Hiding under a rock – Me and Doctor Who

I have a confession to make.  I’ve only watched a handful of Doctor Who episodes in my life and I don’t even remember which doctor it was.  Watching was a bit of an accident as well.  I really liked the show that came on before and there were times where I was too lazy to turn off the TV and go to bed.

Yes. I’m a Red Dwarfer.

Oh yeah.

Oh yeah.

I’ve watched all the seasons and even follow Robert Llewellyn, the guy who played Kryten the mechanoid, on Twitter. Turns out he really likes hybrid and electric cars, who knew? I will be a very happy camper when the mysterious season 11, that has been rumored to be in production, is available in the US.

It seems that I can’t call myself a speculative fiction writer without having a working knowledge of the good Doctor. That means I have some catching up to do and will need some advice. It’s time to come out from the rock I’ve been hiding under.

First – is there a season I should start at, or is it recommended to start at the beginning?

Second – is there a preferred snack that pairs well with a marathon session?

Let me know in the comments!


Help me out, this is the Doctor I remember. What number is he?
