So I just had THIS conversation the other day. And let me preface it by saying that I’m absolutely right to be annoyed. The whole reason the show is called Doctor Who is because The Doctor (occasionally known as John Smith) never tells anyone his real name. The whole River Song thing is tied up in his name. His name is a big deal and so the play on Doctor who? is funny. So, I’m right. If weird. But still, right.
Me: I haaaate when people write Dr. Who. Ugh!Sara: You hate what?Me: Dr. vs Doctor. Because he’s the Doctor, not Who with a medical degree.Sara: …. ::blink::
Me: He’s “The Doctor.” His name is not Who . . . with a medical degree.
Sara: So how is “Doctor Who” any better?Me: Because it spells out what he actually is -Doctor. Plus the proper nerd way to shorten the show is DW, not Dr. Who. So people who do Dr. Who obviously are just trying to jump on a bandwagon without proper jumping gear. It bugs me! I’M A NERD! It bugs meSara: You are a nerd.Me: I’m also a little neurotic.
