I've only seen Tom Baker as the Doctor.  I can't imagine anyone else.  Tom Baker was a great Puddleglum too!

I also don't care for Star Trek without the original cast.  As a friend of mine said: "Who can believe that by the 25th Century they haven't developed a cure for baldness?"

Being a snob about these things really helps cut down on TV watching :-)

I a big Dr Who fan, but dropped out after Tom Baker, then wasdissapointed with the FOX TV reboot.

Just happend to catch a David Tennant episode a few years back now(He is my fav. after Tom Baker, and who does not forget their first.  LOL), been re-hooked since.

Just like if you not watched Sherlock (BBC) recommend it and of course Orphan Black (BBCA).

@nexusone1984: I watch all that he listed, I DVR them and watch them as I get time.

Wow -- how do you find the time to watch all of them?

Also, since you watch them all, ho wwoudl you rate/compare them to each other?

What's TV, anyway? I'd rather play my guitar.

@Etmax: From your list I haven't seen any of them except Orphan Black, which is superb. I watched one episode and was hooked.

OK -- you've persuaded me -- I will watch the first episode of the first series (it's on my iPad) and see if I get sucked in ... see you on the flip-side :-)

Philistines all of them, how can you not be in awe of Dr Who, I too have watched it from the beginning but the new format where some 40 minutes once per week gives you the story is my preference as I don't like piecemeal viewing.


From your list I haven't seen any of them except Orphan Black, which is superb. I watched one episode and was hooked. Brillian acting and a fabulous story. Not always factual in the science department but then it does have the word fiction in there somewhere.


My wife heads off into the land of nod as well, but I have too much energy for that and just get up and watch something else until I feel I am tired enough to sleep. I haven't done much on my projects for a few years now because I just have too much work and so need to do something else in my free time like watching SciFi.

Big Bang is a classic to and will be one series of the day that will endure, so many are fly by nighters, a lot like Rap (talking music, not SciFi :-) ), which is popular now but my guess is in 15 years nobody will talk about it.

Well whether or not you take the plunge now or later depends on how many other series you have queued up. I don't feel at east unless I have at least two series ready to go after I finish the one I am currently on. Have you seen True Detective? Hands down, the most awesome show to come along since The Wire!

@kfield: I am eagerly awaiting the delivery of the Orphan Black Season Two DVD set.

I've got the first episode of season 1 downloaded to my iPad -- I just wasn't sure if it was worth taking the plunge.
