The Doctor, a Time Lord/Lady from the race called Time Lords whose home planet is Gallifrey, travels through time and space in his/her ship the TARDIS (an acronym for Time and Relative Dimension In Space) with numerous companions. From time to time he/she regenerates into a new form (which is how the series has been running since the departure of William Hartnell in 1966).
During the first season, Christopher Eccleston is credited as "Doctor Who", as set in the Classic Series. Beginning with the second season - reportedly at the behest of the show's new star, David Tennant - the credit has been changed to read "The Doctor". See more »
Absolutely amazing. For over fifty years, we have enjoyed the adventures of The Doctor. He has been young, old, had long hair, had short hair, been tall, been short, and he has had many companions. Rose Tyler, Donna Noble, Martha Jones, K-9, Amy Pond, Rory Williams, Clara Oswin Oswald, Captain Jack Harkness, Mickey Smith, Wilfred Mott, Susan Foreman, Ian Chesterton, Barbara Wright, Jamie McCrimmon, Jo Grant, Leela, Romana, Ace, and the best, Sarah Jane Smith, to name a few of them. The acting has always been top notch, and the characters and storyline have always been some of the best around. The special effects have gotten much better since 1963, and it now looks absolutely fantastic. The Tenth Doctor is my favorite Doctor, followed by the Fourth. I highly recommend this show, it is hard to explain just how great it really is.
