I have always been fascinated my the trivia and minutiae of Doctor Who lore. The Doctor's early life on Gallifrey, his family and schooling have particularly intrigued me since childhood. To this end I pieced together a patchwork of quotes and clips in an attempt to paint a more complete picture of his early life; the intention being to produce a series of Beginner's Guides to cover other topics, such as the TARDIS and the Daleks, although these were never made.

Let's face it, those early videos, from 2006-2008 have exceedingly poor typography. It took me a long, long time to get a handle on how to use typefaces correctly. This is especially apparent in a video that relies as heavily on type as this Beginner's Guide. That is why I removed the title from the video so that t wouldn't be easily searchable on YouTube. My intention was to remake it a little more professionally and began the process in 2015. However, once I announced my extended break from YouTube in 2016 I shelved the project. It may happen one day.....
