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 was doing my german homework in my English teacher's classroom, unaware that she hosted Dr. Who club on Thursdays. Naturally, I found that Doctor Who was much more interesting than german. The episode was the one with the Slitheen, and I thought it was pretty good, so I kept watching. Now, three years later, I'm totally obsessed (the obsession started about two to three years ago).
I heard about if from Charlie McDonnell I think, but I'm not quite sure. The first ever episode I saw was The Lodger and I was pretty much a gonner from then on because I thought it was a completely perfect show and I had a whole summer to watch the rest of the episodes and become the fully obsessed Whovian I am today:)
Charlie McDonall made his video explaining what Doctor Who is, and being the ultimate Charlie fan I am I had to see what all the hullabaloo was about. I sought out for BBCA and then watched my very first episode, Gridlock, with my sister. I've been the biggest Whovian in America since. Thank you Charlie, I've no idea how I made it so long without the Doctor in my life. :D
I LOVE Charlie! I saw his Doctor Who video too, but I didn't check Doctor Who out for a few more years. I did happen to see part of an episode when I was babysitting for a family who had cable, but I thought Amy and Rory were children!
I first heard of it at my Aunts who is a Whovian. I watched about half an episode at her house, episode in question Aliens of London. Then a year later my best friend at the time was getting me into all sorts of shows/books/movies and Doctor Who was one. I then got hooked and now I am pretty obsessed and collecting the DVDs. I nearly have all the new series DVDs.
My first reaction was that this was awesome but then my mother made me leave and I was sad.
I was not confused except for the TARDIS being bigger on the inside. Now thats logical to me.
My friend got a British boyfriend who got her interested in the show.. she showed me clips from Blink and I was sold...
When I first started watching it, I was really young so I have no idea how I started watching it. All I know is that I've been watching it for about as long as I can remember.
I remember when I was around 5 or 6 the show used to come on t.v with Tom Baker and his scarf. The music scared the crap out of me, as did the robots. I only started watching the newer series last year. I simply wanted to see it-knowing that it would be right down my alley of things that I would enjoy.
My dad started watching on PBS when I was a kid. My mom laughed at how bad the sets were, I did too at first. Then I was hooked. I grew up watching episodes of Tom Baker, one of them I remember being particularly frightening. I look forward to finding that one again. After a while I stopped watching, then found it again on PBS when I was in high school. When the new series started, I tried watching it, but just didn't get into it. Around the time Matt Smith took over, my friends admitted they were into the show, so I gave it another try. I'm so glad I did! I went back and have seen all of the new series now, and impatiently waiting for the next one!
I was spending a few days at my friends house 2 years ago and we watched all of nine, ten and the first episode of 11 in around 3 days :)
I started because a very good friend said to watch it and I forgot untill it was halfway through the episode (it was only a couple of months ago) and watched half an episode I thought it was a tad odd but I watched the next couple of episodes then blink came on and I was hooked. (I was very confused)
