Description: It seems that every Whovian has "their" Doctor. This is usually their first Doctor or their favorite Doctor, or both. I don't like playing favorites. "My" Doctor is always the one I'm currently watching. But, be that as it may, the ninth Doctor introduced me to Doctor Who. I've told the story many times - I didn't like the show at first. I didn't hate it either. I just didn't find it very interesting for the first three to five episodes. It is sort of a slow burner as there are a lot of strange things about the show. It wasn't until my third attempt on a weekend when I was house-sitting and had nothing else to do but watch Netflix all day that I pushed through the first five episodes and kept watching (and I haven't really stopped).

By the end of that first series, I was obsessed. The ninth Doctor was the only survivor of the Time War. He was the last Time Lord. And it was his fault. I think this is one of the biggest reasons the show was successful. He was also less eccentric than the classic Doctors. His outfit wasn't colorful. He had a northern accent. There was nothing really remarkably different about him. He could blend in a lot easier. It was heartbreaking to watch Christopher Eccleston regenerate, as I'd become very attached to him. Every time I watch the first series, the more I wish we could have had more seasons with Eccleston. He was simply fantastic. But at the same time, I also think having the Doctor regenerate early on in the new series also led to the shows success - it introduced the regeneration concept early and brought us the Tenth Doctor, David Tennant.
