There's more to it than that, but I definitely feel like that is a factor. I think Doctor Who having attractive male leads and a certain amount of silliness also helps. You don't see that many other science fictions shows that make people smirk. (the only other ones I can think of on TV are Futurama and Red Dwarf) I rather enjoy the show, and watch it on occasion, but I do think it's a little overblown amongst certain subsets of people.
I know **** all about Top Gear because I have no interest in cars.
Watch me tumble stuff:
re: attractive male leads in Doctor Who... not hugely. Well, that's my opinion, anyway. Decent-looking, but not exactly top-notch. But if certain other fandoms are a thing to go by, a lot of American females on the internet, presumably not even of the age when they should be thinking about these sorts of things, self-irrigate at British men. Even if they're robots.

Eh, the British people I've met over the Internet have been really cool, actually.
Hi, I'm part of the staff on Pokemon Showdown!, if you have any questions or need any help, VM or PM me.
i've always wanted to visit England.
i just, want to travel really. :[
There's actually many wonderful historical things to see if you hit up London.
lmao don't listen to the above person. It's how you make of something. I know that I personally fell in love with France the two times I was there and with Belgium.
Oh, well by all means travel, just don't single out England as the highlight of your trip because you'll leave with nothing but a suitcase full of crappy cheap Union Jack tat and a purse full of nothing but pennies and pigeon crap.
Honestly, you'd have more fun in the desert, I know I would.

well yeah if you put it that way, i'd never recommend anyone traveling here either since i have lived here all my life and find it rather boring. so i think traveling to England, or any country really would be a wonderful experience. England came to mind since my cousins were there this year and said it was a fun time. :]
Yeah, it's probably because London can sometimes be more tourist-friendly than resident-friendly. But then again there are some things which tourists can never seem to get a hold of, like the Underground.
It's really not that difficult once you've made sense of all the lines and connections but I can understand how it might be confusing to someone who has never used it before...

My face when this thread.
I really want senior year to start already.
Hi I am a white male! I am pleased to meet you.
I am automatically racist and privileged. I make more money than you. I cannot grasp the concept of racism nor can I feel its effects because I am white, hence empathy is impossible for fair skinned folks like me. I am a bad person for being White. Shame on me! Thanks for teaching us so much about equality and prejudice, MLK!
