Experience five decades of Doctor Who in 10 short minutes

Experience five decades of Doctor Who in 10 short minutes

As a recent episode of Portlandia joked, Doctor Who might be the ultimate small-screen feast for TV bingers who’ve exhausted their DVDs of Battlestar Galactica and other addictive series—but the six-series, 26-season, 784-episode show is not the easiest franchise to dive into, particularly if you’re the sort who has to start at the beginning of things. We here at The A.V. Club have done what we can to ease newbies into the world of the good Doctor(s), from a Primer to TV Club Classic recaps, but this nicely edited video from YouTuber Stuart Humphryes may be the most comprehensive catch-up—assuming a couple of seconds of each episode constitutes “catching up” in your book. This video covers every Doctor Who adventure—including clips from the 106 episodes that are missing from the BBC archives—from 1963’s “An Unearthly Child” up through last year’s Christmas special. It may not be canon, but it’s still pretty cool.

More Great Job, Internet!
