Ah, Doctor Who :)

I am (somewhat) new to the DW universe, but I am a strong Whovian:
I watched my first episode little over a year ago, and that was "Rose", the first episode of Season 1 of New Who. I watched maybe four episodes total before my interest started to wear. But a friend of mine showed me Blink and guided me through some good "hook" episodes. I have indeed been hooked :P

I've seen all of Eccleston's season (who I have since come to appreciate), most of Tennant's tenure, and I am up-to-date with Smith -minus his first Christmas episode- as well as the Eighth Doc's TV movie. I really want to watch more Classic.

I had never seen a single episode, but I started watching the 2005 season and I'm completely hooked now. I'm about halfway through it. So wonderful.

Last night's episode kicked all kinds of hind quarters! First time I nearly cried over a Dalek... and the fact the Ponds are leaving contributed to my tearing up.

I just started watching Series 1, it's really weird.. I didn't think I'd like it, but I'm about halfway through and I've already stopped noticing how cheesy the production is.

The story is so good the rest doesn't matter. They get more $ as the series progress and production value increases.

I HATE NOT SEEING THE NEW EPISODES. I'm going to get to a point where I stop caring about streaming it illegally. I'm a British citizen, it's my right to watch Doctor Who.

That's basically what happened to me. Once you get to Tennant, all of your resistance will fade forever.

Lettie, you need to tell your school to get some decent cable. We not only watched it when it aired but its also on demand. Why doesn't BBC America stream it? lame.

This whole thing made me giggle tremendously.

Fortunately once I got obsessed with Doctor Who it seems like all my Whovian friends just came out of the woodwork. I think what really happened is that they've all been dropping hints all along and I just ignored them because I had no idea what they were referring to. Anywho, we were having a discussion about the whole production value thing, and it's weird... like I barely notice it. :? I dunno... I just went from the end of Season 6 to beginning of 1 and barely skipped a beat, except obviously noting to myself that I was going backwards in the Doctor's timeline. And he has a different face and personality. But yeah. Apparently prop and special effects quality aren't a huge deal to me. Except the super super ridiculous ones. Like these:

I want to at least vaguely familiarize myself with each of the Doctors, so I'm watching some of the 1960s episodes now. Often really boring, but sometimes enjoyable! The first Doctor really grew on me.

I've been watching the New Who and I got to say it's awesome! At the start of season 2 I was so used to Ecclesston that the switch really bugged me. Now Tennat is the Doctor in my mind. I've only seen one episode with Smith as the Doctor (the Snowmen episode) and I'm not sure if I like him as much as Tennat. Anyone else notice that since 2005 there have been three Doctors, and Smith is the eleventh, meaning either he will be on for a long time, or Doctor Who will end in the next few years. Well that or he somehow restarts his regeneration cycle.

Time Lords get 12 regenerations, so that means there will be 13 Doctors. Some people are even speculating that since the number of regenerations was actually a Time Lord rule, and there's no Time Lords left to enforce it, he might not actually have a limit anymore (or it just won't end anytime soon). Rassilon was able to give or take away regens so does that mean it was just a High Council form of population control?

SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER











I have heard some theories that when River used her regens to save The Doctor she gave him all of her regenerations. So if she dies, she's dead and he has another 10 added on to his total.
