The BBC Wales Doctor Who is meant to be able to be watched and followed independent of the originals. So you will be fine to jump in with Eccleston (the 9th Doctor).

Most people always regard their first Doctor as their favorite and I would not recommend 9 as a first, he is a good Doctor but I've never thought he truly embodied really who Doctor Who is. I would suggest (if you can deal with 70s and 80s scripts and special effects) watching some of Tom Baker's 4th Doctor.
