I’m sorta impressed and sorta horrified at how many results turn up when you plug “Lego Doctor Who” into YouTube’s search field…
What’s horrifying about Lego Doctor Who? The Lego hobby is an incredibly vibrant artistic pursuit utilizing an unusual medium to astonishing ends, including a very active community of filmmakers (predominantly working with stop-motion animation). I’d encourage you to check out the “AFOL” (Adult Fan Of Lego) scene some time- in fact, you just missed Nathan Sawaya’s exhibition in New York City (http://www.brickartist.com/).
There’s a lot to be impressed by (and hopefully not as much to be horrified by as you think) in the Lego builder community.
