InterWho - Whovian Leah Heitzke-Mallard

Hello Sweeties!

Welcome to our next InterWho (Whovian Interview)..
I had the pleasure of interviewing Leah, so grab a cup of tea and enjoy the read ... 
BBB: Please introduce yourself to our readers and tell us about yourself…
LHM: Hi!  My name’s Leah.  I live in Oklahoma with my husband, our son (and another one on the way,) our three dogs, and our two cats.  I’m constantly working on some crafty project or another.  Right now the biggie is a Super Mario-themed nursery, as our older son lucked out and got the Doctor Who room!

BBB: When did you first become a Whovian?
LHM: I’m fairly new to the Whoverse.  I guess I stumbled into it around five or so years ago with the 9th Doctor.  I jumped in with both feet and haven’t looked back since.

BBB: What is your favorite Classic Who and/or New Who episode and why?
LHM: I haven’t caught up with the Classic Who, but I think my favorite New Who episode would have to be either Blink or The Girl in the Fireplace.  I think Blink was the first time a television show actually terrified me…I was hooked!  And what can I say about The Girl in the Fireplace, it had it all.  It was emotional, magical, romantic, and of course just the right amount of creepy.

BBB: If you could meet just one Doctor Who cast or crew member, who would it be?
LHM: Hmm, I can only meet one cast or crew member?  It’s a toss-up between David Tennant or Alex Kingston.  I think they both would have fantastic personalities and senses of humor.  I can’t imagine the stories they could tell!

BBB: Who is your favorite Doctor and why?
LHM: My favorite Doctor is Ten, but Twelve is quickly catching up.  Ten is quirky without being overly childish, yet he could turn on the protection and fury when need be.

BBB: Who is your favorite companion and why?
LHM: For me, it’s hard to beat the Ponds as companions.  Amy could definitely hold her own and wasn’t afraid to tell the Doctor exactly what she thought.  I loved her feistiness!  And Rory, I couldn’t help but love his dedication to Amy and to everything and everyone that was important to her.

BBB: If you could travel with The Doctor in his TARDIS to any time and/or place, where would you like to go?
LHM: I think I’d like to go back to the Roaring ‘20s, with maybe some sort of Al Capone/gangster/Prohibition element thrown in.  Fashion and danger, it’s all there.

BBB: Are you in any other fandoms besides Doctor Who? Such as Torchwood or Sherlock?
LHM: I don’t technically belong to any other fandoms per se.  I guess the closest would be The Walking Dead.  I did go to a Con to meet a cast member.  Other than that, I enjoy comic book movies, I love Orphan Black, and I try to keep up with as many horror films as I can.

BBB: Tell us about your business or hobbies even if they are not related to Doctor Who..
LHM: My hobbies, let’s see.  I have to be creating something pretty much all the time, whether it’s sewing, making jewelry, working on graphic design projects, photography, or a variety of other techniques.  I just love trying new ways to make stuff!  I also love films.  I was working on my Master’s thesis in horror films, so that’s still where my interest mainly lies, but I still love most films.

BBB: Tell us your favorite product from Blue Box Balm..
LHM: Right now, my favorite Blue Box product is the Sonic Spritz in Naughty.  The staying power of the spritz is much better than my traditional perfumes.  The scent lingers all day!  I can’t wait to try the other spritzes!

***Special! In honor of Leah's favorite product, Blue Box Balm is offering Sonic Spritz "Naughty" for just $5! This special offer ends 3/14, so hurry!

BBB: Can our readers follow you on social sites? 
LHM: Really, the only social media site I’m on other than Facebook (Leah's Facebook) is Pinterest.  People are more than welcome to follow me on there:  https://www.pinterest.com/lheitzke/

BBB: Is there anything you would like to add before we wrap up this interview (such as conventions you gone to, cast you have met, a collection you have, etc)?
LHM: I love to collect Pops! figures.  Right now my Doctor Who collection is perched on top of my son’s TARDIS armoire.

Big THANK YOU to Leah for participating in our whovian interviews!
