Doctor Who

I've decided to take up the ambitious task of familiarizing myself with Doctor Who. All of it. In order. Beginning from the beginning. I have several reasons for doing this, but the two primary reasons are that I've never seen an episode from any incarnation of this show ever and that I need something to utterly consume my mind.

Now, it's pretty rare for me not to have seen even a smidge of a given sci-fi show, especially one which is so popular. Before September, I could have said the same thing about Stargate. Both shows are popular, and after watching all of Stargate SG-1 and then Atlantis in order in one multi-week sprint, I've begun to suspect their popularity is well deserved.

The Stargate sprint helped me through some nasty personally emotional weeks, and I'm hoping nearly thirty years worth of Doctor Who and then Torchwood can do the same.

Yes, it's escapism. I'm ok with that.

Besides, what kind of self-respecting geek would I be if I didn't have any familiarity with one of the pillars of sci-fi television?
