Doctor who fans are ones that get a lot of strange looks. That's because they are a defiant example of an interpretive community. The show is filled with such strange words that if anyone else were to over hear them they would think we were making up our own language or have gone crazy. There are even some good friends of mine who like to dress up as the characters on any given day and even some who have came over to me crying from a certain episode they have just watched. Now anyone outside of this unique community would probably just shake their heads or laugh because they have not yet seen the show and don't understand it in a way that the fans do.
