Movie Review - Doctor Who

Well, things are plugging long for me, just finished my speech for class (only by staying up all of last night, ugh!) Any way its time for another movie review! Doctor Who, is by far the the favorite TV series in our house. Anyway, Doctor Who is a British television sci-fi show that started way back when the black and white days and is still going on today. Okay I just want to put in a disclaimer to the Doctor Who fans who may happen to read this that I know I cannot give justus to the awesomeness of Doctor Who in it's complexity. Anyway, the series is about a Timelord (eg. an alien) that travels in time and space in his time ship that is bigger on the inside and also looks like a police box, and his various adventures saving the world. Did I mention that he's about 900 years old? Timelords have this way of "cheating death" as it where, and are able to regenerate, which basically means that if he gets killed his body is able to regenerate it self, and basically changes completely (new actor and everything). This way the get a "new" Doctor, though he has the same memories, he has a new body and personality. So far the Doctor has regenerated ten times (I refuse to accept the eleventh, the newest one is just not the doctor!) Anyway this the way the series is divided according the regenerations. My personal favorite is the tenth version of the Doctor (acted by the Scottish David Tennant!) who is on the newer part of the Doctor Who Series. My family prefers the fourth better (acted by Tom Baker) since he was the Doctor when my dad watched the show as a kid! If you want to start watching the series (since it will be nearly impossible for you to understand it if you start in the middle) I suggest that you start with the tenth Doctor on this episode Smith and Jones  as the newer series is better explaining the doctor. The entire new series is also on Netfiex Instant watch, which may be helpful to those of you have Netfix. Just so you know the newer Doctor who series is meant for older audiences and not for children, but the older series (exspecally the forth doctor) is alright for older children. Overall I would defiantly recommend this movie as it as all that a good show should have, humor, action, time traveling, and cool British accents!
