Watch 50 Years of Doctor Who in 10 Minutes


Getting into Doctor Who can be a bit daunting. Heck, even beginning with the nu-Who can be a bit much, now that it has six series, several TV specials, and three Doctors all on its own. So why not watch this super-quick compilation of every single one of the Doctor’s adventures as assembled by Babelcolour? It’s not very long, considering how many episodes there have been — and the video is happy to sacrifice speed for coherency — but it certainly does include them all. So when people ask you if you’ve seen Doctor Who, now you’ll be able to say “Yes. Now please change the subject.” Thanks to Aidan O. for the tip.
