I knew this day was coming. I just didn’t realize it was coming so soon. Yes, this is the day that I confess, as both a sci-fi geek and a fan of all things British, that I have never seen an episode of Dr. Who. Somehow this long-running classic has managed to escape my viewing…until now. This is a 60-minute episode shot in HD. Unfortunately, this probably isn’t the best introduction to the world of Dr. Who, as there’s not much here to help out the newbie viewer. You’re basically dropped into the action and it moves from there. In this particular episode, Dr. Who and the passengers of a double-decker bus in London get transported through a wormhole to a desert planet, inhabited solely by some fly-headed humanoid creatures.
