I have been a fan of Doctor Who since the very first season. I grew up in Scotland and it was the first TV show I ever remember seeing.
It took me a while to get used to Matt Smith but I think I have finally accepted him. David Tennant will still be my favorite Doctor though.
I'm enjoying the new season.
Check this out- this is a friend of mine's daughter recapping the last episode. Too cool... and has the added bonus of being absolutely ADORABLE- it was picked up by The Huffington Post (among others) and totally made my day. Enjoy it
You may be surprised to discover I am a Whovian and just finished watching Dinosaurs on a Spaceship. The Doctor is the most intriguing hero in the sci-fi universe. I have seen almost every episode since the first Jon Pertwee and a few of the older ones too. I hope it continues another decade at least. The Doctor is only supposed to last twelve regenerations you know(13 Doctors, this is number 11 ).
I'm an old school Doctor Who fan, who started watching in the 80s when episodes were imported overseas (Peter Davidson years). I love all the early doctors except Colin Baker, but my favorite is probably Jon Pertwee and the delightfully myopic Jo Grant, partly because they had Roger Delgado playing the Master.
It's fun to see how old "lost" episodes keep turning up. Back in the day, they used to toss old tape reels, so an awful lot of the first three Doctors' episodes went missing. I had episode guides and fan guides filling in all the lost episodes (Key to Time, that sort of thing), but every now and then when I check YouTube I'm shocked to find another lost episode seems to have been found. There is thus a lot more of Patrick Troughton and William Hartnell floating around than when I was a Doctor Who fanatic as a teenager!
I also love Tom Baker and Peter Davidson, of course. That was "my" Doctor Who era. Then the train wreck of Colin Baker happened. I hung on and was really, really delighted with Sylvester McCoy and Ace. Sometimes McCoy threatened to unseat Pertwee as my favorite. It was an utter shock when the show was canceled during what I thought was a revival of the series!
I haven't watched enough of the new Doctor Whos to get hooked. What few episodes I've seen are quite good (Eccleson's Doctor plus Rose).
At some point I need to sit down with Netflix and catch up on the new show. Along with Battlestar Galactica, Dragonfly, Stargate, and a whole slew of good SF shows I've missed. I haven't really been a steady watcher of anything since Babylon 5 went off the air.
I love Doctor Who and been difficult for me to figure out when it plays in Canada but yes, both old and new regardless are favorites. The theme song hasn't been changed too much either. I think it's a awesome show.
Only going to be 5 episodes in this series though (way too short)
There will be a Christmas special however, but still not enough compensation for such a ridiculously short series.

This is the Dr. Who I remember. I used to watch it on public television growing up in the 70s. I haven't watched the new version, but I really enjoyed it when I was younger!
Fantastic! thank you UW, (((( hugs ))))) my sons join me. They even grown to love the same shows
I absolutely ADORE Doctor Who! It's one of my favorite shows ever, and I am a complete Whovian- I own a ton of shirts and merchandise and the show just makes me so happy yet breaks my heart at the same time! It's so witty and smart and the actors are brilliant and gorgeous. I'm addicted!
