Your new crew
It's easy to get into Doctor Who this year! Not only is there a new cast, there's a ton of new blood behind the scenes, too! We Doctor Who fans are unusually attached to the people who make their favourite programme, so you might as well get to know this new crew along with us!
How to Doctor Who

Intimidated by the long history of Doctor Who? Don't be. Just jump right in at this year's first story and enjoy it as a brand new show. These four concepts are probably all you'll actually need.

But if you get curious about the rest, take a look here at some specially-designed landing pages that'll help you get accustomed to the worlds of Doctor Who. Slowly. One bite at a time.

Doctor Who is a "family franchise", which means there's something in it for all ages.
It does not mean that all content is appropriate for all ages.

In simpler language: we're just fans doing our best to catalogue the franchise we love, without hurting the financial position of any of its owners.
There's more than just TV

You can certainly choose to enjoy Doctor Who as purely a television series. But did you know that there are far more stories told in the comic and audio form than exist in the whole television catalogue? Luckily, there's no such thing as canon in this fandom. So you can enjoy exactly the kind of Doctor Who you prefer. And we'll be here to cover it all!

The Secret History cover

Big Finish's main range of Doctor Who audio stories features the adventures of mainly the Fifth, Sixth and Seventh Doctors, complete with large casts, sound effects and scores. Though some original-to-audio companions are occasionally used, the line typically features the original lead actors seen on television.

The Night Walkers concluded the tale of the Second Doctor living in Time Lord-enforced exile in London for a few months prior to becoming the Third Doctor. Much of the story stressed how he had actually become a celebrity and was appearing on a television game show when the Time Lords finally caught up with him to impose the final punishment mentioned — but never quite seen — in his last televised story.
