In a cinema. The audience included Sylvester McCoy, John Hurt, Matt Smith and Steven Moffat – and me feeling like I was in heaven.
What was your favourite scene?
I got tearful when all the Doctors appeared together – remembering it now I feel a bit tingly.
What do you love about Who?
Many things but particularly that the Doctor himself is not a macho hero; he’s a nerd who is wise, gentle and treats all species the same. Even when he had a chance to destroy the Daleks, he had second thoughts.
How long have you been a fan?
From the start. I only remember a few things from when I was a small child: one of them was the news that President John F Kennedy had been shot and the next night Doctor Whostarted. I remember that first episode frighteningly distinctly. I was very, very excited.

What the shortlist judges say
“It was an excellent celebration. It’s rare that a programme lives up to the hype. This did. And the Tom Baker surprise was the perfect ending and a brilliantly kept secret.” Boyd Hilton, HEAT
