->''"Mickey has become a sort of ''[[Series/TheLoneGunmen Lone Gunmen]]'' character -- a perfectly ordinary guy who's become a ''Series/DoctorWho'' fan, only he's done it within the story instead of outside of it. This is only possible in this new iteration of the show where it's about its own success -- now that ''Series/DoctorWho'' is a thing in the culture it has ordinary people who are fans, and so Mickey has become a meta joke about that. (Likewise, Jackie becomes the person who still really doesn't get this ''Doctor Who'' thing, even though all the kids are into it.)"''
