You know you’re a Whovian when (Part 1)

You know you’re a Whovian when:

  • Any kind of creaky, wheezy sound makes you think of the T.A.R.D.I.S. 
  • You do a bit of a double take every time you see a statue (and then perhaps wonder what kind of pose you could do when taking a photo with that statue in order to make it look like it is killing you).
  • Bowties make you think “bowties are cool,” in Matt Smith’s voice.
  • The sentence “I don’t want to go,” breaks your heart a little every time you hear it.
  • A Van Gogh painting always brings tears to your eyes as you remember his immense pain, and how overwhelmed he was when he learned about his success.
  • You hear yourself explaining the T.A.R.D.I.S. beginning with “it’s bigger on the inside.”
  • You are constantly trying to explain your Doctor Who obsession to the people around you, to convince them you are not crazy.
  • You cringe when people refer to the character as “Doctor Who” instead of “the Doctor.”
  • Every now and then, when you see a statue, you remember Rory and Amy, and tear up a little.
  • Soufflés make you sad for Clara.
  • Wild curly hair always reminds you of River.
  • Sometimes, when you think of the name “River Song,” you remember that it was really Pond, Melody, and tear up again.
  • Libraries both bring you great joy and great sadness, remembering River.
  • Astronaut suits bring up a whole bunch of confusing memories and feelings for you.
  • You accidentally quote Doctor Who daily, and then try to explain the significance of the quote to non-Whovians.
