Been a huge fan since the late 70's.
Can't wait till the the 50th anniversary episode and the Christmas episode.
Sucks that Matt's gone after that.I was beginning to like him.
My wife prefers Torchwood.
Fantastic! A doctor who thread.
A friend living over in England had been trying to get me to watch for a while. I finally started them back in early June with the 9th (10th now? grr John Hurt) Doctor and finished up with them by mid July. Just absolutely great. The first half of season 1 was a little rocky, and a lot of season 6 and 7 was a little to "Timey whimey" for me, but over all they've been great.
Tennat would definitely be "my doctor" thus far. I like Matt Smiths, and Eccelson's was great but needed more time...but it was during Tennants run that I really began to understand the series and get completely wrapped up in it.
Due to my friend though, I'm massively disappointed that Moffat isn't embracing Who past with the 50th. Writing out the 8th Doctor's part in the time war basically, not including any of the living actors (the 8th at least being clearly still young enough to play his doctor well), it's just kind of annoying.
I used to be a great fan, I have on VCR tape some of the second doctors episodes, all of John Pertwee's third doctor, Tom Bakers Fourth Doctor, I really like him. All the episodes of Peter Davidson's fifth doctor, Colin Bakers sixth doctor and 3 or 4 episodes the the seventh doctor Sylvester McCoy. Then it was taken of PBS here in the states and I haven't seen an episode since then. But I do go back and watch these olds time and time again. I especially like the episodes like the FIVE DOCTORs and the Three Doctors which puts more than one together.
I suppose one of these days I will need to transfer the tapes to DVD's if I want to keep them. But there is no hurry, I bought 5 VCRs last year just in case.
I got lucky and got invited to a 3D screening of the 50th anniversary show with a friend who writes Who articles for New Yorker magazine (online) and Vulture. Not only was it a delightfully well done show, but the audience was filled with families and their small children. I've never seen so many kids in bow ties and they all had sonic screwdrivers too! He decided to dedicate one of his blog posts to the subject that Dr. Who can make the world a better place.Well, I missed the 50th and it hadn't shown up on Demand when last I checked.
