What is the best Doctor Who forum on the web?
There are quiet a few forums and which is best suited to you
really is down to taste. The biggest forum is the old Outpost
Gallifrey which is know known as The Doctor Who Forum.
It is a huge board with thousands of members, some of them
well-known fans-turned-pros. (Their numbers have or currently
include Kate Orman, Jonathan Blum, Lance Parkin, Keith Topping and,
occasionally though not currently, Steven Moffat.) It is not for
all tastes and because of the high numbers it is easy to feel
swamped on there. All aspects of Doctor Who are covered on
Of the smaller boards there is the Digital Spy Doctor Who
board, which is probably the most balanced out of all of them.
It primarily looks at the New Series but there are enough Old
Series fans who post on there to illict conversation.
Livejournal.com has a number of communities devoted to Doctor
Who, including doctorwho.
For New Series haters, Russell and his continuation get a hard
time (to put it mildly) at The Leisure Hive, a very small
board that may come across as quite scary but is full of
interesting, intelligent conversations. The topics discussing
Russell and the New Series can go a bit over the top at times but
it is to be taken in context. If you like a good rant about the New
Series and aren't easily offended then visit here and take a look,
but be warned.
The Anorak Zone has a similar tone. Most posters are old
series fans but there are a good mixture of New Series lovers
sprinkled in the mix.
thedoctorwhoforum.co.tv is a very new forum that is currently
under development. While there aren't many users at the moment, its
worth checking it out.
I hope this is helpful but really it is mostly down to your own
There is also new, very good, Doctor Who chat room on
This is a great site. Very new but still great.
