Question From The Doctor Who Ignorant
As a kid I watched Tom Baker on PBS here in the States, but I've never seen another play the Doctor. That is, until Mike sent me a copy of the recently revived version with Christopher Eccleston last year. I really liked it and set my DVR to grab up every episode. The problem is the only I've come across are the Eccleston eps until this week.
Sci Fi ran a mini-marathon and I now have a bunch of the Tennant episodes to watch. Now I see you guys saying Billie Piper is gone and her replacement might even leave!?!?!
So my questions-
-Is there anywhere in the States BESIDE Sci Fi to watch this series? I'm assuming they are one or two seasons behind.
-Why did Eccleston leave? I really liked him.
-How long was the series off the air?
-Was there some sort of movie during the hiatus? Can I get it somewhere?
-I saw a reference to "The 5 Doctors." What is this? Did more than one Doctor met himself in a single time period?
-Does the regeneration process also change the Doctor's personality? I was wondering if that's how the show explains the different styles from each actor.
-Is there a good website that explains a lot of this?
-Can you get the series on DVD separated by who played the Doctor? I'd like to have the Tom Baker years.
-Is there another Doctor you'd recommend I see? Keep in mind that I really enjoyed the seemingly absent-minded versions by Baker and a bit by Eccleston.
WANTED - Solid-Boxed WGSH's, C.8 or better.
