So here is the plan:  for my presentation at the upcoming National PCA/ACA conference in Washington, DC, and in honour of the fiftieth anniversary of the Science Fiction Television Series, Doctor Who I will  discuss fans, and their preferences and viewing of Doctor Who.  Ambitious, I know.

In order to do this I need to know what fans think, so I have devised a  little survey that I hoping many fans will answer my questions, and send their responses to me at gilliandoctor@gmail.com.  All answers will be kept anonymous, and the paper, after its presentation, will be posted here in my blog,  for all to enjoy.

The questions can be downloaded here in PDF: Doctor Who Surveyx

And here in word: Doctor Who Survey
