What with the circles of podcast listening I do, avoiding Doctor Who talk is neigh impossible. I don't think I'm going to sit down and watch the series. I'm the kind of jerk who would start with episode one from the beginning and crunch all the way through. Life's too short. But I did find the original first episode and gave it a watch. The teeth. Ouch. But besides that, it was quite fascinating. It's easy to see how it developed such fandom, and the idea of years and years of characters and history and world building is just incredibly tickling.
