Troughton Is My Doctor was born out of necessity. Those of you who have been with us since our first post know that it was the absence of Doctor Who Worldwide (where I had previously been posting my articles) that caused me to dust off this old blog and start my own Doctor Who news and rumours site.
Well TIMD has reached its one month birthday and to celebrate we are giving each of you a Marco Polo dvd*! Wait, what? Oh… Never mind.
Anyway, a month ago I deleted all the old and forgotten blogs I had started about music and watching William Hartnell stories, bought the domain name, changed the theme and started fresh.
Though I began this project all by myself, Gary Morris and Martin Ruddick joined me very early on, bringing valuable technical insight and amazing Who related opinions. Al Miller wandered in a few weeks later with his amazing Podcastrovalva segments and recently world traveller Andrew Boland has joined the team. The five of us span much of the globe, a couple Canadians, a Briton and an Aussie living in Japan! But you, our readers, reach even further than that.
We have had visitors from all around the world. Obviously the UK is the biggest supporter, but we have viewers in Germany, Australia, New Zealand, The Netherlands, heck even Brazil! From the Ukraine to Puerto Rico and Bulgaria, we have accommodated Doctor Who fans from all over the world. And lots of them, too.
In the past 29 days TIMD has received more than 10,000 hits and published more than 50 articles. We’ve talked about the omnirumour and series 8, New and Classic Who, everything and anything! During that time the website became a sort of unofficial supporter of the Doctor Who Missing Episode Discussion Group on Facebook, providing updates on it’s growth, and also seen the return of Doctor Who Worldwide and its forum The Panopticon a few weeks ago. But don’t worry, we aren’t done yet. No, we are really just getting started
So from the TIMD team, thanks for joining us and stick around because there’s plenty more to come! Follow @troughtonsmydoc to get hear about updates as they happen.
*Unfortunately even if Marco Polo had been released, we are too poor to provide you with a free copy. Sorry.
