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.
