This show was so much better when it was about a policeman wandering around in the fog! Why'd they have to ruin it with all that alien stuff?

But seriously, what's your level of familiarity with the show? I have to imagine that Four at least is in your brain somewhere as the iconic lead of the series.

Nope I'm young so Ten is the iconic lead. Never seen 4 but can't WAIT to get to his episodes. I've also only seen 9 and 10's run.

I like the one in the boater pretty well (doesn't hurt that Ace is fucking awesome).

I will be paying close attention to this liveblog, since I refuse to watch new Who until I've seen the original stuff, and finding the original stuff is a bitch and a half.

Our episode summaries give links! so Unearthly child part 1 soon

Specifically, the master tapes of some of One and almost all of Two's stories were destroyed, either taped over or burned, but the audio of the entire franchise still exists and those lost stories are being released with still images over the soundtrack.

Welcome to An Unearthly Child part 1 Watch here. so first Squee the theme! Trippy. OK so we see a cop walking through fog. Is he walking in a circle? I saw Foreman, Doctor that you? OMG THE TARDIS!!!! Apparently this was written by Anthony Coburn who also wrote The Robots. Oh so the text on 9 and 10's police box is a Continuity Nod. Sweet.

We fade to Coal Hill School yes School in a Time Travel show. Words I can't understand are spoken but seem to be about grades. GET TO THE DOCTOR!!

Oh there's Barbara talking to Ian. Also she's hot. Susan is a issue but why? Being 15 isn't a issue, Hell I'M 15! oh she knows more science than Ian.grin Same with history. well she is a Time Lady Interested in specializing but doesn't want Barbara over. Granddad doesn't want strangers Doesn't seem like our doctor. He's a doctor What a coincidence. Grades going down No that's either laziness or love troubles kicking in. No house at the address? just bugs me NO ONE FOUND THIS WEIRD TILL NOW?! It's a junkyard wild mass guess Susan and her granddad are hobos? also I'm NOT 5 MINUTES IN YET! There's NOTHING at the address? BUT YOU SAID IT'S A JUNKYARD! Oh they're going exploring! No subtext here. Wow she's reading a book on the French Revolution. GO HOME! I mean your junkyard! The plan..... TO STALK HER!

Susan(?) is "Rocking out" to generic guitar music. She's also Asian(?)and HAWT! What are you doing with your hands!? HUH HUH Susan said Fabulous. Don't talk about the music! Science teacher knows bands? Susan's more stereotypical British than Ian and Barbara!? She likes walking through the dark cause it's "mysterious"? Weird. She's nitpicking the book. Cool.

Barbara you got there first for 2 reasons. 1. You have a car. 2. She's reading at the school remember? Of course you're figuring out about her! Wasn't that the plan!? Whoa she doesn't know how many shillings in a pound! That's bizarre. Doctor try better to blend in! WE DIDN'T NEED A FLASHBACK! and why decimal system? Again Doctor, TRY TO BLEND IN! You just blew being a time traveler! Britain went decimal in 1971, this is in 1963 BTW. Dealing with active chemicals would be fun. STOP EMBARRASSING YOURSELF! She wants 5 dimensions time and space added? It'd be harder but it would work.

She's made it to the junkyard! Wait that must have been a SHORT read. Finally the boy idea shows up! 15 plus abandoned place usually equals secret date/lover. She feels like she interrupting in something that should be left alone?

Whoa Susan's become a tomboy! They're going at last. Ticking clocks... SYLAR RUN!!! Nice Ian trip over something when you're being sneaky. You have a torch! And you lost it! How do you lose a TORCH! Yes start calling for Susan. Idiots. You found the TARDIS! Vibrating? Well looks like you were right! It's a boy there!

Hartnell! Took you almost 12 minutes to arrive! Susan's granddad is Hartnell? Awesome! Why are you showing yourself! YES Hartnell told you off for stalking! Ooh backfired on you there huh Doctor! I like this conversation. Why bringing him to police again? Think he's a serial killer? a rapist? WHAT? Um guys talking softer would be smart right about now! Doctor! Stop owning people!

Sweet we're FINALLY in the TARDIS! Why doesn't Nu Who's TARDIS have a door opening/closing switch? Yes we know you walked all around it Ian! He wants to understand? BEST. TEACHER. EVER. Nope not illusion. Wait is THE DOCTOR insulting humans? What's gonna happen to Ian? Wait SUSAN named the TARDIS that? AWW YOU ARE A SOFTIE DOCTOR! He NEVER calls it something different! Yes this box can go through TIME AND SPACE! Why do aliens get all the cool toys? They don't believe you Susan cause it sounds ridiculous! The Doctor calling humans savage? You're different from 10 to say the least. They referenced the Time lords! When are they called that? I want to wander the 4th dimension! Wait cut off? Why? Stop whining Susan! You're 15 not 10! What time were you born in Susan? Doctor did Evil Laugh. What happens to you to cause this drastic of a change? No Ian do not press random switches! The TARDIS HURT IAN! This Doctor scares me.

Math guy
...Over 750 episodes. GOOD GOD. This has to be the craziest LB this forum's yet seen. It's worse than trying to do the entire Detective Conan anime.

Hakoach yihieh it'cha.
Pronounced "shy guy."

I have spent 4 months of my life outside my home country. Paste this into your sig with your data!
interesting, but aren't most of the early episodes kind of well, unavailable in any capacity?

Wait, so they have the audio... why don't they make an animated series?

They did that for a Second Doctor story that was missing one episode, IIRC. But I don't think the profit margin is high enough for them to do it for all the missing episodes.

Yeah, the Doctor started out a a huge Jerkass. There's actually something of a character arc of him learning to loosen up and enjoy travelling around with humans.

Is this character arc only for this doctor or shared between multiple doctors?
To Be Updated when I'm not Lazy
Technically it's completed by Two; before the writers fully established what regeneration meant, the idea was that Two was actually a younger version of One. But since his greater appreciation for his companions set him so much apart from what viewers thought of as One's personality, the idea developed that each regeneration resulted in a new person.

Part 2 here.

Susan, You want to stay with the people who stalked you? What? You think they will not ever mention FINDING A SPACESHIP! She's not leaving and she'd rather leave the TARDIS and the Doctor? OK...... Oh the Doctor's letting them go. Bye everybody! See you in the next liveblog!

Why is Susan yelling no? THE NOISE! THEY'RE TIME TRAVELING! Why did Ian fall over? Wait, OMG he launched a rocket! Oh wait that's a radioactive sperm. Or the time vortex. IDK ANYMORE! Is Susan going through puberty? The Doctor's breathing a whirlpool! RUN!

Hooray a BBC Quarry! This TARDIS has a viewscreen? AND Nu Who's DOESN'T! WHY! Holy crap Ian and Barbara fell over unconscious! Where are we? A shadow! Looks like we're gonna find out.

See you next time in The Cave Of Skulls! One thing first. WHY DO THE CREDITS SAY DR.WHO!
To Be Updated when I'm not Lazy
I hoped you liked the tiny bit of information about the Doctor in this episode, because it's pretty much all you're getting until Two's final story.

Regarding the "Doctor Who" in the credits, Continuity Drift strikes again. Initially that was the working name for the character, with him introducing himself simply as The Doctor due to his implied fugitive status. Again, this was reformatted during Two's run into the way we know it now with The Doctor as the self-chosen name he gives people (his real name is still a mystery; odds are humans couldn't pronounce it anyway).

Wait only bit of Doctor info till 2's final episode? What about The Meddling Monk?
