I'm sorry to say I'm only a recent convert to Doctor Who.
Through the wonders of Twitter ,I had come to know and become a fan of Matthew Dow Smith's artwork. Luckily enough for me around the time of my first exposure to to his work Matt was the artist on the Doctor Who comic put being put out by IDW. So, in a bit of a backwards fashion, my first exposure to the Doctor was through the comics. He and Tony Lee's work on the Fugitive arc of the ongoing series to be precise.
Needless to say I was hooked and quickly sought out the TV show that inspired this wonderfully offbeat comic. I started with the Eccleston episodes and made quick work of all the recent seasons.
Just a few nights ago I finished making my way through the Matt Smith (no relation to Matthew Dow Smith by the way) episodes and couldn't possibly be more in love with show. Just top-notch stuff from beginning to end.
So a big thanks to Matthew Dow Smith, for without his amazing work to follow and second-to-none enthusiasm for the material, I might not have ever stumbled on to something so fantastic. Cheers, Matt.
