This new trailer for series seven of Doctor Who is definitely how we roll

There are few things that I love more in this life than DOCTOR WHO. When it came to my introduction and attachment, it really kicked off with David Tennant. One of my dearest friends from the UK would rant and rave about Tennant. Over a past Summer, she even started from the very first doctor and watched all the way through.

I got into the series in a rather strange way. When I attended Comic-Con back in 2009, I went into a room early in order to catch the Rifftrax panel. I had no clue what was going on before, but I didn't really care as long as I had a seat secured. Lo and behold, the DOCTOR WHO/TORCHWOOD panel was the one I would be taking in before Rifftrax. Tennant, along with John Barrowman showed up and I instantly fell in love. Following a viewing of the episode, "Planet of the Dead", I was hooked.

Enough about my Whovian experiences, and on to the latest trailer for series 7. There is some new stuff here for you to enjoy. This one isn't as cool as the first and more lengthy one released. Definitely needs more dinosaurs on spaceships. However, you do get more details on this season to come. I'm not caught up yet with the eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith), but will try to finish up by the series premiere on September 1st. Check out the trailer below.

When I was a child, every Saturday morning was not reserved for cartoons but for Doctor Who on PBS. To this day my favorite episodes have always been those with all the surviving Doctors. Here's hoping that with the up coming 50th anniversary we get to see something like that again, because really having Peter Davidson (5th Doctor) interacting with David Tennant for only 8 minutes on the "Time Crash" special just wasn't enough.

I started with Matt Smith's first season.

I wasn't a fan beforehand, it was his first episode that I watched on a whim that really hooked me.

After his first season I went back and watched from Eccleston onwards. Whilst there are a few good episodes interspersed in the Eccleston/Tennant run, it's can be very difficult to get over the childish aspect of it (farting aliens) and all of the running down neon lit corridors whilst being filmed at a tilted angle. Also I love how Smith's Doctor solves problems with his mind and words,

Also I love how Smith's Doctor solves problems with his mind and words, whereas Tennants (as much as I love the guy) was a bit too much action packed for me, with sword-fights and jumping down exploding elevator shafts.

Smith's two seasons are, in my opinion, the most consistently good episodes. They're fun for kids but without pandering to them, and the production design is phenomenal at times compared to the past few seasons. I loved Smith's first season, the second one was enjoyable but I feel tried to cram too many ideas into individual episodes. I hope that the new season takes it's time to flesh out and explore all the new ideas it has instead of trying to pile twist after twist after twist on top of each other like the last season did.

The Weeping Angels are back!!!

@ RandomVillain: I'd start with the 2005 revival with Christopher Eccleston as The Doctor's 9th incarnation, since many of the story-lines intersect in strange ways and you might not catch the significance of something without any prior context. Especially look for 'The Empty Child,' 'The Doctor Dances,' 'The Girl in the Fireplace' and 'Blink' (which is fucking awesome, BTW): they were all written by the current showrunner, Stephen Moffat.

Thanks! I'm gonna start on these tomorrow. My other question is, I see on Netflix stuff that looks like possible TV movies or something, are these not included in the Netflix Seasons?

Start with Matt Smith to catch up to the current story arc. You can always watch the previous Dr.s during the break.
