We here at Geek World have become obsessed with a decades old epic series! That's right folks, Doctor Who has sucked us in.
It all started in 2006 when we discovered Torchwood (thank you BBC America On Demand). By episode 4, "Cyberwoman", we were hooked. A beautiful woman in a cheesy looking cyborg suit was too much for us to resist (and at that point we had no idea who the Cybermen were). We followed Torchwood all the way through "Children of Earth" and knew we needed more!
We had been interested in starting Doctor Who for a while but are poor and don't have cable and the DVDs were a little too expensive for us at the time. We loved Christopher Eccleson in 28 Days Later and as Claude in Heroes and we loved Billie Piper in Secret Diary of a Call Girl so we knew Doctor Who was not to be missed. Thanks to BBC America On Demand (again), who started playing the show from the first episode, we were finally able to see what all the fuss was about.
From the pilot episode on we couldn't get enough. We loved Christopher Eccleson's run as The Doctor and David Tennant kept us smiling. Now, while we're waiting for Season 5 (with Matt Smith as the new Doctor) to start here, we've been making our way through the original Doctor Who serials (we plan to watch every single episode of Doctor Who that is available).
This blog will be our place for all things Doctor Who! The plan is to post our revelations, observations, and information about each episode of the new series as well as the old serials. We'll also post some news and other Doctor Who related goofiness.

Have you heard the Muse song Uprising?
Geek World thinks maybe they were inspired by an adventure in the Tardis because the beginning of the song sounds almost exactly like the Doctor Who theme!
I'd be less suspicious if the working title of their next project wasn't "The Resistance against the Black Holes created by the Daleks and Cybermen to reach an Absolution to the Time War"
