    Not really, no. At the point the 2005 series came on, the series had been stopped for almost twenty years. The newer episodes have a nod here and there to the old continuity, but it's not required. I watched the first 2005 episode without any prior knowledge (I had never heard of Doctor Who before) and enjoyed it. you probably know more than I did.

    Enjoy! Just give it a bit of time, the first few episodes aren't the best.

    Give us a few comments about what you think when you see it, that's always fun.

    If you are unsure, I can say this:
    The series is essentially about a crazy super-powered alien taking humans on trips through space and time for fun. You have to be able to tolerate a lot of sillyness, but the pay-off is great. The fun episodes are amazing romps, the emotional episodes are deep and tragic, and the best episodes are both. The series as a whole is just grand.

    Give it time until Dalek or The Doctor Dances, at least.

    So make sure your ole' knife is sharp, me lad,
    And make sure your powder is dry,
    For the world is awash with fools, blood and gold,
    And all men are just waiting to die.
