The Newbies Guide
The New Series
The current ongoing Doctor Who TV series was announced in September 2003, and the first episode, Rose, was broadcast on BBC 1 on Saturday the 26th of March 2005 at 7.00 pm. The new series does not rely heavily on the show's past, but neither does it ignore the rich heritage of the original. The chances are that you won't need to know anything more than the basic premise to understand any of the stories - and for the first episode, you don't even need to know that. However, we have still done newbies guides to the series to tell you where the backstory (such as it is) comes from.
