Whether you like it or not, being featured on the cover of ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY is a big deal. Being featured on the cover of ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY when you are a low rated show on a "foreign channel" is phenomenal.
Congratulations to everyone at DOCTOR WHO ... let's see if this is the first step from CULT to PRIMETIME.
How do you know when a TV show has become a cult phenomenon? When its (often comparatively small) ratings are eclipsed by the wild ardor of its fans. Take the case of the British science fiction show Doctor Who, whose current lead, Matt Smith, is this week’s cover star.
P.S. As a fan of Doctor Who since the '60s, I make no apologies for making a big deal out of this.
