Boxing Day Reviews -- Doctor Who

Boxing Day Reviews -- Doctor Who

I am currently on a British television binge and would be remiss if I did not recommend the series, Doctor Who. The long-running program series is over 50 years and has gained a much larger U.S. following over the last decade. Like, Star Trek, Dr. Who relies heavily on science fiction and traditionally begins every season with a Christmas Day special episode.This year, the new season begins on New Year’s Day. So, December 26th is the perfect time to be introduced to a world of sonic screwdrivers, cybermen, and to refresh your memory of the story line before the new season premiere.Many Dr. Who forums and chat rooms insist that viewers start with episode one from 1963, but you don't have to. One of the best things about this series is you can start anywhere. The Doctor and his companions' adventures stand on their own and usually reiterate the history of past years. For extreme science fiction fans, the character lore is interesting and well-worth starting from the be-ginning. For the less committed fan, watching the series sequence is not required.Once the family leaves to head back home and the wrapping paper is in the trash can, start your holiday recovery with Doctor Who.
