Oh, and David Tennant is a beast!
My friend is now a Whovian. I think I did a job well done
I just started watching Doctor Who. I started when i got home from school. 5 hours later and ive watched 5 episodes without moving off my couch except for food and water. Goodbye social life.
Today the Anglophenia Blog has a video history of the Cybermen, from their first appearance in 1966 up through their reappearance in the RTD series.
Click through for the vids (with a special appearance by Captain Jack.)
Me: Just watch one episode of Doctor Who. For me.
Fine I will watch one episode, but just one episode!
Me: Well what did you think?
Me: What’s the matter?
Boyfriend: You can’t…you can’t just leave me hanging like that now I need to know what happens to Amy. YOU PICKED THIS EPISODE ON PURPOSE!
Boyfriend: Play the next episode. We’re recording this show on the DVR right?
Boyfriend: I guess I’ll have to start watching it.
Me: I’m so glad we’re both Whovians now! TODAY IS THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE!
Yes thats crazy I know since I’m on tumblr and probably one of a very very very small minority that does not yet watch this show.
Starting with the new series on netflix and I’m watching “Rose.”
So far so good we shall see!
Welcome. We’re glad you have joined us.
(p.s. We are all working on a New to Doctor Who Guide over here.)
I mean…I’ve never seen it. Ever. My best friend is in love with it. People I follow/used to follow love it.
I understand there are a billion episodes. If I were to watch it, where should I start from?
This way to her ask box…
Update: she’s set now. Thx.
So today in French class we got up and talked about ourselves and one of the prompts was favorite TV show. Of course I said Doctor Who. One guy shouted, “YEAHHHH” and I yelled “YEAHHHH” back and my French teacher yelled “OUIIIIII” to correct us. I’m pissed at myself I didn’t say “ALLONS-YYYYYYY”…
C’est magnifique! We still need your help, Whovians, over here on the New to Who guide, s’il vous plaît.
So I leave my room for a minute and I came back to find that my night table was open and my sonic screwdriver was missing. I go in the living room to find Arianna (my niece) playing with it. Cutest Whovian ever.
Outstanding! Remember that we need your help with the New to Who guide, for all those wondering about Sonic Screwdrivers and such written by all the Whovians, big and small.
With a new half season and so many new followers, we wanted to create a 'Beginner's Guide To Doctor Who' with a catch: we want it to be made of posts by you.
We figure that collectively we can put together a better guide to Doctor Who than if we did it alone. So we set up a new page: doctorwho.tumblr.com/new-to-who
Now we need to populate it with links to posts that would be useful to new fans.
So what would you put into a guide for newvians? A Character Guide? A FAQ?
And thank you.
New to Who? Need a refresher of the first half of Series 6? Clicky.
yourheadfeelslikehome asked: Hello! I want to get a friend into Doctor Who because I think he'll LOVE it. Now my favorite doctor is number 10, so what would be a good episode with David Tennant for a new whovian? I'd prefer an episode with some wit too, as I want the person to get a good idea of the doctor.
So wait. THIS is “The Doctor”?:
But then everyone LOVES this guy.. who’s also the doctor?:
And ok.. this chick, she’s with the doctor? aw they look so cute:
But then I started the actual show and I was like, WAIT who’s her.. when does this Amy girl come in?
So wait WHAT. HE’S THE DOCTOR? I’M SO CONFUSED:
Oh I like him. Why are there different doctors? I LOVE ROSE AND DOCTOR:
And then he regenerated and I was like SO THAT’S HOW IT HAPPENS he’s still the same guy, he just looks different:
And then it was like “OH MA DOKTAH AND MA ROES! I LAB DEM”:
And then he regenerates again and NEVER really mentions Rose. New doctor, new TARDIS, new companions, even new title sequence and the theme song is a bit different and I was like:
BUT NOW I love everyone and everything:
