I had a general knowledge of Doctor Who from friends and well…just being on the internet. Last year I decided to live blog watching it for the first time. I started a tumblr New Who for You Too and through watching the show I laughed, cried, and wrote over 4,000 posts about Doctor Who. My first Doctor was Nine but I also love Ten and Eleven. I think I blew up my followers with the week and half of posts about The Stolen Earth and Journey’s End and as an un-expected bonus, I went to London for the 50th anniversary!
It was a pretty incredible 6 months for going from New to Who to full on Whovian!
The premiere of series 8 is going to bring a lot of new Whovians and we can barely contain our excitement. Their introduction to the show is going to be the Twelfth Doctor with Clara as his companion, which is pretty crazy to think about considering where some of us started watching. We all got into Doctor Who in different ways, and all ways are good, so it might be nice for us to remember the one that started it all!
For today’s #NewToWho post we’d like to reach back into the depths of our memories and talk about where it all began.
What year was it? What day of the week, what time of day? Okay, maybe not that specific, but tell us what series (or season!) was airing when you started watching! What grade were you in, what state of mind? Was there a complex and possibly hilarious series of events that led to your induction into Whovian-ism? We want to know!
And since this week is all about helping new Whovians, let’s also think about some of the things we learned when we first started watching that we’d want to tell a new fan. Post your throwback tales and advice in the #NewToWho tag and we’ll reminisce alongside you all day by reblogging some of your stories.
Q:Hey gal! I know it's old news already,but remember that episode in which we saw the Weeping Angels move? (flesh and stones) . You said you didn't understand why we saw them moving.Earlier in that episode they say that the angels can move through frames. When we saw them moving,that was a "breaking the fourth wall" moment. We were watching them,so they could only move through frames. We basically saved Amy. Hope i helped!
I saw something similar about this before. The reason they didn’t move was because of the audience! Thanks!!
Haha…in the office and heard someone’s phone ring.
It was the Doctor Who theme.
We are everywhere!
