Re: Getting into Doctor Who.
Gratulations, you know everything you need to know for the facts.
Though there is also the question of the tone. Whle hte effects got a lot better than they were in the sixties through eighties, Doctor Who is still often a silly, silly show with rhinoceros space policemen and scenery pulverizing overacting. Quite often, it does not take itself remotely seriously. It still works, and very well.
"You raise your baton. The glass kettle drums pound out the the overture. Your vision clouds with blood. You wipe it away and continue. The xylophonist's hair bursts into a violet flame, but he continues playing. He's either a consummate professional or very drunk indeed..."
