I agree with KATBEAN31 - start with the Christopher Eccleston season. I've watched Dr. Who since I was about 5, but my husband hadn't watched any. He doesn't know the history of some of the characters right away like I do, but the episodes do a good job of catching people up.

Do you get netflix? You can instantly stream the most recent 4 seasons (the new Dr. Who) on Netflix. Season 5 is not on netflix yet that I know of. I would start with Season 1 of the new one, beginning in 2005, because they do a decent job giving enough background to have an idea who the Doctor is and what he does, without having to chase down all the old ones. It is a super fun show!!

Hey,
Since I don't own a TV I watch Doctor Who online, at www.watch-doctor-who-online.com/.
My recommendation would start watching the new series with Billie Piper and Christopher Eccleston, which started in 2005. I haven't watched any episodes from the original series either, so don't worry about being lost or anything.
I hope this helps!

Hey howdy there!

I've got a major question for fans. I've never seen "Doctor Who", maybe seen pieces but i had no clue what the heck was going on or what I was watching til later, so no, never seen a whole episode.

I got curious about it after watching "Sherlock" and finding out the creators were the same for Doctor Who (Gatiss and Moffat are geniuses--love Sherlock like mad). My question is this: one, where and when on t.v. are episodes of Doctor Who (I live in the states and don't have BBC anything, so nothing doing there)? The other question is, where would you recommend I start watching? I mean, if i got dvds, where would you recommend I start, or can i just watch re-runs and get it okay?

major question, since i've heard Doctor Who's been on about 20 years by now--where the hell does a newbie start? it seems like so much fun to watch, so i wanna do it right (and i'm broke right now, so no renting in my near future, let alone buying)
