Doctor Who Beginers Guide.

We were asked about what Doctor Who is so we decided to make a beginners guide. We have collected different info from the Internet to make this.

Doctor Who holds the distinction of being the longest-running science fiction television series in the history of television. It premiered on the BBC in 1963 and ran continuously, through seven stars and 26 years before being cancelled at the end of 1989. In 2005, the BBC revived the series, and it’s been climbing in pop culture status ever since. Chances are you’ve heard someone mention it in conversation at least once, and you might have even flipped past a rerun one night, but didn’t stop to watch. Rest assured, though, if you’re a fan of science fiction storytelling at all, and you’re not watching this show, there’s a gaping hole in your world.
OK, so it’s essential viewing. It’s cool. It’s legendary. It’s something you really should be watching, but all this brings up a rather obvious question: What is Doctor Who?
There’s no easy way to explain this, so we’ll just have to take a deep breath. Ready?
Doctor Who follows the exploits of a time traveling alien who has no name to speak of other than “The Doctor.” The Doctor has been played by 11 different actors over the course of nearly five decades (currently it’s Matt Smith), and each change in casting is written into the story as part of the character’s alien biological makeup. He’s an alien, you see, so if he’s mortally wounded he can simply regenerate into another incarnation. The Doctor’s purpose in life is to travel in his time machine, the TARDIS (Time and Relative Dimension In Space), a blue police call box from the 50s that’s much bigger on the inside and can go anywhere in time and/or space. He often travels with companions. They have adventures, fight enemies and promote general mayhem. It’s wonderful.

Were to get started. If you can you would want to watch the first season of the revived the series you buy them on DVD or watch them on Netflix instant but if that is not an option you can start by watching season 5 and 6 which is coming on BBC America the next few day here is a link to the BBC America schedule Doctor Who schedule  make sure to chose the correct time zone and if you have a DVR (digital video recorder) or a TiVo you would want to record all the episodes coming on to catch up on whats happening.

If you have any qustions please ask.
