I came to the new Doctor Who through a rather circuitous route. I’m one of those people who remembers when Doctor Who was black-and-white and the sets looked like they were made from refrigerator boxes. My best friend was addicted to the show (to the point of dressing in character for conventions) but I never felt the pull. Then Torchwood came along and I was hooked. I found out that the character of Captain Jack Harkness originated on Doctor Who so I sought out those episodes to fill in the gaps. I was bowled over. This was not the Doctor Who I remembered. This was sharp, witty, and charming, and I wanted to see more.
