Nice

Such a sweet season :D

Not that great

While I'm generally a great fan of "Doctor Who" this series, and in particular Christopher Eccleston's Doctor and Billie Piper's Rose leave much to be desired. It's worth watching this series if only so you have the background for later series and Doctor incarnations.

Pretty good

It's a really addictive show, and it's really exciting, too. There are some kind of boring parts where it gets too sappy to be nice, but the themes of the episodes are really cool, and the different monsters and things are so so cool.

Addictive and wonderful

I fell in love with this show from the very beginning. If you are ready for your next addiction, check this out!
This is a good place to start if you never watched the original. You will be starting with the "9th doctor".

I don't understand?

I know a lot of people who swear by Doctor Who but... I watched this DVD and don't get it yet. It's entertaining, sure, but also kind of creepy and terrifying. I guess I should have known... I normally go for funny TV shows. It's a decent show, but it isn't a 'laugh all the way through' kind of show. The problem might also be that I started at a bad place? I don't know. Anyway.

I found the Doctor's background intriguing, but there wasn't quite enough revealed to catch me.

We'll see if I watch any more...

Start at the beginning

This is the beginning of the Doctor Who reboot, and a great place to start. While season one may not be the best of the seasons of "new Who" it is still a fun watch. Lots of adventure, some emotional stories, and good chemistry between the main actors.

Great Place to Start


When I look back at Season 1 of Doctor Who, I realize that most of my favorite episodes are in other seasons. When I stop to remember my initial reaction though, I wanted to throttle someone for not having strapped me to a chair to watch it earlier. Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper have great chemistry together, and their hijinx are wonderful. You can easily drop into the Whoniverse starting here.

Great

Great restart for the series. It really reinvented the series and made it for the next generation of fans.

Amazing

This really is the most fantastic show ever. The doctor is hilarious and he's so smart. I think that David Tennant is really one of the best doctors.

A good starting point

For those wishing to start watching Doctor Who, this is one of the starting points I would suggest, as it is the beginning of the series "reboot." (Another would be the start of the Matt Smith/eleventh Doctor era.) Chris Eccleston's leather-jacket wearing Doctor was quite a departure for those of us who were fans before the reboot, and a general breath of fresh air. If you've seen the Matt Smith episodes up to the present, this is a good starting point for getting acquainted with the older material, before delving into the classic series (Doctors 1-7) or the US made-for-TV movie (Eighth Doctor).
