We spoke recently to Matthew Jacobs and Vanessa Yuille about their current project, a documentary about American Doctor Who Fans called ‘Doctor Who Am I’. (listen here). You can also watch them tell you about their film below.
Matt was the writer of the Doctor Who TV Movie but kept some distance between himself and fandom after the movies critical reception with some fans. Recently he was invited to a fan convention and this documentary charts him being reintroduced to Doctor Who fandom. It also looks in detail at American fans of the show, something that’s not been looked at this way before.

Filming began in February 2015 at the Gallifrey One Convention in Los Angeles with additional interviews with fans shot over the summer and at the Long Island Who Convention in November. It’s due for release next year to tie in with the 20th anniversary of the TV movie.
