I was born in 1984 so I'm of that generation who really missed-out on "Doctor Who". I had no Doctor to call my own when I grew up, and little knowledge of the series outside of the cult symbols of the Daleks and the TARDIS. (When I was still at senior school we had a Christmas quiz one time and one of the questions was to name any of the actors who had played the Doctor - no one could answer, which proves the point.) But then the new series came along, and I, like many other people, became a convert. I'm a big "Star Wars" fan and I love the "Harry Potter" books as much as the next person, but forget "Revenge of the Sith" and "Half-Blood Prince" - "Doctor Who" was *the* event of 2005, without a doubt.

So, what made it work? Well, it's simple really: well-written stories, excellent casting with some superb actors, special effects better than what's usually seen in any British TV series, and a show that was as much about the characters as it was about the monsters and the spaceships. Though its eccentricity when compared to the likes of "Star Wars" and other sci-fis threw me off to begin with, I soon settled in to the show's wit and charm, and I love its ability to never take itself too seriously, which is the downfall of a lot of modern fantasy stuff. Also, the fact that it was thoroughly entertaining and accessible for both children and adults was a real bonus, especially since so many things - even "Harry Potter" - seem to be getting to that level at the moment where they're too dark for younger audiences to enjoy. How wonderful it is to safely be able to sit back with either young kids or your grandparents and still feel comfortable about watching something together!

No need to go into too much detail - this relaunch of Doctor Who was the best thing to happen to television in years. The original series managed it in 1963 and this new version has managed it in 2005 - it's well-written drama with a warmth, wit and imagination far in excess of any other sci-fi show. There are some rather dull people around who have bemoaned the progress the new series has made, who seem to think that genuine, emotional drama and proper, rounded characters have no place in sci-fi (indeed, some of them have contributed reviews to this site). But anyone who's still got a sense of fun in them, anyone who's after a wonderful ride through time and space, should hop aboard the TARDIS. You'll never regret it!
The DVD extras are great, too - particularly the audio commentaries from clearly enthusiastic cast and crew.

After twenty years on Gallifrey - or in cyberspace (?) - the Doctor returns to Earth with a bang in the shape of the versatile Christopher Eccleston. Whilst it will always be arguable whether he or David Tennant is best suited to the part, there can surely be no doubt that he brought a new lease of life to the show. With his mixture of cocky humour and Time Lord fury, Eccleston portrays a Doctor that is both 'human' and terrifyingly alien. Billy Piper as Rose is the perfect partner, an everyday teenager who goes from London shopgirl to saviour of the world in a mere dozen episodes.
Although, arguably, some of the best Doctor Who episodes of all come in later series, for example, the grand finale of Series 4, this has much to do with how the Doctor Who team evolves and develops over the succeeding years. The writing and the acting of Series 1 is consistently good. 'Dalek', 'Father's Day' and the climax of the series are difficult to beat for sheer passion and excitement in anything which follows.

Over the next week or so I will add to the review disc by disc, must admit until tonight I
haven't watched 'The Doctor' since watching the 1965 Film 'Dr Who and the Daleks'
However for some time now I've been reading well written and interesting reviews that
cover both the 'TV' -Series and many 'Audio' 'Doctor' Stories written by fellow reviewer
'Timelord' frankly I've been wondering what I've not been watching these past years.
'Doctor Who' originally ran on BBC between 1963 - 1989 many fans were disappointed
when they wound it up.............and of course they resurrected it much to the joy of the
faithful in 2005, of course a new following have also emerged
This 5-Disc Box-set (Police Box) First - Series Edition with a booklet is of the Ninth
Doctor played by 'Christpher Eccleston' joined by 'Rose' played by 'Billie Piper'
Episode One - 'Rose'
The Doctor stumbles across 'Rose' who appears to being chased by Tailors Dummies'
in the basement of the store where she works, the Doctor believes the Dummies are
in fact after him, he helps 'Rose' escape.
When the problem is resolved the Doctor invites his new friend to join him as he travels
backwards and forward in time helping to solve problems throughout the 'Universe'
7/10.
Episode Two - 'The End of The World'
The Doctor and Rose gate-crash a party watching the final moments of Earth in 5-Billion
years time.
The guests on-board the Space-Module have gathered from around the Universe to watch
the event.
One of the invited guests have brought metallic spiders onto the vessel to ensure those on
the Ship to perish as the Sun destroys the Earth, the innocents on board are in great danger
things are hotting up.
