    Am I the ONLY LGKer who just watched an epic Doctor Who? Oh, it was so good! So, so good. Only thing missing was a cameo from Peter Davison and Sarah Sutton, but great story, fun, and made sense for once!

    Start with the "New Series" reboot in 2005. http://www.amazon.com/Rose/dp/B003LZ5B7S The first 3 episodes are a bit slow, but the series takes off from there.

    At some point, if you like it, you will want to watch the old episodes from 1963-the 90's. These older episodes require a vivid imagination because they are very low budget. But there are endless references to them in the "new series". I have been hooked since 1980. My 76 year old mother, and my 16 year old daughter, as well as my husband, are also huge fans. My screen name is a character from the 1980's series.
    WINNERS!

    I just discovered I have BBC America in HD now!

    They seem to be running episodes all week, but according to my guide they aired originally in 2010 and 2011. This is different from the 2005 reboot you speak of?

    I have my dvr set to tape a 2 hour show at 4:00 today that it says original air date of today..

    Quick synopsis?

    Well, today's show is the 50th anniversary special. It is excellent, but you will probably be a bit lost. The reason the show has been able to last for 50 years is because the main character (The Doctor) can "regenerate" into a completely new person, but still be the same character, so the main character can keep going. He flies through time and space in a Police Call Box from 1960's London. Long story to that part of it. In this episode today, several versions of "The Doctor" meet up to save the universe. They normally can't interact due to space/time laws, etc. But there have been several other specials over the years where several of the actors who have played The Doctor have appeared in special episodes together. The Doctor always has at least one companion, who represents us, although sometimes they are not from Earth (Nyssa was a princess from the planet Traaken). The Doctor is a Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey, which figures quite prominently in today's episode. He always saves the Earth or other planets from aliens or other certain destruction. Just don't overthink it. The person who introduced me to Doctor Who said this: "At first you are going to think it is the dumbest thing you have ever seen, especially because it looks like it was filmed in someone's basement. (old episodes, remember) But I promise if you just watch to the end of one episode you will be hooked." And he was right. The special effects in today's episode are amazing, though.

    Oh, and yes, the 2010 and 2011 episodes are part of the "reboot". There was a period of about 8 years when the world was "Who-less" in the late 90s-early 2000's until the 2005 restart. The guy who is the current Doctor is the 3rd actor to play him since then. And we will be getting a new actor in January.
    WINNERS!

    Saw it. Enjoyed the hell out of it. Made an celebratory English breakfast just before it and enjoyed that, too!

    Looking forward to Christmas!
