I also enjoyed Cracked.com's
"primer" on Doctor Who, though it is unfairly hard on Eccleston.
Eccleston? It was unfairly hard on ALL of the actors. It's written in a personal and vindictive style. Whenever anyone questions the article, she immediately comes back with a giant bitch slap lobbied directly at the poster.
If I was unfamiliar with Doctor Who and read that article, I wouldn't even give the show a chance.
Read her profile and then her responses in the comment section. She's less interested in being funny with Doctor Who, and more interested in convincing herself that she is sexually irresistible in some form. She was also pretty inaccurate in many places, and honestly sounds like any other emo-tween who came into the show crushing over Tennant and did some peripheral Wikipedia research...
