For chrissakes, just watch Doctor Who already.
Choire Sicha at The Awl wants you to:
Almost everyone in the English-speaking world has a friend who regularly recruits others to indulge in the wonder that is the television show Doctor Who. This friend is annoying, at best! (Also likely unhygienic.) May I give it a whirl though?
In the rebooted show, the Doctor, as even you likely know, is a fast-talking, friendly and adorable time-traveling alien who tends to pick up women, indulge them in bizarre adventures throughout space and time, after which the duo will teeter on the verge of romantic affair and then he will fling them back to their ordinary lives (for, ostensibly, their own good). This sounds terrible and very silly! Yet Doctor Who is a rare television show in that it runs on equal tracks of high drama, broad comedy, fantasy, and irony.
Craig Ferguson wants you to:
And I want you to, too: The latest incarnation of Doctor Who is a phenomenally smart, phenomenally well-written show about very charming, very attractive people who have incredibly grand, incredibly inventive adventures. It is one of the best shows on television. The new season starts tonight on BBC America.
Do with all this information what you will, but I think you know the right thing to do.
