If you don’t know who Doctor Who is, you’re in for a sordid history of one of the longest-running TV shows. The first running, the BBC series ran for over 25 years with seven men (plus one spinoff movie with the 8th doctor) sharing the role the Doctor during that time.

About 1.5 years ago, the BBC picked up the series again and filmed a new searson of Doctor Who with updated characters, plots, and special effects. The TV series was a smash hit in the UK, with some of the highest ratings of the year.
Fans on this side of the pond have been anxiously awaiting the opportunity to see the new Doctor Who. Tonight, the Sci Fi cable channel will be airing the new Doctor Who series at 8:00.
I am *so* there. I’ve been a fan of the series since I was in elementary school.
