I love Doctor Who also.  I use to watch and read it as a kid way back when.  Unfortunately I lost track of it when they changed the time slot on me lol.  Now with the new episodes on Sci-Fi Channel. I get to watch again.  I just wish I got the BBC channel so I could watch Torchwood. 

Maybe one day I will actually get to see the original episodes with the First Doctor lol.

Anthony, you need Netflix!  That's what got me hooked on Dr. Who and we plan on watching Torchwood next.  I could watch British TV all day, and Netflix is great for that.

I have put a ton of Dr. Who books on my WL, although I doubt I will ever get any from here.  The prices aren't bad at Amazon....most are around $10-11.  My b'day is coming up soon, and I think I'm going to get some of the books and the first two seasons of the show with my b'day cash.

My 6 year old loves the Dr. too, although some of the episodes are too scary for him to watch.  He can tell you all about the Daleks and the Cybermen, lol!

Actually I've got a ton of these sitting in a box, in excellent condition the last time I peeked in there. Nothing recent, but if you're interested in anything Doctor One - Five ... maybe a Six ... I could probably help you out. PM me if you want.

I know this is an old thread, but, is there a list of Dr Who books somewhere?

I have a ton in ebook format, but no idea how they relate to each other. So I've been afraid to dive in, cause I just have no idea where to start.

I grew up watching Tom Baker at his nuttiest on PBS back in the 80s.  There's so much to love about the entire concept and history of the series.  Something about the idea of an odd and intelligent alien fumbling his way through interactions with humanity, completely awestricken and enamored of what he saw...I experienced what can only be called grief at the passing of Tennant's incarnation, and can't particularly stand the idea of Matt Smith playing the 11th Doctor.  I've resolved to give the new guy at least three episodes before I pass judgement.  Regardless of the show's developments, the door to our "hang out" room still has the word TARDIS scrawled on it, and always will.

Derrick, this page from Wikipedia leads to a handful of lists of Dr. Who literature.

Talk about growing up with Doctor Who, I watched the first shows many (too many!!) years ago, the original black and white William Hartnell ones.  The show was for children and I remember my brothers playing at being/fighting Daleks for hours.  Maybe we knew it was too far-fetched and hokey to be scary.  It was a Saturday teatime ritual, in front of the TV with Doctor Who - Woo-oo oo.  Woo-oo. Da da da da da dada.  Dadum dadum dadum dadum etc . . . .   Many of the very early shows are gone, never to be seen again, tapes wiped out, 'cos who knew the thing would turn out the way it did.  Too bad, I loved the first Doctor, my own grandfather was very much like him in looks and mannerisms, and smarts too.

Bless you all for your support of all things British.  Cheers, Margaret
