TODAY I MADE A VIDEO. WOW ON A ROLL. LOOK AT ME ROLLING. DOWN A HILL.
If you’re interested in venturing into the world of Doctor Who….I have some advice. (do it).
(it’s late but technically it’s still Whovian Wednesday)
This is some great advice for anyone who is #NewtoWHO to start watching.
And if you are new to Doctor Who, HELLO. Welcome! May we direct you to check out the #NewtoWHO tag if you’d like? This is going to be fun.
I’m now a Whovian
Welcome and congrats on being #NewToWho!
There’s a lot of stuff to look forward to and we hope you have fun being a part of the fandom!
the-oklakansan asked: So I've recently started watching doctor who and I must say its really good. Even though I've started with 9 I'm really upset about Matt smith. He was the biggest reason I started watching it in the first place.
Oh that’s brilliant news! If you pace yourself, you can have several months before you even get to Matt’s seasons!
Besides, we’re so jealous that you get to experience every one of our favorite episodes for the first time!
I KNOW I SHOuLD HAVE DONE THIS A LOT MoRE EARLIER, I’ve been watching it for a while now and I simply am in love with it. I need to follow more whovian blogs!
Welcome to the fandom and congrats on being #NewToWho!
Classmate was having some struggs identifying which Doctor she’d watched so I made her a chart
arthur-thehorse asked: To the person who has never watched doctor who and wants to start; If you're planning on starting with the Classic Who, start from the first season, which starts with the very first doctor (beware, some of the episodes are missing, and or are difficult to find) but if you're planing to start with New Who, I suggest you start with the first season, which has the Ninth Doctor (New Who is all on Netflix). Good luck :)
Thanks for the #NewtoWHO advice.
portady asked: If I have never seen Doctor Who, EVER, which season should I begin my journey on?
Firstly, let us be the first to say open our big squishy arms to say WELCOME. Congratulations on being #NewtoWHO!
Suggestions on which season to start with?
Highlights of my day:
- sitting next to a non-fan (who was there with his friend and their tiny sons who are all fans) who was nonetheless genuinely interested in learning about the show and the fandom and kept asking me things
- the aforementioned sons (dressed as Ten and Six) apparently loving my costume but being too shy to say something
- getting all the trivia titlecards correct and impressing the non-fan next to me
- being impressed myself because that guy’s kid (the one dressed as Six) actually was getting most of them right too
- some guy leaning in and saying “NICE ADRIC SHIRT!” in an oddly conspiratorial tone as he walked up the stairs next to my seat
- delicious macarons from Cako. This has nothing to do with Doctor Who, I just wanted to mention how delicious they were.
- missing my stop on the train ride home because I was too busy tweeting about Doctor Who
tenth doctor’s regeneration
Do the thing to this video, too!
Remember, shh! We didn’t send you there!
There’s a group of apparently new Whovians watching The Eleventh Hour in the student center, laughing and gasping at all the right moments. I’m so happy for new Whovians!!
We love new Whovians too!
Speaking of being #New to WHO, we use that tag here at Doctor Who Tumblr to meet new Doctor Who fans. This weekend during the 50th Anniversary, there will be lots of people who are #New to WHO, so let’s welcome them into our stumpy, oleaginous arms with big, warm hugs and toothy grins.
(Sometimes we use #NewtoWHO - it depends on the day. On The Day of the Doctor, we will use both.)
languageoftheforest asked: To reply to the person asking about what episodes to show someone that is new to Doctor Who, I recently introduced someone to it. I chose to show him Blink, Midnight, and Vincent and The Doctor. I think those are good episodes to give them a taste of what Doctor Who is. Then once you have them hooked you can go through the whole series with them hehe.
Some good starting point advice for someone who will be watching Doctor Who for the first time in preparation for the 50th!
hiheelshighhope asked: I'm taking someone with me to The Day of the Doctor showing who has never seen an episode. What episodes would you recommend for someone to see to get up to speed?
Any suggestions of how to prepare for the Doctor Who 50th if someone is #New to Who?
So I finally started watching the Doctor Who series last night and I AM IN LOVE WITH THE DOCTOR.
accidentally joining fandoms
We saw a bunch of posts by folks who felt compelled to join the fandom because of everything that went down today. To them we say: welcome. We promise to be there to help you up when you reach the top of the escalator.
