Doctor Who
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.

My very first introduction to Doctor Who came with this season and this Doctor; while 10th and 11th are my favorites, I'll always remember 9 as my first Doctor. And while I can't say I'm a fan of Rose, the show itself is very enjoyable! Highly recommend it to anyone interested in a time-traveling, two-hearted, sonic-screwdriver wielding, somewhat psychic alien!

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.

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

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.

It's important to note that this first series is the revival of the entire show in 2005. The premise is that the Ninth Doctor (who does a fantastic portrayal) is coming back from a "Time War" where his whole species is obliterated.

So saying it's not funny, or that it's too dark is exactly what it is. Some parts of the show aren't meant to be funny or light hearted because the character of the Doctor has come back from this species-ending war, and that's where Billie Piper (Rose) comes in. She helps to essentially heal the Doctor. She changes his personality.

With that, it sets up nearly the entire story line of series 1 to 4. I think what I'm trying to say is that skipping series 1 means missing the damage and suffering that we see in the Ninth Doctor and a relationship that develops with his companions in further series'.

I liked this doctor. True, he's not as funny as the rest of them, but in my opinion, a good start for the new series. I can't see why some (many) people don't seem to like them, beside the fact that the doctors after him are funnier, and are more like the originals.

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!"

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
