    It's not really unexpected, but the article was only posted today.

    :nah: but I possibly am going to my friend's party the night before which is Doctor Who themed, then I've got a few people coming to mine to watch it under strict instructions that distractions are punishable by death.

    I was very tempted, but I couldn't afford it/justify the cost. If that had been the price for the weekend, then I would be going, but for one day...? Sadly, no :sad:

    Start from the start of the reboot. I know some people say you can skip the 9th Doctor but I really don't think you can.

    No you can't. Anyone who says otherwise is wrong



    Anyway there is a doctor who exhibit round the corner from my house from the 23rd November til January. Woo media museum :woo:

    Skipping 9th Doctor would make the Rose/10th Doctor relationship very odd.

    I'd recommend skipping the Rose/10th Doctor relationship

    Start from Patrick Troughton's Tomb of the Cybermen, because Classic Who is brilliant and don't listen to anyone who says otherwise :yep: Also if you go with Classic Who first, the lows of 'New Who' won't be quite so awful unless you do selective watching which would probably be better so you just see the important/decent serials. God help you when you get to the Colin Baker/McCoy era.

    You could always start from the very beginning but they'll be a lot of gaps with serials being lost and it takes a while for it to get into the swing of things what with getting the character of the Doctor down. If you do want to go with New Who then start with 'Rose', it's a good ep and while the second one isn't brilliant, the third in the series (The Unquiet Dead) is one of my all time favourites so hopefully that will be enough to stop you from dropping it :3 Just prepare for some times where you think 'why I am watching this?' (feel free to skip all episodes with the slitheens) but it's more than worth it.

    10 missing episodes have been found and remastered! Already available to download on iTunes...

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-24467337

    Just went on to iTunes to see how much they are. Both stories are £9.99, but rather annoyingly, on the US iTunes, they're $9.99, which makes them a few quid cheaper.

    I am a Doctor Who Virgin (I think was would be a better word). Since there are so many seasons to watch, I decided to start watching from Season 5 and the first episode is entitled "The Eleventh Hour". Did I make a good decision?

    It'll work, but I'd highly recommend going back to season 1 and watching from there onwards...

    I presume you are referring to season 1 of the 2005 series, where the first episode was entitled "Rose".

    Yes, I'm talking start of New Who :yep: just helps you get a bit more background and will make things like the 50th anniversary episode make a wee bit more sense etc.
