Re: The Doctor Who primer

well, as you can see, I have updated the Primer. so all that really needs to be done is update it slightly for the most recent info on the specials and then stick it in a new thread.

Re: The Doctor Who primer

See, I wouldn't even do that. I'd just write a base-primer for what the show is about, with pictorial references. Then, if someone else wanted to add what's been happening by season, that's cool too. But, all that's really needed is the main core idea of what the show is about...

Turbo and I were going to write new one...I think...a year ago, but then...things happened. Oops.

it's about a bloke in a phone box flying around in time and space, usually with a fit bird in tow, fighting aliens. and sometimes he changes his appearance.

there y'go.

Re: The Doctor Who primer

Actually, I just got hooked on the show. Netflix has Dr. Who Second Season (David Tennant) in instant watch, and I've watched the first 5 episodes. I already have five observational comments:

1) The show has great wit and humor, tied in with an occasional startling revelation.
2) Billy Piper is smoking hot.
3) The Tenth Doctor (David Tennant) is fantastic. He carries the mantle of a Time Lord well.
4) Lots of action, adventure, lots of twists, it's a very fun show.
5) Did I mention Billy Piper was smoking hot?

Oh, and for the past 7 hours or so, the theme song has been on a constant loop in my head. Make it stop!

J, did you go right into the Tenth Doctor's episodes or have you watched any of Christopher Eccleston's season?

I've only watched the ones with David Tennant, so Tenth Doctor only.

Re: The Doctor Who primer

Welcome to the fold, J.Allen! As a fellow Who enthusiast, I would enthusiastically advise you to watch "Season One" from 2005, starring Christopher Eccleston as the 9th incarnation of The Doctor. It will give you a better idea of, not only how versatile Doctor Who is, but how he meets Rose Tyler (as you say, the smoking hot Billie Piper).

Enjoy!

Aww, you should watch the Ninth Doctor as well, I think you'd like those stories. I know that's also available for Instant Streaming on Netflix.

Besides, you get another 13 episodes of Billie Piper. I personally liked her more with the Ninth than with the Tenth.
