Is there anything I need to know for backstory?

I’m starting with New Who, FYI. I already know that the Doctor is a Time Lord, and they reincarnate sorta-kinda, and the TARDIS is bigger on the inside and whatnot, but aside from that: What do I need to know, starting off at the first episode of New Who?
