans is wonderful and vibrant and busy on Tumblr, but it's hard to have a proper geeky conversation when most of the best comments are hidden away in tags and reblogs. Dreamwidth is a classic-Livejournal clone, so it's easier to have discussions here.

So, I'm going to be using it for my meta posts, discussions of episodes, and fanfic archiving.

In case you haven't bumped into me on Tumblr, this is me (Bigon voice):

Originally posted on Tumblr, this meta post digs up classic Who canon on two surprisingly complicated questions:

  • How and when did we first learn the Doctor wasn't human?
  • Was he ever called "Doctor Who" in classic Who, or only "Doctor"? 

It's tempting to say that the Doctor was explicitly nonhuman from the start of the show (in 1963, you whippersnappers ;)). In fact, his status was ambiguous for several seasons, and yes, I do remember the pilot episode's title!
