I'm sorry, and I may come off sounding like a Jerk here, but are we honestly battling about "real fans" or "fans of fandom"? What's the qualification for being a 'Real' Doctor Who fan? If you are not Male, 500 pounds, or living in your parents basement, you are not a real fan? Yes, that was mean, but that was the point. That's what people used to think of 'Real' Doctor Who fans. The fact that we can have women, the LGBT community, and even celebrities spread the word of the show, should make fans happy, not to be still stuck to a stereotype that people thought all of us looked like the Comic Book guy from the Simpsons during the 70's/80's.
