    Getting into Doctor Who

    Post by Marino. on Fri Jan 04, 2013 9:08 pm

    This may seem strange to some People, but i never watched Doctor Who .

    I read about him in multiple crossover Fan Fictions and just think hes a fun Character .
    I kind of know how the Doctor works and the series seems kind of trashy but i would like to give it a Chance .

    Just one Problem . Where do i start ? lol!

    Seriously?!?

    That's pretty shocking! :shock:

    As for where to start, I'd say Season 1 Episode 1 is a good bet. lol!

    Trashy? Doctor Who is the pride of the british television industry (in my opinion, one of my favourite shows around right now), and you should give it a shot. It's a really enjoyable series as long as you don't mind it being slightly kiddy, its meant to be a 6-7 o clock program, accesible for all ages, though in newer series it's matured up a bit.

    A-a-a-a-anyways. Here's a link: http://www.tv-links.eu/tv-shows/Doctor-Who--2005-_221/

    To be honest I dunno if that'll work for you, your governments a bit of a **** when it comes down to streaming, and the dvds of the bbc are notoriously expensive...

    Anyway, if you get links that work, it's a great series to watch, i recommend it to anyone.

    I mean trashy as in unintentionally funny .

    For example i saw this special effect where a really funny looking Bee creature would fly to the Doktor who pointed his Sonic screwdriver at it while backing up making some fearful expressions .

    It looked really awkward thats all i can say silly

    And yeah, it seems my country is indeed a Btch when it comes to Doctor Who...

    Just seduce Chancellor Merkel, then you'll have all the Brit TV access you could dream of.

    I don't see why everyone is like, it's so bad it's good. It is a brilliantly crafted television series. I got into it when David Tennant was the Doctor and the show is just... awesome.

    Plus lately the plots have been getting more complex and mind boggly, making you scream MOFFAAAAAATTTT at the end of every series/episode.

    Ahhhh, I have no arguements really, you have your opinion and I have mine. It's just on British TV right now there's not much on. It's full of reality shows, Friends, Real Housewives of... etc etc. So maybe you may have a different range of shows but to me, Doctor Who is worth the licence fee. (A charge we Brits pay for having a TV, it funds the BBC which makes Doctor Who and Sherlock and all that good stuff)

    Btw if you can, get into Sherlock, there are 6(?) episodes, each are 1.5 hours long, 3 per series. It'll give you a taste of what the 11th Doctor's storylines will be like.

    Doctor who isn't really meant to be a cold, hard hitting drama, or a comedy.

    It's a unique show that is sci-fi, with family elements, light heartedness, the odd bit of psychological thriller moments and suspense, along with a slight horror vibe. It's very much a mixed bag, and the only show that can both not take itself seriously and at times be quite heavy on you that i've really seen. Most tv is very much you know what you're getting with each episode, doctor who mixes it up.

    Its kinda that reason why its the most successful sci fi tv series ever, and the longest running tv show ever.

    I can see what Serious means .

    I have seen how "The Blood Family" ended (very intriguing) and i have seen some of the Jokes for example when the 11th Doctor and his Assistent would continously run down some stairs and through an Office just for the Assistent to stop to catch breath while the Doctor continues to run and eventually passes her again silly

    I was just glad at that point, i got really fed up of david tennant, he got really stale after the 2nd series with him and I just got bored of him. Matt Smith was what brought me back, and i'm glad I came back to it now its progressing as a show.

    If anyone said anything other than :Cristopher ecleson (the dude who plays the 1st doctor of the new series) they're wrong. The episode title is Rose.

    If you like the new stuff, then go back and watch the old stuff later, its easier to appreciate that way.

    I cannot believe that i have missed out on such a great Series !

    This Show has everything . Humor, Interesting Stories and Characters and even though the Special Effects were more of the "eeh?" side they fulfill their task .

    And i only watched 3 Episodes so far silly . Only wish it had subtiles since i have to rewind multiple times to understand what theyre saying

    No subtitles?

    That's surprising. You'd think such a syndicated show would even have multiple dubs, never mind subtitles. Shrug
