Doctor Whos

Trying to Understand Doctor Who

Doctor Whos

Wanted to know why everyone in the geek world is so into this show. I just finished the first season of Doctor Who which at first reminded meĀ of the Sliders TV show, although it’s been a long time since I’ve seen that show. Doctor Who is entertaining and brings together a lot of different sci-fi ideas including the episode “Father’s Day” which reminded me a lot of Stephen King’s “The Langoliers”. I’m sure I don’t even catch half of the references, but I know some sci-fi and I love space. The graphics are cheap, but that’s not completely unusual for a TV show that was made 10+ years ago. Also they did a great job of setting up the second season, although I have to wonder if they can keep up the suspense. Still not sure if I understand everyone’s obsession, but the show is fun and entertaining. Plus like most geeky shows they seem to be slowly getting around to explaining everything people might question in the show.
