Quick: How do you know you’re a true “Doctor Who” fan? When you find yourself correcting someone else’s spelling of Doctor (“It’s not abbreviated, damnit!”) Before I was initiated (and I now own “Doctor Who” t-shirts), I once felt that reproach by Jay, as I recall. It felt good the other day to pass it along, although the bewildered person being corrected probably thought I should get a fucking life. He’s probably right.
Anyway, in case you folks missed it, here the “lost” “Doctor Who” cold open from Craig Ferguson’s show, and if you’ve never seen “Doctor Who” before, this should tell you everything you ever need to know, so you can feel free to pick up where ever you’d like, as long as it’s the first Eccleston episode.
