We also LOve Doctor Who here, and have to download it each week to watch. the girls even dressed as the weeping angels a couple of years ago for halloween! They do sometimes get scared but that's why they love it. Luckily there have been no long term effects.
They have also become interested in history because of it and have learned a lot. Including how to shut up and pay attention, so they can attempt to work out what in the universe is going on!
They also get to see me cry quite often... i cried during the Van Gogh episode because it was just SOOOO lovely when they took him to the gallery... and that got them interested in Van Gogh, as well as how depression can effect anyone- even geniuses, and we should help each other and not give up hope. I also cried last week when we found out who River Song is, and obviously when David Tennent left ;)
In fact i am now wondering if my comedic blubbering isn't the perfect antidote to the fear that is induced earlier during each episode. Maybe you should give that a go...
