Which of the following would you say best describes how your read the series?
I read every single fic as it was posted or shortly afterwards.
I plan to read every single fic, but it was hard to keep up. Now posting has stopped I will have time to catch up.
I read most of the fics, but some weeks I was just too busy, so I missed a few out here and there.
I probably read about half of the fics.
I read a few of the fics, but I missed out most of them.
I started off planning to read it all, but after a few fics I wandered away

Which of the following would you say was the type of fic you most enjoyed reading this series?
Fics that were part of an arc of 2-3 (or more) episodes, that would have made very little sense without reading the previous episode.
Fics that strongly relied on emotional material from previous fics, but were standalone in terms of plot.
Fics that largely stood-alone, but still referenced a few things from other episodes and/or contributed a small amount to the final arc.
Fics that were complete stand-alones with no references to others in the series.
We've been treating this a lot like the show - calling them 'episodes' and the like. And the finished fics often took the tone of DW episodes. How do you feel about this?
I liked it - a bit of an action/adventure romp with some D/R cuteness is just what I wanted from something acting like the TV show!
It didn't feel much like the show to me: I was too aware it wasn't canon.
If you're going to pretend to be the TV show, YOU CAN'T HAVE SHAGGING IN THE TARDIS.
I would have been interested in seeing more of the sorts of things Doctor Who can't do in terms of sex and relationship stuff.
I would have been interested in seeing more of the sorts of things Doctor Who can't do in terms of violence/angst/plotting (and am aware, having seen WoM, that "things DW wouldn't do" is basically BLOOD EVERYWHERE AND DEAD FLUFFY ANIMALS)
I think you should have gone all the way and had OVERLY DRAMATIC "NEXT TIME" trailers at the end of each fic.

Rose and the Doctor are adorable!
