Fan Spotting

Nice to see that Neil Gaiman and his family are enjoying the new Doctor Who.

One of the things that is nice to do is to place Doctor Who in general context of British Science Fiction and Fantasy (and well, the genre generally). Obviously, you see where things like The Time Machine or The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe influence Doctor Who, but then you also have the elements of Doctor Who that show up in something like Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere, or how it all connects to Douglas Adams's work, which was both influenced by Doctor Who and influenced Doctor Who.
