    Definitely agree with your top three – I might substitute Smith and Jones for Love and Monsters because it’s a lot less Absorbaloff-y. The Empty Child is a great recommendation – viewers starting there though will need to watch the following episode for the conclusion to that story though. πŸ™‚

  2. Yep, it’s a two parter! But hopefully people will get hooked enough to watch to the end. πŸ˜‰

    Love the new adjective: Absorbaloff-y. Smith and Jones is a great recommendation for people starting out! Especially if they want to start with Tennant, plus they don’t need to know backstory because it’s kind of explain-y. And in general 3rd season is a good place to start people. Added bonus: there’s an awful lot of running! We included “Love and Monsters” because that’s how I got my parents into the show– it’s more for people who are scared of sci-fi, and it tricks them, ’cause they go “aw how cute,” and then BAM! Doctor Who’d!
