12. I would never hate you (unless you're a repuq)

Doctor Who isn't for everyone, but the 10th Doctor is something special. I've never laughed or CRIED as hard as when I watched Rose and him gallivant across time and space.
David Tennant is such a wonderful actor.

14. Are those the new shows?

I've been working my way through the Classic Doctor Who on Britbox. I'm up to Season 16 - I think that is about three or four years into the Tom Baker episodes.

17. Yes, I would tell a "new" Doctor Who viewer to start with the 9th Doctor,

Christopher Eccleston. He was only the Doctor for one year, and a very good incarnation, but then the real great stuff begins with David and the 10th Doctor. HBO Max begins with the 9 Doctor and calls it season 1.

Btw, IMHO, you will not miss anything if you skip from Tom Baker to Christopher.

18. I'm definitely not a new Doctor Who viewer

Started watching it on Georgia Public TV back in the early 1970s when they started by airing the original first season with William Hartnell. I've watched every doctor up to Peter Capaldi, but sort of lost the plot with him (not his fault, I liked his Doctor) - had a lot of shit go down in real life in 2017 and 2018.

I'll keep working my way through the classics. Maybe by the time I finish those, the "new" series will be on something other than HBO.

19. I just began the Capaldi era again.

When it first aired, I tried to get into him, but was so distraught with the "demise" of the 11th Doctor that I had some prejudice against his character.
That has faded and I will enjoy getting back into being a Whovian again.

20. I liked Capaldi fine but it took a few episodes to get used to his accent

Then we had two deaths in the family (my mother and my mother in law), I had a aortic valve replacement and a kidney removed. By the time I was able to consistently watch again, the series had moved on and I wanted to go back to the older episodes to catch up. Not that Doctor Who episodes rely on previous ones for consistency outside the current series, of course.

And then when the female Doctor was introduced we were in the UK and they were half way through the series so that really messed me up. I figure at this point I'm four or five years behind.

21. Sorry to hear about all your issues.

Wifey just had a tumor removed from her kidney in December so I feel ya. This was just after fighting Lymphoma for 18 months prior.
Hope things are better for you now.

Yeah, I know Capaldi was not the first OLD Doctor, but we had been fed a diet of young vigorous characters for so long that it was difficult for me to transition.

Good luck!!!

22. I hope your wife is doing well

We'd hoped to just resection my kidney but the location of the tumor was such that they had to remove it. The good thing was that it was caught early so little to no chance that the cancer might spread.

Things are getting better. Both mother's houses have been cleared, one sold, the other is on the market. So we have more time and less stress now.

Hey, you want an old Doctor, Hartnell defined that! But yeah, after Tenant and Smith, Capaldi took a little getting used to.

23. Thank you. She is doing great. Stage 4 Lymphoma almost killed her

but great Doctors, nurses and science saved her life. I will forever be grateful for them.

24. I love the doctors and nurses and science that saved my life

But I hope I can go a long, long time before having to see most of them again. I had sixteen major operations since 2001. I want to have at least one decade without any serious health issues before I die.

9. OMG

I loved I Married Joan. Also Our Miss Brooks, Car 54, the Honeymooners, Gale Storm Show, the Phil Silvers Show, Your Show of Shows, and for something a bit intellectual...Jack Paar.
But all time fav of course I Love Lucy. I can watch those old shows, know the next line, and laugh anyway. (TV was a great baby sitter in the 50s and 60s.)

10. The old "Mission: Impossible"

Also, "Brooklyn Bridge" (which ended after way too short a run, in my humble opinion).

I watched that on Hulu a while back. It was definitely a time capsule.
