I have watched a few episodes. I really like it, but I can't seem to find a good place online to watch it (don't get BBC). The main problem is I cant find the begging. I can't watch anything unless i have seen it in order.

I dunno where to find the first story (variously called An Unearthly Child and 100,000 BC) online, but a DVD boxset called The Beginning Boxset has the first three Doctor Who stories: An Unearthly Child, The Daleks, and The Edge of Destruction. This boxset has a wonderful documentary on the creation of the program called Doctor Who: Origins, as well as a pilot version of the original story which was never meant to be transmitted.

Here's the first part of the first episode from YouTube. This is not the pilot version, as most versions on YouTube appear to be, but rather the version transmitted.


I recommend that, if you can borrow the DVD set, do so.
Thank you for posting the video!! I read somewhere that the first episode, or maybe a couple episodes in the first season, had been lost forever. It's really cool to see the first episode and know it's not dead. :3
Living in the US, I'm one of the newbies to the series and came into not knowing anything about the Doctor's past or the Time Lords or anything. (So to me he has always been the Last of the Time Lords, and the Time War is only an old story.) it's kind of fun because the series is so long, seeing the old episodes feels like uncovering real history, like a lost tomb or something!

The first three stories are available. Unfortunately, the entirety of the fourth Doctor Who story, Marco Polo, is missing. All missing stories and episodes have audio recordings (made by fans), and they often have clips available from various sources. There is a good list of what is currently missing and what is available from missing episodes on Wikipedia: ... g_episodes

That sounded like an episode I did see, and it turns out I am right - the idea of miniaturizing the main characters was eventually used for the series 2 story Planet of Giants.
