Katie had never heard of Doctor Who until 'Rose' aired in 2005. From that moment on, she was hooked, actively searching out Doctor Who merchandise from both old and new school. Her current favourite pieces are her 12" Imperial Dalek, more often known as Steve, and her Palitoy Dalek, who has yet to gain himself a name.
Now admittedly more of a classic series fan, her favourite Doctor has ended up being the Sixth and her favourite companion being Ace. She admits to having a 'thing' for the eighties Doctors and their companions, although she does love all of the Doctors and all of the companions. Yes, even Mel and Adric.
Although her collection will, most likely, remain small, it doesn't bother her that much - she's not too bothered with getting every single piece of merchandise produced, but she would be quite pleased with a few more Dapol figures.
