Have you ever known anyone who is a Doctor Who fan? Have you ever scoffed at it's cheesy special effects? or just don't like it? Well, you haven't even given it a chance? It's a superb show. Its aimed at an audience of all ages,there is no foul language and/or bloody violence or any "adult" material that you'r children might stumble upon while watching.
However, speaking of the show recently, it is coming up on it's 50th anniversary where the 10th Doctor, David Tennant is coming back whilst the 11th is on set, but the script and plot are unknown to fans, or also known as (whovians). It was first actually meant as an educational program for young kids, to teach history using a time machine. See? Isn't it already interesting? Even our own American producer/director, Steven Spielberg said that, "The world would be a poorer place without Doctor Who." This came from a director that had made most of the American classic's: E.T Jurassic Park, Jaws, and War of the Worlds and many others and has one over 60 awards. Even the Queen of England herself is a huge fan of Doctor Who! Now, why should you watch Doctor Who? For four reasons, it's educational, it's british, the Doctor, and the life lessons it teaches you and to be weird is okay.
Doctor who is a very educational, it is very geeky. because as I stated before Doctor who did start as an educational television show.However it has taught me different things, like how to pronounce Vincent Van Gogh's name correctly. I also learned French and Italian phrases like "Allonsy-y" which means "let's go" and "Molto bene"which in Italian means "very good". It also has taught me really cool facts like when they were building the Empire State Building people were starving in the streets and the homeless camped out in the middle of Central Park, the rich instead used their money to build the tallest building.
Doctor who is in facts British, it has all british actors and when they do have american guest actors those are the episode they travel to America. Like Andrew Garfield who played in the new movie Spiderman. I find the dialogue and the storylines of these British writers and produces unique and different then our American movies.
Dr. Who itself has taught me many things. Different things, and things are able to make me a better person. I learned violence could never solve anything, to be okay with who you are, and to love the people who you love for being yourself, to be strange and to look up at the night sky, and to search for a little blue box.
I think you should watch Dr. Who, because its a wonderful British show, it is educational, it's British, and has cool characters, and I feel this TV show should have more publicity. I strongly think you should watch it! Just watch one episode and if you don't like it that's fine.
