Doctor Who (2005- )

This review is difficult.  I want to tell people about the pure awesome that is Doctor Who, but how?  Obviously people love and watch the show, the original or Classic Doctor Who as it is known now started in 1963 and ended in 1989.  There was a T.V. movie in 1997 (starting Eric Roberts as the Master), then finally a reboot/continuation in 2005.  Despite this, I run into people all the time who have never heard or watched a show that has lasted 50 years.  That's right, this show is having its 50 year Anniversary Special in November, then we have the Christmas Special a month later that introduces us to the Twelfth Doctor.  So instead of doing a normal review where I try to give the good and bad, I am taking a page from the Doctor and just going ramble about the show and why I watch it.
