Well, the title says it all. It's not that's it fresh, or even all that new, but you must remember, it just had it's 44th birthday! Yes, ladies and gents, it's been around since the day after JFK's assassination in 1963. Of course, it was taken off air in 1989, but it's since been reconstituted into one of the most popular shows in Great Britain today.
The Doctor Is a time-and space-traveling Timelord, 903 years of age, who likes to surround himself with pretty girls and danger. He also carries with him a heavy burden of guilt, a sonic screwdriver, and travels in a TARDIS, last one in existence, which resembles a 1960's police box. Does that about sum it up? No, but it will do. just try it out. I promise you won't be dissapointed.
I recommend as a starter episode 'Blink' or the two parter, 'The Empty Child and the Doctor Dances'
