Calling All Whovians

image from: http://www.bbc.co.uk/

So, then.  Whovians, I call to you for aid.  I've seen a lot of rumble over the past year about Doctor Who.  I thought, what is this show about eh? (I'm Canadian now, it's official.  Only we don't actually say eh here in Quebec.  It'd be something more like, maudit).  Anyways, I've been interested in checking it out so I watched a Christmas special I found on Netflix.  That was cool.  I'd definitely like to see more.  But when I researched (i.e. Googled and checked in Wikipedia) I found a hell of a lot of information and a list of the different doctors - it seems there are 11 so far.  But what I couldn't figure out, is how to watch it from beginning to end.  The DVD's offered by the BBC are in series and then there are a lot of other DVD's with show titles but it's very difficult to figure out how to go about watching from the first doctor and seeing the shows in the right sequence.  Now, maybe I'm looking at it all wrong.  Maybe if I just watch series 1 through 7 it covers all 11 doctors?  You tell me.  Is it worth it to go back all the way to the first doctor and watch them sequentially or should I just watch the newer ones?  I'm looking for a little guidance.  Give a newbie some of your deep Whovian wisdom.
