When an old enemy, the Cylons, resurface and obliterate the 12 colonies, the crew of the aged Galactica protects a small civilian fleet - the last of humanity - as they journey toward the fabled 13th colony of Earth.
Edward James Olmos,
Five hundred years in the future, a renegade crew aboard a small spacecraft tries to survive as they travel the unknown parts of the galaxy and evade warring factions as well as authority agents out to get them.
The Doctor is a renegade Time Lord: an eccentric, highly-intelligent scientist from a distant planet. He travels through time and space in the TARDIS, a curious device, larger on the inside than on the outside, which was designed to change its appearance to suit its surroundings. Unfortunately, the Doctor's TARDIS seems to be broken, and always appears as a blue British police box. The Doctor has a soft spot for the planet Earth, and often visits there, either to save it from various alien threats or to whisk a choice few inhabitants away to the distant parts of the galaxy to help him fight evil there. The Doctor has many foes, including Daleks (led by Davros), and The Master, another renegade Time Lord. Time Lord biology enables them to regenerate their bodies, and so both the Doctor and the Master appear to evolve over the years... Written by

During the Tom Baker years, many props from 'Gerry Anderson''s live action series were incorporated into the sets. Notably parts and panels from the main control stations from the Moonbase in UFO (1969) appear on Nerva Beacon in "Ark in Space" and "Revenge of the Cybermen". Kano's computer control desk from Space: 1999 (1975) appears as the control desk for the Guardians in "Underworld". See more »
When the TARDIS doors open from the inside, its outside shows the circle decorations, but it should show the Police Public Call Box doors. See more »
We must find the traitors. The enemy of the Daleks must be destroyed.
We are not traitors. We serve our creator Davros.
The Supreme Dalek is your ruler! He must be obeyed at all times.
Davros must be honoured.
He must be exterminated. Nothing must interfere in the true destiny of the Daleks! You must be exterminated! Exterminated!

Although the lead character's name is The Doctor NOT Doctor Who, the closing credits from 1963 to 1979 still used the name Doctor Who. See more »
For me,fictional characters are better heroes than most real live people.The Doctor is one of those characters. The writing on the show constantly showcases the beauty of the English language and even though it was a low-budget show,the stories more than made up for that. There was always this insane sense of fun as the Doctor and his companions went around the universe righting wrongs,having all these great adventures and exploring the wonders of the universe. The notorious English wit runs rampant throughout. ("Who did this to you?" "SOCIAL WORKERS!") It's impossible for me to pick a favorite Doctor or a favorite episode,but a few favorites of mine: "Terror Of The Autons" "City Of Death" "The Five Doctors" "The Caves Of Androzani" "Vengeance On Varos" "The Happiness Patrol" "The Greatest Show In The Galaxy" and "Paradise Towers." Occasionally,there was a clunker like the
absolutely horrible "Delta And The Bannermen" but overall,DOCTOR WHO was a classic show.
