So after many years of gentle and not so gentle prodding I have finally started watching Doctor Who.  In the past I have seen snippets of the new series, and generally walked away muttering “…alright …that was odd…don’t see much point in that.” However my friends BatMatt and Doc kept suggesting I try it (much the same way we kept suggesting Rich try watching Firefly…) and since I share a lot of tastes in
common when it comes to TV shows and comics a few months ago I relented and let Doc know that I had come to terms with fact that someday I would eventually ended up watching some Doctor Who but needed to know where to start.


Fast forward to two weeks ago when my father had me open a Netflix account so we could figure out why Netflix streaming wasn’t working for him (no streaming outside the 50 states and DC…you lose out if you live in a Commonwealth of the US it turns out…bummer).  Since I had started the clock on my 2 week trial I figured I might as well take advantage of it once we were back in Rochester.


So early last week I started out watching Season 1 of the New Doctor Who series, starring Christopher Eccleston as the Doctor. The first 13 episodes are available via Netflix streaming, and I have watched 12.


If you haven’t watched the series yet…you might as well stop reading unless you want to be spoiled as to how I reacted…

When he makes his official first appearance as the Doctor, he'll be less than 4 months younger than William Hartnell was when the show premiered. When his first episode airs, he may well be older than Hartnell was.

That's what google images is for...

Some are not well-practiced in the art of google fu.

Slightly less contemporary...

 

 

Even less contemporary

 

 

Actually, a scowling Scottish Cavalier would be quite a marvelous departure for the Doctor.

 

He was lead singer of Dreamboys, whose drummer was Craig Ferguson.

Is that some kind of code?  :-)

Heh, no.

My thoughts exactly!

On the off chance that you're not familiar with him, Ferguson is a little Scotsman who has a talk show that's on very late at night on CBS. He's a huge Doctor Who fan, having had a number of the program's stars on the show  - Smith, Gillan and Kingston, that I know of - over the years.  I suspect he may be better known in the US than he is in the rest of the Anglosphere.

Thank you toall.
