~ welcome ~
You are viewing Absentia, a fansite about the Eighth Doctor (Doctor Who). From his introduction in 1996 amid Doctor Who's "wilderness years" to his surprise appearance in the 50th anniversary prequel, there are many Eighth Doctor adventures, and yet most DW fans do not know much of him at all. Thus, I have created this site to showcase him.
Who am I, by the way?
(Pun not intended)
I am a fan who discovered the Eighth Doctor 19 years after his first appearance; I was decidedly not a Doctor Who fan before, because none of the Doctors really appealed to me despite years of trying to get into the fandom. Then, I saw the 1996 TV movie, and Eight promptly ran off with my heart. ♥

I'm currently hard at work on an article comparing the Eighth Doctor to other similar fictional characters, but I've also gone back and fixed up What Being an Eighth Doctor Fan is Like so that it reads easier and funnier!
