So how were all of you guys introduced to Doctor Who?
When was the first time you heard of it? When did you start watching? What was your initial reaction? How confused were you at first? :)
I listened to Chameleon Circuit while i was writing a paper for school, and i watched Alex Day (Nerimon) and Charlieissocoollike's videos, and they kept on talking about it, so i thought i would try to watch it.
I'm a fan of charlie and he's a fan og dr.Whooligan, I like sci-fi and David Tennant is is kind of good looking so I thought I'd give it a try. I spent pretty much my whole Christmasbreak watching the six series of the new doctor who, and I can barely wait for he seventh.
wow, and i thought i caught up quickly
my best friend introduced me and i've been hooked ever since. oh my gosh the suspense and the waiting is killing me!!!!!
I saw a commercial for it at my grandma's house and was interested. My buddy Jesse officially got me into it, and now I'm completely and totally bonkers for it
wow, i don't know if this implies that you really wanted to watch or if the show really wanted you to watch...
I started in ninth grade. I had been ordered to watch it by several of my nerd friends, and I did. It was (obviously) awesome and I (naturally) loved it. I wasn't really confused at all, unless the Doctor was mentioning some crazy math science no-human-is-even-supposed-to-understand-this thing. I considered the show quite impressive from the first time that I watched it.
Well, I have two times when you could say I was introduced to Doctor Who. The first time, I entered my sisters room, and her TV just happened to display the episode that most of us know by the name of 'Evolution of the Daleks.' That was a completely accidental introduction, and at that time I merely continued on living, being utterly confused by a seemingly normal alien, who just happened to have penises protruding from his head.. THAT WAS THE FIRST, AND ACCIDENTAL TIME. The second time, I was incredibly skeptical about watching it, but a fellow Nerdfighter of mine, Danja, wouldn't let up and pushed me towards the Doctor Who fandom; and it so happens that the day she pushed me the furthest, I was incredibly bored, and without anything to do. So I did the logical thing. I hopped onto a website and watched the very first episode of Doctor Who 2005... At that time, I could not be more surprised and judgmental. I thought the graphics were terrible, and the CGI, was poopie, and the show had an extremely limited budget. BUT SOMETHING FROM THAT VERY FIRST EPISODE PULLED ON A HEARTSTRING AND I ENDED UP SITTING AT MY COMPUTER TILL 4 AM WATCHING SEASON 1. I love it now, and my life revolves around it.
Ha, that's awesome! Very good story, much more interesting than mine. :)
I was first introduced to Doctor Who in the Fall of 2007. A friend of mine had the first the seasons on DVD, and showed me the second episode, as well as a few select episodes from season 2 and 3, including the season finales. My initial reaction to the show was how epic it was for a BBC sci-fi show, seeing as, in the second episode, the world burns. After that, I was definitely interested, but with a lack of cable and a rotten internet connection at the time, it was difficult to continue watching the show. Fast forward to about two years ago, I acquire a Netflix account and proceed to watch all four seasons plus the specials in under a week. From this point on, I am a Whovian, and watch all the new episodes as they come out.
has anyone been sharing their stories on twitter?
My Dad was a classic DW fan and we noticed that there was a new DW series on UKTV. I can't remember if it was the ninth or tenth doctor but I loved it. Dad doesn't like it as much as I do but now I'm watching the Slyvester McCoy series, I'm a DWCA member and I have a few friends that are just as crazy as me. My last artwork will actually be based on Blink ^_^
