Just finished reading Anansi Boys by Neil Gaimen, I enjoyed it but not as much as American Gods.

Now started reading The Knight by Gene Wolfe

Steven Moffat talks 'Doctor Who' and also a bit about an episode author Neil Gaimen (American Gods, Stardust, Coraline, The Sandman, etcetera etcetera) has written.

I've been wanting to get into the whole Doctor Who thing for the longest time, but have never watched a single episode. Where should I start? I don't care about the really old stuff, but the new iterations look great. Can I jump on board with the new show, or should I watch the Eccleston/Tenant stuff first? Advice, please.

My suggestion would be either start at the First of the new seasons OR starting with this brand new season.

The reason I say that is because this season has had a lot more staff changes than just the replacement of head writer Russell T Davies with Steven Moffat (Who has written/is still writing the new series best episodes). The staff themselves even say amongst themselves that they are considering "Season One" or "Season Five".

Starting at the beginning has some really good episodes AND gets you to grips with the premise, recurring themes, and the Doctors relationship with his companions, Rose Tyler of the first and second season, or Amy Pond, of this season.

Personally I would start with Ecceleston and just continue on. I feel you will get more enjoyment out of it, as you will feel more connected with the characters, and will understand references to previous episodes. The quality is all top notch, so it's not like it starts bad and gets better, It is equally good throughout the series.
