  1. How did you start watching Doctor Who?

    Which season did you start with, and in which consequence did you watch all the seasons?

    I start with a random episode from the 6th season, liked it, and started watching the 5th season from the beginning. Then I caught up on the 6th season. When I reached the then-latest episode, I started watching the 2nd season, then through to the 4th. At last I watched the 1st season.

    I replicated this sequence when getting my parents into it. I explain it like this: the Matt Smith seasons are really visually appealing, so it's easier to get hooked up.

    I used to watch it a while ago. I watched it with Billie Piper and the Doctor before David Tennant (forgot his name, chris something sdjkfhdfg) and I watched it since then~

    But ever since Catherine Tate joined, i kinda stopped watching then and haven't watched it since.

    Well, I watch a lot of youtube vloggers, and my favourites are charlieissocoollike and nerimon. Both of these are huge fans of Doctor Who and make very many references to the show. I decided to try it out on a whim, just to see what all the fuss was about, and now I am a dedicated Whovian.

    I started with season 1 of the new series with Eccleston, and I'm about to go and watch the old ones soon.

    I was stuck in a apartment for a whole weekend with my best friend, and she had packed the 5th and the 6th season of Doctor Who with her, and I've been addicted ever since! I haven't seen season 1 or 2 yet..

    i only watched david and billie after they left i was like fuck this, and left about a year later checked in and it's pretty good with the new doctor. i guess the main reason why i stopped watching back then is not because i didn't like the new doc but i wasn't ready for the change.... and i had a major crush on david Tennant and i guess i still do... but the innocent child crush turned into an obsession and obsession with a young adult can develop into something worse... and it keeps growing O.OO.

    I started watching with my uncle. I was at his house sleeping over and i think i was like 7 or 8 and i think it was Ecclestone. It was really scary so I stopped. Then when i was like 10 i went over my uncles and there was Tennant and in my beautiful 10 year old brain, i wanted to shag him hard but i was too scared so i stopped and now i am caught up and on going.

    I'm probably one of the few people who stuck around for Tate and Tennant! I started with Billie and Christopher and have never stopped since (the way I describe it . . . it sounds like a drug.)

    I started from an old movie with the DALEKS and a non canon doctor played by Peter cushing.

    I really got into doctor who through the new-who era, watched from the second episode of eccleston's run because I missed the premiere, haven't missed a single doctor who episode since!

    My sister is big on British TV; back when it was starting up again with the 9th doctor she called me over to watch it. Since then I watched (almost) all of the new epsidoes, as well as went back and watched some of Tom Baker's 4th doctor.

    Unfortunately I had my interest in the series completely destroyed for me by over exposure of rabid fandom from a friend I got into it. So. Much. Regret. Because of that I hold a fiery hate in my heart for the 11th, and never finished his first season. I know I shouldn't but... ugh.

    @Elegy: I hated Eleven at first because I was upset over Ten's departure. I eventually got over it though, but I can completely understand your problem. I get so damn annoyed at all these girls who obsess over Ten for no apparent reason besides them finding him attractive. I mean, he's fairly good-looking, but that should be the last thing to think of when justifying your love for him as the Doctor.

    @Decae Actually.. the obsession she had was initially Tennant but moved to Matt Smith. That's where the hate actually spawns from.

    I never really hated the 11th all that much to begin with. I mean, I was sad back when Tennant replaced the 9th because I'd watched it as it was coming out, so I'd known Eccleston for a good year but eventually I moved on. Granted, having a great doctor like Tennant for several seasons leave was depressing, but I knew I'd come to accept it and begin to like Matt Smith. Or I thought I would until lolololfanartlololobsessionlololcosplayloloI'm never gonna fucking shut up everlololspouting jokeslolololquoteslolol It was... painful.

    I was just channel surfing and found a re-run from Christopher Ecclestone's series. The papers and such wouldn't shut the hell up about the new series, so I decided to watch it.

    I've watched all of the new series' episodes since then

    Found the...5th and 6th season I believe (the 11th doctor's seasons starting from the first episode with Matt Smith) on Comcast, and got hooked. Once I was done with the episodes they offered me, I moved on to the first season and have been working my way up. I want to watch the old (original) seasons sometime though.
