I figured since there is a My Little Pony thread, we should have one about a grown up show! Let me know what you guys think about Peter Capaldi as the 12th, and the 50th anniversary episode! Allons-y!

Can we have a poll, as well? Favorite Doctor and favorite companion. The correct answers are, of course, Tennant's Doctor and Captain Jack Harkness.

As I've said before, I am withholding judgement, because every regeneration is difficult. But he just looks as if he might be a return to old, grumpy Doctors of yore. I worry about how he will mesh with Clara and River. I like our previous hip, young Doctors.

Oh, and I am excited about the 50th, but I wish Capt Jack were going to be in it.

I like Rose. But Martha, in many ways, was cooler.

I've never watched Doctor Who but I know alot of my friends have gotten into it.
So where would you start b/c when I looked it up on IMDB I see one show from 1963 and then a movie in 1996 and a newer version that started in 2005?

Please stand clear of the doors.

2005

Christopher Eccleston as the Doctor

Billie Piper as Rose

and (for a few far too brief episodes) John Barrowman as Captain Jack Harkness

The Doctor, Rose, and Captain Jack

That said, Tennant is the best Doctor. He starts in Series 2. But it won't make a lot of sense, if you don't start at the beginning of the reboot.

All of the new episodes (starting in 2005) are available for free on Amazon Prime and Netflix.

1963: The very first Doctor. Those classic episodes are interesting, once you are really into the show, but I wouldn't start with them.

1996: Just a movie BBC made. There would be no context.

2005: They rebooted Doctor Who and knowing that many viewers would be new, wrote the early scripts for people who know nothing about the show. You as the audience learn about the Doctor at the same time as Rose (the companion) does. Also the new Doctors have been hipper than many of the older Doctors.

Edit: Don't know about Netflix, but I just discovered that Amazon Prime does make you pay for last season (11th Doctor and Clara).

Seconded, start with the 2005 series. then maybe go back, you're going to have to accept the cheesiness of some of the effects.

Yes, horror, fright, gore! We need more EVIL!

I'm a huge fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
I love cheesy. Winking

Thanks y'all. We will try to find it on Netflix or something and give it a try.

As I said previously, Tennant and Cap Jack are the correct answers.

Which villain is your favorite?

Hey! Be careful! "That which holds the image of an angel becomes itself an angel."

I was actually watching the Matt Smith/River Song/Amy Pond Angel episodes last night. I love Angel Bob!

I can never decide which are the worst: Weeping Angels, Cybermen, or the Silence.
