BBC Store has curated a very special collection
of Doctor Who
stories and episodes aimed at introducing new fans to the world’s longest running sci-fi show’s 52+ year history. From "classic" episodes to "new" Who
, A Beginners Guide to Doctor Who
houses a brilliant selection of some of the most celebrated stories of the last half century to delight a new audience.
BBC Store’s Simon Farquhar comments:
“Some people might feel a bit overwhelmed by Doctor Who and not know where to start exploring it. If you’ve ever found yourself wondering about the history of the Whoniverse and how it evolved, then our Beginners’ Guide is here to help audiences navigate time and space across the most imaginative world television has ever created. We’ve tried to select stories that exemplify the different eras the show has gone through, from the eerie black and white beginnings to the Gothic horror of the mid-Seventies and the fast-paced furore of today’s series . It’s been difficult with so many episodes and Doctors to choose from, but this collection is a fun way to begin exploring Doctor Who.”
From the new era, fan favourite Blink starring Carey Mulligan introduces the terrifying Weeping Angels, Doctor Who’s return to BBC One in Rose with Billie Piper and Christopher Eccleston, and many of the much loved classic stories including Spearhead from Space, Genesis of the Daleks and Earthshock are all packaged together to give new fans an introduction to the longest running Sci Fi drama in the world.
The full list of episodes on A Beginners Guide to Doctor Who
is: Tomb of the Cybermen, Spearhead from Space, Genesis of the Daleks, The Talons of Weng-Chiang, Earthshock, Rose, Blink, The Day of the Doctor
and Mummy on the Orient Express.
