Well, the nice thing about BBC series is most of them run 14 episodes or less. DW tends to have 12 per season. But if you went back to "The Empty Child" and skipped the first few of Season 1, it does give you a decent idea of who the Doctor and his companions are, how they operate and introduces John Barrowman's character. That seems to be the opinion of Professional Geeks who want to get people into the new Doctor.
Thank you! And trust Heyman on his assessment of Doctor Who. It's worthy. Stephen Moffat, who does Sherlock, was a writer on some of the Tenant episodes, and then took over as show-runner for Matt Smith, so there's that same sense of humour/ danger/ message/ flirtation.
The doctor is worth a peek. The first season of the New series was good but it really started picking up stream in the second season and the change to David Tenant as the doctor. Matt Smith in the last couple seasons was great as well. I think the new season is going to be a little dark with another new doctor taking over. That being said, liking sci-fi helps too
I missed the first season when it came out but did start from the beginning when I decided to watch it. My mind decided it was going to be another BBC boring take on Sherlock and then I found out it was being made by the Steven Moffat from Doctor Who and I was hooked before I even saw the first one. I am torn on the three episodes a season thing because i can't get enough, but I know the quality would go down if they did more. I ended up giving a bunch of British shows a chance after watching the series on Netflix. IT Crowd, Wallander, Kingdom ... liked them all.
JBS! I didn't realize there would be comments so right now I'm working through them to thank everyone! Thank YOU so much...it was a thrill and getting all that Cheezlove from friends is the best part...
Wow, I'm editing my own noval. What's yours about? Mine is about a 10 year mage boy who is always trying spells higher levels then his. He has 4 younger siblings. And a cataman guardian Elite who takes care of them all. He's a beautiful humanoid being with catlike ears, a long black tail, golden eyes. Black hair. The boy makes himself different colors. And something else.happens. ;)
