Welcome to our next InterWho (Whovian Interview)..
I had the pleasure of interviewing Lorraine Cox, so grab a cup of tea and enjoy the read ...
LC: My name is Lorraine, and I'm a geek mom of 2 little geekling girls! I live on the West Coast of Canada in the BC Lower Mainland, and love it here! I'm within an hour of ocean, mountain or any outdoor activity! As well, I love to cook, which thanks to that a little bit I now have to hit the gym! In addition, I work at YVR International Airport, so I do see some neat people!
BBB: When did you first become a Whovian?
LC: I became a Whovian about 3 years ago when one of my close friends challenged me to watch some New Who and see how it goes. Needless to say, it was addiction at first episode!
BBB: What is your favorite Classic Who and/or New Who episode and why?
LC: I like the special episode Day of the Doctor with 10, 11 and War. It was so well executed and the melding of the classic with new was seamless!
BBB: If you could meet just one Doctor Who cast or crew member, who would it be?
LC: I have met John Barrowman by complete fluke at work! He was checking in at first class and I happened to be working that counter! He is a master of the selfie! I would love to meet David Tennant, because he is hot! Haha! And Billie Piper, as I listened to her music prior to following her into Doctor Who!
*Lorraine has also met famous violinist, Lindsey Stirling!
BBB: Who is your favorite Doctor and why?
LC: 10 is one of my favourites, with 12 coming up fast! I love how they are conflicted, and with 10 he is so torn with his feelings for Rose! 12 is attached to Clara, and he's got angry eyebrows!
BBB: Who is your favorite companion and why?
LC: I loved Rose, and her sass! She was capable, and not completely a damsal in distress! I also liked Captain Jack, because he was cheeky and challanged 10 in ways that needed to be done!
BBB: If you could travel with The Doctor in his TARDIS to any time and/or place, where would you like to go?
LC: I would love to see Monet during the Impressionist period, or go meet with Churchill, one of my historical idols! I mean, the man lived off cigars and brandy, and managed to lead a nation during an important time in history!
BBB: Are you in any other fandoms besides Doctor Who? Such as Torchwood or Sherlock?
LC: I am into Star Wars, Firefly, Sherlock, Arrow... my kids have been raised on a healthy diet of Star Wars and Firefly as well as Doctor Who and Marvel! I love how they each draw you in! I've also gotten hooked on Orphan Black (Tatiana Maslany is AMAZEBALLS! Seriously, 8 clones??). Marvel is also awesome, with my daughter happy to have been Black Widow after seeing Age of Ultron with mommy! Another one that I'm not sure that airs in the US is X-Company. Its a period based drama based on real events and the real Camp X that was a base in Canada for espionage training during WWII and many American spies trained there too!
The R2D2 Star Wars Plane!
BBB: Tell us about your business or hobbies even if it is not related to Doctor Who..
LC: I'm a little funny, I play video games (Elder Scrolls Online, Marvel Heroes, Vindictus), as well as cook and bake. In down time, I hit the gym in order to try to do another Tough Mudder! I also have a green belt in Shotokan Karate, and competed in tournaments for sparring (fighting) and kata (forms, kinda like a solo fight routine.)
BBB: Tell us your favorite product from Blue Box Balm..
LC: I've been hooked on the balms since I first discovered them by fluke on etsy! They are in my purse, backpack and work bag! They are awesome and I plan to buy more!
*Lorraine's favorite lip balms are Tempest, Allons-y! and The Blue Box
***Special! In honor of Lorraine's favorite product (well one of them, anyway!) Blue Box Balm is offering Allons-y for just $2! This special offer ends 3/10, so hurry!
BBB: Can our readers follow you on social sites?
LC: I can be found on Twitter as @KitharaCox, Beme as kitharac, and Snapchat as kitharacox836
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)?
LC: I have a huge Funko Pop collection that is close to 40 figures, with my hubby practically finishing the first release Doctor Who set for me in 1 go at Christmas! I've been to E3 back in 2004 (gaming convention) and plan to try to go to some comicons soon! I also have met Captain Jack as well!
