In the years since Doctor Who left regular production, expression of fandom has
left the realms of poor reproduced magazines and taken to the high tech world
of websites, newsgroups and mailing lists.
Although the medium has changed, the passion and energy has remained. Despite
the presence of a high quality official site from the BBC, the number of fan
sites seems in constant growth.
The most impressive UK site has to be Roger Anderson�s Cuttings
This site features �1500 scans of newspaper and listings magazine articles
covering Doctor Who since 1963�.
That this remarkable resource is available for free is an amazing testament
to Anderson�s generosity and zeal for the show. The site has been recognised
by the British Film Institute as �an impressive cuttings database�.
Other notable sites include the official home of the Restoration Team, overseers
and producers of the BBC DVD and Video range. In depth articles on the clean
up of each story for release provide an unparalleled view behind the scenes
of DVD production.
In the face of such high quality offerings it may seem unlikely that other
fans would venture online with their own, often smaller, sites. Although some
sites, such as Doctor Who Online, choose to follow a similar format to the
other sites look to appeal to a niche market.
Although Google is often your friend, serious browsers of Doctor Who websites
should bookmark Paul Harman�s Doctor
Who Web Guide which lists just about
every site worth a look.
