Return of the FiveWhoFans

After its original inception in January 2009, FiveWhoFans ran on and off until Jon and Billy decided to reboot the channel on 6th February 2012. A remarkable team was assembled: a scientist, a rockstar and even an Irishman.

With a new team and schedule in place, 5WF spent the following year finding an audience and its own unique voice on WhoTube.

The year ended in tragedy when titular member Benji decided to leave, taking loyal mascot Dilbert the Dalek with him.

Aimless Wanderings

In 2013, 5WF set up its own comedic audio adventure series featuring various incompetent incarnations stumbling through eternity.

BOWTIES ARE COOL. WE’RE NOT.

Jon saw the 50th Anniversary trailer early, David played Halo 3 with a Christopher Eccleston soundboard, Richard was released from Siberian prison only to have Peter Capaldi’s reveal ruined for him, new member Livvy uncovered an elaborate conspiracy concerning Matt Smith’s eyebrows and Billy wrote an angry letter to Steven Moffat.

2013 saw FiveWhoFans celebrating 50 years of their favourite show. They also launched a new comedic audio series called Aimless Wanderings, featuring various incompetent incarnations stumbling through eternity. Billy oversaw a competition asking audiences to create a Classic Doctor Who story, which saw hundreds of entries and resulted in many sleepless nights. Jon almost lost his arm successfully animating the first and only episode of 42 Geronimo Lane. Jon and Billy accidentally gave Dan, the FiveWhoFans villain, the channel’s password, resulting in five weeks of a new team.

David left at the end of the year, last seen carried away by a swarm of Cybermats.

THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE

Jon made history when he regenerated into a woman.

ALL OF SPACE. ALL OF TIME. ALL OVER THE INTERNET.

Jon wrote fan fiction, new member and former villain Dan was given three origin stories, Richard took a Bechdel test, Livvy shape-shifted briefly while talking about Colin Baker and Billy spent half the year addicted to 2048. Later in the year, Christel sang about watching Doctor Who and got a job out of it.

In 2014, FiveWhoFans were treated to Peter Capaldi’s first series of Doctor Who. There was a Mummy, lots of trains and Flybermen!!

Midway through the year, Jon departed from the channel, regenerating into a woman before the Master had even thought about it.

HELL BENT

Hell Bent happened and everyone had to talk about it for 51 minutes.

ALL OF TIME. ALL OF SPACE. ALL OVER THE INTERNET. ALL NEW.

Billy started spending an extortionate amount of money on action figures, Christel pretended to love the Tenth Doctor more than Billy does the Ninth Doctor, Dan travelled to the future to discover Class had conquered the world, Richard impressively managed to review two whole episodes of Doctor Who without actually talking about them and Livvy had a long think about Classic Doctor Who and food.

The beginning of 2015 saw the 10th Anniversary of NuWho, which FiveWhoFans celebrated with a magnificent animated tribute created by Dan. Dan later went on to host an election for a new show runner. Nobody won the election. We all lost. Towards the end of the year, Hell Bent was experienced and Drashig somehow became a thing.

LALALALALA PATRICK NESS!

We celebrated Patrick Ness’ new series by putting his name in our song.

LA LA LA LA LA PATRICK NESS!

We celebrated the 30th Anniversary of Doctor Who’s obscure charity single in style with our very own cover of ‘Doctor in Distress’. We also celebrated the arrival of Class by saying nothing about it.

ALL OF TIME. ALL OF SPACE. ALL OVER THE INTERNET.

Billy dressed up as John Hurt, Dan took Arts and Crafts, Christel was recruited by UNIT, Livvy made a fan film and Richard resurrected a musical behemoth first summoned three decades prior. The new member, Phoenix, was unboxed for the first time.

Due to a surplus of national moments, Doctor Who temporarily stopped existing. Billy launched another competiton, this time encouraging people to make their own Class fan films. He and Phoenix later went on to celebrate what they’re hoping shall become the annual tradition of Batman Week. Dan turned out to be Christopher Johnson in a skin suit and he briefly took over the channel for six weeks, rebranding it as SixWhoFans. This came to a thrilling conclusion when Skinless Dan returned from the Downside Updown to save the day.

Richard went too far when he decided to remake Doctor in Distress and mysteriously vanished soon after.

Thank you for experiencing this journey with us for the last 5 years
