Doctor Who (2005)
An amazing sci-fi series!
I began watching Doctor Who late in its own progression. By the time I had actually given it a shot, it was already on the 11th Doctor. I remember watching the first season with the 9th Doctor and thinking, "Holy moly, this is cheesy." and I immediately dismissed it. That was my first mistake.
Doctor Who is a series that becomes apparently amazing to you after you connect with a Doctor and Christopher simply wasn't the Doctor I connected with. David's 10th Doctor was the one who made me fall in love with the series. He was sassy, intelligent, empathetic, and at times volatile. And as you continue to watch the series you begin to feel a connection with these characters because you begin to enjoy their adventures. You root for them, you feel a sense of loss as people come and go in the series, and you generally grow to love them.
The series is simply about an alien (alien to us ;p) traveling through time and space in his Tardis (time/space machine). He is a benevolent observer so to speak; but more times than not, he involves himself with the people he encounters. And more times than not, he has a companion. The relationship between the Doctor and the companion is a very important aspect to the show and always rather charming. They fight, they laugh and they get into a lot of trouble, but the series itself becomes truly special as you continue to watch it.
The moments throughout doctor who can make you laugh, cry, angry or whatever else it wishes to draw out of you. And the show has strong enough writers to be able to do that successfully.
But be warned, if you fall in love with Doctor Who, that is the kiss of death. You will become a Whovian. You might even resort to watching the classic black and white episodes just for a fix (;p). The show has always selected its cast smartly and the stories it presents are always well constructed. Some episodes are better than others; but overall, the show is quite an amazing piece of art within its respective genre and I would recommend it to anyone who loves a good heartfelt, fun, intelligent, and adventure driven sci-fi.
