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.
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...
