Whovians, help!

JT & TJ
Since I don't have BBC America on my cable service, I have to get the episodes from Amazon. Do I need to watch An Adventure in Time and Space, or can I just watch The Day of the Doctor.

Just the Day of the Doctor.

Adventures is a documentary about how Dr. Who came about, and the first doctor. Nothing to do with the anniversary special at all, really :)

Great, thanks! That's what I thought, but I wanted to be sure. :-)

No problem, I watched both yesterday. Adventures is a dramatization, not really a 'documentary'; it documents the beginnings of the show :) It was good though, if you ever get a chance to see it.

You can just watch the Day of the Doctor, which is awesome! Do watch the two webisode on youtube though if you get a chance. Especially the Night of the Doctor.

Seconding watching Night of the Doctor [before The Day of the Doctor] - it'll help explain the background before you embark.

That said, An Adventure in Space and Time is just utterly lovely - essentially a love letter to the show, and explains where it came from and how it grew. Perfectly written, acted directed... everything. I draw hearts around the whole thing. <3 But it's very much a standalone, and about the show, rather than the show itself. Bit like the Confidentials, except as a drama. *g*

Oh, thanks for the link. I'll watch that too. Just finished DotD, and loved it! :-) I'll have to check out Adventure, too, I think.
