Doctor Who reinvents itself into a hip new hit for a new generation. Christopher Eccleston's Doctor is wise and funny, cheeky and brave. An alien and a loner, his detached logic gives him a vital edge when the world's in danger.

Doctor Who --- DVD --- BBC. Televsion series with a cult following of dedicated fans on both sides of the Atlantic. Christopher Eccleston played the Doctor, briefly, for one season only, in 2005 as the ninth Doctor. There is something for everyone in these episodes: the Doctor (of course); the Tardis (also of course); one lonely Darlek (as usual, earstraininly difficult to understand - you either love "em or hate 'em); assorted nasty aliens (again, of course) as usual, bent on the destruction of a) humans, b) planet Earth, c) the destruction of the entire universe (all right, maybe not the ENTIRE universe, and d) all of the above; and (of course (again)) Rose (portrayed by Billie Piper, Eccelston’s comely travelling companion. Some plots are straight forward: stop the badies. Others are a little more ingenious: The Unquiet Dead features Charles Dickens in an episode set in London in 1890. That one’s hard to beat (but beat it will be in “The Fireplace” (but that’s a different time, a different place, a different Doctor). Enjoy these episodes with Doctor Eccelstone: he won’t last long: just one season. The writing is little uneven; by current standards the special effects are a bit clumsy but the Tardis is always great.

Christopher Eccelson is by far my fave Doctor. He was so funny and I cried when he regenerated. I wish he had lasted longer, but he didn't :/ but DONT SKIP THIS! It is so good and you get to know the Doctor a bit. David Tennants really funny though and makes a good Doctor, and Matt Smith is hilarios!

I have to admit that I'm one of those Whovians that skipped series one. But I am wanting to go back and watch them all again, so I will be a good girl and start with series one, instead of with my favorite Who, David Tennant.

I started this series skeptical, but at the recommendation of my friend, I took Doctor Who for a test run... It is very good :) I'm officially a Whovian! While the show is rather low budget, it's still very good.

I Liked This Incarnation. Personally I Think He's The Best Doctor, Shame He Didn't Stay Longer, But At Least Matt Smith Came Along And Took Over. I'm Gonna Hate Peter Capaldi.....

Before I started watching Doctor Who, I heard that a lot of people skipped the first series. They are missing out. Nine was a "simply fantastic" Doctor. This season lays the groundwork for the relationship between Rose and the Doctor (Christopher and Billie's chemistry is amazing). Besides that, the Daleks are introduced to the reboot in this series, as is Captain Jack Harkness. The Bad Wolf motif that is brought up in later series is also huge in this series. This is the series that introduced me to Doctor Who, and I highly recommend it.

peter cushing was the best doctor

Everyone always says skip the first series! DON'T! It's a huge part of the story and lays a lot of ground work. 9 has so much personality! I love him :D

Being new to The Doctor, I quite enjoyed this series. It was light-hearted, quirky, and a nice change from science fiction programs that take themselves too seriously.

One can not skip Series One of the reboot. You'd be missing part of a whole story. One can jump right into the 21st century reboot without prior Who-perience, however. Of course, it is impossible to start at the very beginning, as too many of the early shows were destroyed.
The Ninth Doctor is a great place to start. Once into it the most modern Who, one may then delve into the past, cherry-picking through the highlights and whichever strikes a fancy.

Rose Tyler: Really though, Doctor. Tell me. Who are you?
The Doctor: Do you know like we were saying, about the earth revolving? It's like when you're a kid, the first time they tell you that the world is turning and you just can't quite believe it 'cause everything looks like it's standing still. I can feel it...
[he takes her hand]
The Doctor:
the turn of the earth. The ground beneath our feet is spinning at a thousand miles an hour. The entire planet is hurtling around the sun at sixty seven thousand miles an hour. And I can feel it. We're falling through space, you and me, clinging to the skin of this tiny little world. And, if we let go...
[He releases her hand]
The Doctor: That's who I am. Now forget me, Rose Tyler. Go home.

"Rose! Before I go, I just want to say you were fantastic. Absolutely fantastic. And you know what? So was I!"

Doctor: Fantastic!

Dalek: We have your associate! You will obey or she will be exterminated!

The Doctor: No.

Dalek: Explain yourself!

The Doctor: I said no.

Dalek: What is the meaning of this negative?

The Doctor: It means no.

Dalek: But she will be destroyed!

The Doctor: No! 'Cause this is what I'm going to do: I'm going to rescue her! I'm going to save Rose Tyler from the middle of the Dalek fleet, and then I'm going to save the Earth, and then, just to finish off, I'm going to wipe every last stinking Dalek out of the sky!

Dalek: But you have no weapons! No defences! No plan!

The Doctor: Yeah! And doesn't that scare you to death?

The Doctor: Rose?

Rose: Yes, Doctor?

The Doctor: I'm coming to get you
