Friend: I really want to start watching Doctor Who where should I start?
Me: Well you can start from the beginning where the Doctor kidnaps two teachers and takes them back to the Stone Age
Me: Or when he escapes a hospital and steals a car to stop plastic mannequins
Me: Or when the Doctor becomes an Edwardian amnesiac who goes around kissing people
Me: Or when he blows up a department store to stop plastic mannequins again
Me: Or when he crash-lands into a little girl’s yard and forces her to make him fish custard
Me: Or you could start at the most recent season where he abandons his best friend to be killed by clockwork robots
Me: The Doctor is a great protagonist, by the way. You’ll love him for sure.
