First and foremost: YAAAAAY. Congratulations on being #NewtoWHO.

Send your suggestions for where to start watching Doctor Who to warmhugsnowflakes!
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!
capnjackharknes asked: What qualifies you to be a Whovian? I've been watching Doctor Who on Netflix for about three weeks and I love it, I'm at season 6 now.
Are you a Doctor Who fan and do you want to be a Whovian? Then congratulations you are a Whovian!
That’s the great thing about Who. It doesn’t matter whether you’ve watched for 50 years or 50 minutes, as long as you’re excited about Doctor Who and other Doctor Who fans.
Now lets talk about your favorite episode in Season 6 so far.
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!
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?
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.)
My friend Alegrameeldia is now one of us!
He´s fangirling already hahaha
He´s started with Eleven cause he wants to watch the 50th anniversary with our other whovian friends, but after that he´ll watch Nine and Ten too.
The poor thing is SO heartbroken cause we just watched “Cold Blood" and the end got to him >3<
Now we´re watching “Vincent and the Doctor" and let me tell you, guys, he´s TOTALLY gonna cry in the end…So hooked up already hahaha
I´m so proud…
Then this happened…
Oh, and they did this too.
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.
3 weeks ago I started watching Doctor Who and asdfghjkl and I want to see a lot more Doctor Who on my dash.
Reblog or Like so I can check out your blog!
When I was a kid, I used to run home from school to watch my favorite TV shows. One of them, was this British television program that ran on WTTW, (the PBS station in Chicago). It was a quirky science fiction show about a time traveller called the Doctor. He and his companions whisked around space and time in a blue phone booth looking thing called a Police Box.
The year was 1980. The show was called Doctor Who, and I, was hooked.
The Doctor at that time was played by an actor named Tom Baker, who wore a ridiculously long scarf. I decided I needed a long scarf too. I wrote a letter to some long forgotten address I obtained, and received a knitting pattern for the scarf. I somehow talked my grandmother into making one for me. It was awesome. Even though I was ridiculed mercilessly by my peers for wearing it, my love for the 4th Doctor and his adventures never diminished.
Well, it just so happens that 2013 is the 50th year anniversary of Doctor Who. It’s the longest running science fiction television series in the world.
This is my homage to those days from my youth. Days that were filled with countless hours spent watching Doctor Who and pretending that I too, could travel in space and time.
As the Doctor himself said on Trenzalore, he’s had loads of bodies. That’s because the Doctor is a Time Lord, and Time Lords have the ability to regenerate their bodies when they’re worn out or dying. This means that his old body transforms into a new one, along with a new appearance and persona – a brand new Doctor! But underneath these surface changes, he’s still the same man, the same hero and adventurer.
The series finale gave us glimpses of many Doctors, including the very first - that was the white-haired figure that Clara spoke to at the beginning of the episode. We saw the ‘impossible girl’ interrupt him as he was about to steal a TARDIS, advising him to take the time machine that he still travels in today. The Second Doctor was the man wearing a big, furry coat and the Third was behind the wheel of his trusty old car, Bessie. It’s clear that every Doctor has a distinctive look – tall and handsome, short and impish, old, young… All different! But what’s more exciting is their unique personalities and eccentricities - you can read more by following the links below. You’ll see that the Doctor has always been a hero, but in different ways in different times.
The guide shows the Doctors - click on any of them and you’ll be taken to a page that gives you the low down on that particular Doctor. What they were like, who they travelled with and what caused them to regenerate. If you want to find out more, simply follow the links to their stories and you’ll discover some brilliant clips from their adventures, galleries, fact files and much more. We’ll be adding much more in the coming months, but for now, here’s a guide to the greatest hero of them all: The Doctor….
