So looks like no one else watches this, but despite that, I'm on the 3rd season, almost to the 4th (there's like 12 episodes per season plus a christmas episode) and So far I love it! Maybe cause I like Sci Fi, maybe cause I like corney, cheesy quirky shows, Maybe bcause this is both with a little hint of romantic tension built in. But I really enjoy watching this show!
It has some weird casting issues that all the BBC shows tend to have, seems like the BBC can't seems to hold on to any actors for long episodes of time....
So we start off with "the doctor", that's it..."The Doctor" is his name..which of course leads to everyone asking "Doctor who?"...The shows has a lot of recurring gags like that.
So The Doctor travels around in time and space in a blue police box (kinda like a telephone box), except for another running gag..."it's bigger on the inside". He meets Rose Tyler (played by Billie Piper who is the girl in "Secret Diary of a call girl"). The Doctor likes to have a companion on his adventures so he takes Rose and off they go to the dismay of her Mum and semi-boyfriend Mickey. There are a lot of reoccurring baddies and lots of funny quips and humor, but mostly sci fi adventure. It's super cheesy, but that's what makes it fun. The special effects aren't bad at all and it has this nice romantic tension between the doctor and Rose (as well as other companions he has later).
The Problem, the BBC keeps changing the cast up. Since I've been watching the Doctor has changed twice and is due to change again when Series Five starts up in 2010. Rose leaves to go due the call cirl show, but comes back for a some episodes here and there. So it's a little hard to watch in the sense that you can get attached to the characters and they leave (like Skins the other BBC show i've been watching)

Doctor Who over the years back from the 60's through today.
There's even a few spin off from the show, one being Torchwood, a type of X-files alien investigation show that is mentioned all the time on Doctor Who. (Torchwood is an anagram for Doctor who). Rose and the Doctor Meet Captain Jack who later becomes the head of Torchwood on the new show.
So I hope my little picture show has intrigued you, this is a really fun show, I'm sure a lot of you will enjoy.
