From earliest memories to fan creativity to people running the show, Who’s Changing is a unique Doctor Who documentary, or Whomentary, that takes a look at how fandom has changed so drastically over the years.
Charting its rise from church halls in the Seventies to exhibition centres across the world today, we chat to those who were there at the very start of Doctor Who fandom and those who kept the fire burning all those years and now those who celebrate in the most imaginative and brilliant of fashions.
But it’s not just fans that you’ll find here. Giving their thoughts on fans and fandom are such Doctor Who legends like Leela (Louise Jameson) and Ace (Sophie Aldred) and new favourites such as Strax (Dan Starkey) and Madame Vastra (Neve McIntosh).
Who’s Changing is a fun and fascinating look at how fans have changed with the times, just like Doctor Who did, and how these very fans and their amazing creativity go on from strength to strength and sometimes, just sometimes, end up in the show itself.
Starring: Louise Jameson (Leela), Neve McIntosh (Madame Vastra), Dan Starkey (Strax), Sophie Aldred (Ace), Catrin Stewart (Jenny Flint), Caitlin Blackwood (Amelia Pond), Simon FisherBecker (Dorium Maldovar), Gary Russell (Doctor Who script editor), Jane Espenson (Buffy, Torchwood), James Moran (The Fires of Pompeii) and many, many more!
Cultbox: FOUR STARS. “With its broad cast of colourful fan interviewees, in addition to an impressive roster of people involved with the show, Who’s Changing paints an affectionate portrait that is refreshingly far removed from the regular anorak stereotypes.”
Ain’t It Cool: “WHO’S CHANGING is a very well considered and adroitly navigated journey through WHOvianness… It’s a great way to get back in touch with one’s WHOvian roots.”
