If you want my first impression of The Name Of The Doctor, here it is.
I noticed a ton of people starting/asking about Classic Who after Series 7’s finale aired, so I figured I’d put something together to help the newbies out! Reblog to share the retro sci-fi love.

I love this so much. With all my heart, really I do.
And I’ll also add that I LOVE giving recommendations, and I have a lot of serials so if you want me to stream some for you I will definitely do that (if I have the time…I will probably make the time).
No seriously, I love talking about this, AMA.
I think the most important take-away from this awesome post is that you can jump into the series on pretty much any story, because back in the day, no one had access to the older episodes. DVDs weren’t a thing. Reruns didn’t really exist. The only way you could experience stories which aired before you started watching was to pick up the novels.
Classic Doctor Who was designed so that anyone could start watching at any time during its run and still not be completely confused. The Doctor is an alien with a time machine; he travels with other people and they have adventures together. That’s all you really need to know.

Hey, do you mind if I tell you a story, one you might not have heard? All the elements in your body were forged many, many millions of years ago in the heart of a faraway star that exploded and died. that explosion scattered those elements across the desolations of deep space. After so, so many millions of years, these elements came together to form new stars and new planets. And on and on it went. The elements came together and burst apart, forming shoes and ships and sealing wax, and cabbages and kings. Until eventually they came together to make you. You are unique in the universe. There is only one Merry Galel. And there will never be another. Getting rid of that existence isn’t a sacrifice. It is a waste.– Doctor Who (via jmkitsune) Via My Own Personal Lonesome Road
