I've been watching Doctor Who since I was a wee lad. For new and old fans, it's never been a better time to watch the show. The show has definitely come a long way since its debut way back on November 23, 1963. Sure the show used to have some cheesy 'rubber suit' aliens and corny plots but that was always part of its charm. In 2005, the show saw new life as both the stories and special effects got a serious upgrade.
Despite all the fans that go on and on about how much they love the show, there are still some people that have never watched the show. Even my wife, who has an extremely low tolerance for sci-fi, really enjoyed both Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant as the Doctor. If you are one of those that have never given the show a chance, check out this video that the BBC America has put together to give you a little look at what the Doctor is all about:
After you watch this, click on Newest Video and look for the David Tennant interview with (the awesome) Graham Norton. Hilarious.
