Why are fan sites not valid sources? Surely they are the sites most likely to be accurate, to them the slightest error would be apparent and loving the show are not going to make lies about it. However, non-fan sites are in my view to be less accurate (as evidenced by the frequent and possibly somewhat minor mistake of such sites by their referring to the Doctor as Doctor Who) and less likely to write about Doctor Who, especially older or spin-off stuff, thus we would be limiting our knowledge and pool of resources considerably by ignoring them.

- From WP:SPS: Anyone can create a personal web page or publish their own book, and also claim to be an expert in a certain field. For that reason, self-published media, such as books, patents, newsletters, personal websites, open wikis, personal or group blogs (as distinguished from newsblogs, above), Internet forum postings, and tweets, are largely not acceptable as sources.

Hello DQ. I hope that you are having a pleasant summer. I wanted to let you know that I removed this thread. This person has been going on about this stuff for months. Several of us have been tracking them and have noted the unhealthy nature of their obsession. This articles edit history and talk page history will show the extent of the problem. Ponyo is aware of the situation as you can see at this thread User talk:Ponyo#Problem is back. If you see their posts again please feel free to remove them and report them to Ponyo. Thanks for your time and only two months until new Dr Who episodes! Woot Woot. MarnetteD|Talk 21:37, 15 July 2015 (UTC)
