Affirmational and Transformational Doctor Who Fan Videos

This was a brilliant Worldcon talk (one of only two single-speaker events I was able to attend, the speaker at the other one being me). It was the keynote speech for the academic track of programming, and basically involved Karen Hellekson talking us through a theory of fanvids - comparing and contrasting (as I had never thought to do) the various attempts to reconstruct lost episodes with some of the reinterpretations of the Whoniverse undertaken by the fan community. These were my favourite three of the dozen or so that she showed:

An alternative trailer for the 50th anniversary, by VG984:


"Papa Don't Preach", the story of Jack Harkness becoming pregnant by the Master but staying with Ianto despite the Doctor's disapproval (36MB download)

and Wholock, which speaks for itself.


Enjoy.
