Actually, most of my Dr. Who is accessed via Netflix. I've just exhausted all of the new Who that's available there. There is only a smattering of Classic Who.

Re: Where do I start?

As for the classic series on Netflix, "City of Death" (#14 on the Netflix collection list) would probably be the most enjoyable to a modern viewer. It also happens to be my favorite! It was written (or heavily re-written) by Douglas Adams around the same time that he did Hitchhiker's Guide (so the dialogue is fantastic) and features the most famous of the classic Doctors, Tom Baker. And a bunch of it was shot on location in Paris, so it doesn't feel as cheap as the classic series sometimes did. Oh, and the bad guy is played by Julian Glover of Indian Jones and the Last Crusade fame! Anyways, you can't go wrong with that one.

Also, #7 & #8 are both pretty good and feature Tom Baker's Doctor with Sarah Jane.

Bow ties are cool.

Re: Where do I start?

I've just looked back at my earlier post, and now I'm wondering what the Hell "weating" means!

I assumed it was a typo, and you actually meant "weeding", bow ties, so, I figured that meant you were pulling out/cutting the loose threads on your bow ties

Bow ties are cool.
Rainbow scarfs are cool too.

Re: Where do I start?

Today for my school's spirit day we're having Dress Like Your Favorite TV Character. Naturally, I've got my bow tie, jacket and sonic screwdriver, and the students are calling me Doctor. I guess it's a shame none of them actually understand. Too bad I can't speak with an English accent. Oh well, I guess this makes it a good day.

We had our "autograph day" for the 5th graders. Whenever they'd ask me to sign their autograph books, I'd write some quote from Dr. Who. Usually just "Bow ties are cool," or "Geronimo!"

It just dawned on me how Dr. Who must be just that much more fun to people with obsessive personalities!

Maybe I missed it somewhere, but is there a chronology of River Song and the Doctor's meetings told by River's point of view?

Alex Kingston narrated one for the final Doctor Who Confidential. Not sure about online.
