Characters, to me, are the most important part of any film or TV show. I have mentioned multiple times in my previous posts what I thought of the characters or the character development. I can’t stand to watch films that have weak characters or characters that come in and you are just supposed to love them right off without knowing anything about them. I love getting to know the characters and who they are, the crazier the better.
Doctor Who is an absolutely perfect example of characters that capture you so that you can’t help but love them. Doctor Who is a tricky show, in that if you try to explain it, it sounds stupid, but if you simply watch it everything falls into place, and BAM! It’s fantastic.
I found a nice blog post that explains it rather nicely. See it here.
Personally, I suggest that if you plan to take on Doctor Who you watch the 9th Doctor first and work up to the present Doctor. Those are the only generations of the Doctor that I am familiar with, aside from a few episodes of the first Doctor. Well, I guess I have to explain this. You see the Doctor is the time traveling main character in Doctor Who, and he can’t die he just regenerates which makes him look like a totally different person (because he is a totally different actor). Doctor who has been around for an extremely long time in Britain, but recently it was made into a new TV show.
The 9th Doctor is the first in this series. Personally he isn’t my favorite, but he is the perfect introduction into this series.
Anyway, I have found that in every episode new characters are introduced, and I am always amazed at how attached I get to every single one of them. And whenever the Doctor regenerates or he gets a new companion I think to myself that I won’t like them, I can’t possibly love them as much as the one before, but I do.
I can find myself screaming at the television at any given time while watching Doctor Who, and I love it. Doctor Who would be nothing with out it’s characters. The depth and intricacies of each character make Doctor Who the perfect example of how characters are the most important part of any show.
It’s an absolutely wonderful adventure and everyone in the world should see it because it will undoubtedly make them a better person.
If you already watch Doctor Who, carry on. If you have yet to experience it, start immediately!
Happy Movie Watching!
