I MET JOHN SIMM by Girl-on-the-Moon I MET JOHN SIMM by Girl-on-the-Moon
I MET HIM. I was in London, just on vacation, and I happened to catch him in a play (Elling). I saw it, then waited at the backstage door. It was quite simple actually. He was really nice and even used my sonic screwdriver (with SFX!) pen to sign his autograph. This amused him greatly. He was really really nice, but completely weirded out because people in Britain don't bother TV stars. The expression on my face is STUPID (Well, I was talking to JOHN SIMM) and it was really cold.

I saw this picture and thought "OMG YOU MET JOHN SIMM!!!!" and then I noticed a particular something in your bag. Is that by any chance a Tenth Doctor I see in your bag? xD

No. lol
I could tell that he was slightly disappointed that I was only there because I liked him in Doctor Who. I would have told him "no! I love you in everything else too and I like your band and I genuinely enjoyed the play and it's not just DOctor Who you are all-around great" but my brain was not functioning at the time.

Yeah, I can totally understand you. I met him at a con some time ago and SO. MANY. Whovians approached him for an autograph :O
It's such a shame after what he'd been saying on twitter recently... *sighs*

He admitted he's getting fed up of attention from Doctor Who fans. It sorta stepped over the line when Whovians approached him when he was shopping with his family in Tesco. These are some stuff he said:

“[The Whovians] don’t want anything, they’re just full on. It’s great to be into something, but for goodness’ sake, really?”

“I’m not the Master. I’m not that evil Time Lord who rules the galaxy. I’m just in Tesco with my kids. Leave me alone.”

“I do get a lot of Doctor Who. God almighty, I’ll be so happy when that’s gone from my life.”

"To ‘Whovians’ or whoever. It’s a non story. I always try to be polite to fans and am v proud of my time in the show. You can choose to believe what you like but I really meant no offence. I’ve obviously pissed off some bored journalist coz I wouldn’t do an interview."

Oh well that sounds reasonable. He really did seem like a guy who just wants to go home at the end of the day, and I can understand that.
