Where should I start? Netflix has the series on instant watch starting with the Christopher Eccleston series and onward. They might have some of the older ones for instant watch but the new stuff is what's featured right now.
I'm thinking of starting now, so hopefully some Doctor Who fans are online.
Not to muddy the waters, but there are surely some episodes that show off just how great Tennant was without dragging you knee deep into continuity. ("Blink", mentioned above, is a great ep, but intentionally Doctor-light, so it doesn't much show off Tennant's Doctor.) Lemme think ...
Well, Eccleston only had a short run as the Doctor, so it's not a big commitment to start with his episodes.
'Fear Her' has a number of things going for it. The setting in the London 2012 olympics, a key national (world) event such a short time n the future - and even shorter now - makes it somewhat special.
It's practically mandatory that any horror stories with children in them - and many without - have to have a children's nursery rhyme or song that becomes increasingly more menacing as the story continues. In 'Fear Her' it was Kookaburra Sits In The Old Gum Tree. This is great simply because it is an Australian song about an Australian bird whose life is gay.
The song was in the news recently because another very famous, iconic Australian song was found to have lifted some riffs from it and it is still under copyright.
It's a sad piece of television that has nothing of interest or merit to it...
I've heard Kookaburra. My mom used to sing it to us when we were little. I'll have to check that episode out, Figs.
I started the first episode of the Matt Smith series this afternoon but I fell asleep because I played golf this morning and was tired. I liked what I saw. I'm watching the rest of it now.
I finished the episode: The Eleventh Hour. I liked it. It was fast paced and fun.
