Over the years there have been a few individuals who have helped formulate the Doctor Who Online you see before you today. One of those people (and we're sure he'd be surprised to learn of this) is Doctor Who fan, author and publisher, David J. Howe. At a Doctor Who Appreciation Society event, back in the early days of our online journey, David gave us some sage advice about cutting our own path and being original with the site. For too long we had followed too closely in the footsteps of Outpost Gallfrey and tried to emulate their style, and it was David who kindly set us on the right path and helped us carve our own direction.
David J. Howe is a name that most Doctor Who fans worth their salt, will know - and those who do not, really should! He has authored and co-authored some of the best factual Doctor Who books in many a fans collection. Titles such as The Sixties, The Seventies, The Eighties - not to mention the Handbooks and the Transcendental Toybox books, have all been a companion to this site, as well as important reference points.
What David doesn't know about Doctor Who merchandise isn't worth knowing, and with the recent news that he plans to open a merchandise museum, showcasing his lifetime's collection, we were incredibly excited. The whole operation needs your help though - the fans! David, and his lovely wife Sam, have started an Indiegogo campaign to raise the £30,000+ needed to open the museum. Fans can help from as little as £1 and there are some truly fantastic perks, ranging from getting a shout out from the man himself, to having Dinner with Chase Masterson or Frazer Hines!
To give you an idea of how popular the campaign has been, its only been live for 48 hours and has already accumulated £2000+ of donations, and we want you to help them smash their target, so please donate whatever you can afford and in the Summer of 2018 we can all be rewarded with an incredibly exciting museum experience!
