Doctor Who - My First Time



I just watched the first episode of the new season of Dr. Who. I'm not sure how they count seasons, but this is the first season with the blonde lady doctor. Prior to this episode I had only watched the Dr. Who episode with Maisie Williams and the dude who played guitar. Apparently there were several with Maisie, but I only watched the first.

I liked this season opener quite a bit but I'm not sure what all the fuss is about. It seemed like a perfectly serviceable scifi show but I know quite a few people who hold it in the highest regard. I liked it enough that I'll probably watch a few more episodes. Maybe it grows on you. I'm sure I missed a ton of calls backs and in jokes.

The thing about taking on a new show is that I have so many great things to read, plus tons of other shows, that it's hard for something new to get into my regular rotation.

I figured there'd be internet drama because, you know, first lady doctor and all of that, but you don't get a sense of that if you ignore the internet and just watch the show. Searching for the image to put above this post I, of course, saw lots of links to the various dramalamas. It's important to avoid the lamas, I think, if you really want to enjoy a show.

  1. Glad you tried it! Not that I'm trying turn you into a Whovian, but I suggest watching "Blink" if you can. It's from David Tennant's run as the Doctor, even though he's barely in the episode. You'll understand if you watch it.
