What we tell people when we want them to watch Doctor Who: It's a quirky drama with lots of British humour and it's a classic sci-fi show and you'll love it.
What we should do when they actually start watching: Here. *gives hugs*
You'll need this. *hands kleenex*
And this. *hands tea*
OH! And you'll be wanting a shock blanket! *hands shock blanket*
And we'll be having group therapy later if you'd like to come.
And might I suggest Sherlock?
It will break both hearts in half the time and they take forever to make a new series. Aren't you happy you started watching Doctor Who?
