The Merchandise that all True Whovians Must Own

Post by sparacus on Sun Jan 13, 2013 6:34 am

To be a serious, dedicated fan rather than a 'casual' or 'new' fan, I'd say that the following are essential:

1) BBV's 'Auton' trilogy,
2) The VHS or DVD of 'Who on Earth is Tom Baker'
3) A Complete set of the annuals of the classic series era
4) The 'P.R.O.B.E' series on VHS or DVD,
5) Howe, Stammers & Walkers' three books on the 60s, 70s & 80s.
6) 'The Transcendental Toybox' by Howe & Blumberg
7) 'Blue Box Boy' by Matthew Waterhouse
Cool All issues of 'Fanwnak' & 'Bandril'
9) A VHS copy of the 'Silver Nemesis' extended version
10) A complete set of the 1990s Doctor Who Yearbooks

Why only a VHS copy of "Silver Nemesis"?

The DVD is not the extended version.

How many people still have VHS players hooked up to their home theater systems?

I don't think extending Silver Nemesis is going to make it any better.

I'm clearly very casual.

Also guilty. Actually, it no longer works which makes me doubly guilty somehow!

According to spara's list I am too (though I do own the Auton trilogy on VHS - in fact, my video player stopped working just after I copied them to the DVD player's hard drive...)

Spara, I trust you own the tenth and twentieth anniversary Radio Times specials, The Making of Doctor WHo by Malcolm Hulke and Terrance Dicks and The Dalek Pocketbook and Space-Travellers Guide. All serious fans must.

I have to admit to having given away various Who DVDs and books: I had to bite the bullet, while there was still space to move.

When my children were small and Doctor Who was off air (one rather assumed for good) I gave away my complete set of Target novels. They were just sitting in a cupboard (that space issue you mention) and others got the pleasure of them rather than them just mouldering away and me never looking at them again. I really should get rid of books of all sorts but I don't find that easy...

Same here. My classic stuff went to a younger teacher; the new Who has gone to a senior pupil.
