A friend of ours would like some help from the many dedicated Whovians out there. Can you give a little time to share your experiences of being part of this extraordinary fandom?

We are a very dedicated bunch and we have lots of stories to tell. Be it through cosplay, art, fan fiction, conventions, or just simply sitting on the sofa and watching our favourite episodes, numerous times over!

If you think you can help, read on…..

Fandom Research: Focus Groups

Share your experiences of being in a fandom

As part of my university dissertation, I am doing research into fandoms of Sci-Fi/Fantasy TV Shows and films by talking with fans themselves in focus groups.

For me personally, being in a fandom has given me a sense of identity and I feel like being in a fandom is like being in a community.

I want to find out the experiences of other fans belonging to fandoms. Whether your experiences have been positive or negative, I’d love to hear from you.

My focus groups will take place in Manchester between 21st May and 28th May. Alternatively, Skype focus groups are available.

If you are interested, please get in touch by emailing me on
