Out of all the TV shows I've watched, this has to be my absolutely favorite show of all time. It's got everything a sci-fi lover could ask for. It's got time and space travel, aliens, monsters, witty dialogue, and memorable characters. Honestly, there's not much more you can ask from a show.
Psychic paper and one it's tricks.
The 11th Doctor's Sonic Screwdriver.
Good. Now I can move on
with my life.
Sorry Star Trek.
Think of the amount of time that would take too.
See what I did there? No? Okay...
"Doctor" or "The Doctor" (Currently played by Matt Smith) is the Doctor as of his 11th regeneration. Unlike his previous regeneration (played by David Tennant), he's is much more happy-go-lucky. Of course, being an alien from a race that has existed for as long as it has, he's also extremely intelligent. He's best described as energetic and sometimes eccentric, but also very fierce and serious when the time calls for it. As the saying goes, you never forget your first Doctor and for me, it's very true. Matt Smith is it.
I like bow ties. Bow ties are cool.
Amelia "Amy" Pond (played by Karen Gillan) is one of two of the Doctor's current companions. She's a Scotchish red head and can best be described as sassy as well as a very loving person especially to her husband, Rory even though it may not appear that way all the time.
I wish I had a hot Scotish redhead for a wife...
Rory Williams (Played by Arthur Darvill) is the second companion of the Doctors. As stated earlier, he was the boyfriend and eventually the husband of Amy Pond. He's kind of an awkward guy, but he's funny because of it. He's also smarter than he first appears.
Surprisingly badass as well.
While there are many other characters, aliens, monsters and stuff, I believe that is it best if you watch the show for yourself. Since the show is the way it is, there are a lot of things I left out because it would literally spoil entire season if I even made a hint at these things. It's these events and characters that really engross a viewer into this show. As it stands right now, the 7th series is going start being aired sometime in August so I highly recommend you start watching now. All the episodes are on Netflix instant*.
*Please note that the series finale of the 4th series is separated from the main Doctor Who queue and is called "Doctor Who: The End of Time" on Netflix.
