Cultural Exchange

I’m going across the pond in about a week and a half, and I’m feeling more or less ready. But one thing about British culture still mystifies me: What’s the deal with Doctor Who? I know it’s this huge phenomenon over in the UK, but I can’t get my head around the premise, and trying to piece it together from the Wikipedia page just makes things more confusing.

He’s, like, what, a magical alien who travels around space in a phone booth? I don’t get it.

  1. Exactly! Yes! I’ve never quite gotten it either but people love it. It sounds really silly.

  2. It’s not a phone booth, it’s a TARDIS. And he doesn’t travel around space, he travels through time which is like traveling through awesome.

    Jesus, Ned, I thought you were a nerd…

  3. I agree with Dylan Matthews.

    Also – why UK? Semester’s study abroad or what?

  4. Yup.
