Hoodzpah Staff Picks: Netflix | Doctor Who

You know what really helps keep me rolling through those late night design hours? Netflix. And Netflix keeps the episodes rolling with that handy “The next episode will begin in 12 seconds, 11, 10, 9…” (at least for a few episodes until Netflix naggingly asks, “Are you still watching?” Of course, I am, Netflix! I will tell you when I am done, thankyouverymuch). So I’m happy to introduce a new blog series of Hoodzpah staff Netflix picks (available on Netflix Instant Watch) to help float you through those last few rounds of revisions.

For our first selection, allow me to get super nerdy on you with one of my all time favorite series: Doctor Who! This awesome British television series originally spanned 26 seasons and over 800 episodes. This may be blasphemy for some Whovians (what Doctor Who fans call themselves), but I much prefer the modern continuation of the series (which relaunched in 2005 with the 9th Doctor). So I’ll be focusing on that chunk of this rad series here which includes 8 magnificent seasons (please forgive Season 1’s production value; this was before the show was given a real budget).


What is Doctor Who? It’s a show about a time-and-space traveling alien who explores the universe, righting wrongs and saving worlds, with the help of his companions in a little blue box called the TARDIS (Time And Relative Dimension In Space). The storylines are fairly fast-paced and interesting, a delightful mix of science-fiction, adventure and problem-solving against a wide variety of problems and enemies. I think one of the best things about Doctor Who is regardless of how dire the circumstances, the Doctor remains hopeful and cheeky.

Another facet of this story is that the Doctor regenerates from time to time and is transformed into an entirely different incarnation of himself, personality and all. Everyone has a favorite Doctor; mine being the inimitable David Tennant. I’m a sucker for suits and converse. Give it a watch and let us know which Doc is your favorite!
