So what the heck even is this show about?
You've probably heard that it's a show for nerds. THIS IS A LIE. Mostly. BUT WHO CARES? Nerdiness is great. Own those duct taped glasses! Rock those Lord of the Ring posters! Flash those Harry Potter books for the world to see!
This show follows the adventures of the marvelous Doctor as he traverses all of time and space defending the Earth from aliens - although he himself is one - and other disasters - a surprising number of which occur in Cardiff.
People may tell you to skip nine. DO NOT LISTEN. SKIPPING NINE IS A LARGE MISTAKE, ONE THAT WILL RESULT IN TEARS, BLOOD, PAIN, AND PROBABLE DEATH.
All in all, watch this show. If you don't, you'll be the one missing out!

The Doctor is a Time Lord, an extraterrestrial from the planet Gallifrey, who travels in a time machine called the TARDIS.
Sometimes he is accompanied by companions who have chosen to travel with him for a variety of reasons.
Although he physically resembles a human, as a Time Lord his physiology is different. Once a Time Lord suffers a mortal injury, illness, or old age, he uses the ability to regenerate.
"I told you; The Doctor."
"Yeah, but, Doctor who?"
"Just The Doctor."
The Doctor. The Doctor is a Timelord from Gallifrey, which in the recent series has been revealed to be destroyed. He usually saves the Earth/The Universe/Civilisation as we know it on a day-to-day basis. Generally talks alot, though it varies from regeneration to regeneration. Often, no, almost always has a compainion (A friend - not that way either.) travelling with him. Want to know more? Wiki has a large article on it which can explain it better than i can. Just look up 'Doctor who'
2. The Doctor saved the universe again. Man, and I thought i was accoplished.
Whovian: 10nth used to say "Allons-y", which meant "Let's go" in French.
Mom: Forget about the Doctor Who stuff.
Whovian: NO, NOT LIKE DONNA NOBLE.
He's the most fantastically good man throughout all of time and space, and yet he gets so little.
At the end of the day, he's just an oft lonely man who travels around the universe in a little blue box. And that's what makes him so brilliant.
"I'm the Doctor."
"The Doctor? Doctor who?"
Friend: I know. It's all you talk about.
Whovian: Because... Doctor Who... SO GOOD.
