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).
In Doctor Who: The Invasion of Time: Part Six (1978) in the original series. Borusa is seen reading a newspaper about the 1912 Titanic disaster, which the Fourth Doctor claimed he had nothing to do with it. In Doctor Who: Rose (2005), Rose Tyler is shown an old photo of The Ninth Doctor, with a family in 1912, and is told that The Ninth Doctor told the family not to go aboard the Titanic and that the family survived. In the 2007 Christmas Special Doctor Who: Voyage of the Damned (2007), The Tenth Doctor goes aboard the Sto passenger spaceship, which is named after the Titanic passenger liner that sunk in 1912.

One of the greatest television programs of all time
You looking for Sci-Fi? It's got it. Action? It's got it. Drama? That too! This show has got it all. With tastes of Horror, Romance, Mystery, even some Western. It really depends on the episode. While not episode is perfect, every episode can be appreciated. While the main idea of the show doesn't change, the show has experimented in many ways. The show is ever changing, with the main cast being swapped every few years. With such a big history, there's a reason the show still stands strong to this day. The episodes give nods to the past, and hints to the future. With this capability, it truly has an infinite potential.
This show truly has affected my life in ways I'd never believed. I went into the show believing it to be a cliché, boring Sci-Fi (I'd never been a fan of the genre), but after just a few episodes I was absolutely hooked. With each new main character added, you quickly learn to love them, despite your disbelief in the ability to after such a heartbreaking exit, which I'll get into later. The characters are written brilliantly, and by the end there run, you always say that the next person coming along will never be as good. Every time, your proved wrong. While everyone has their favorites, each Companion and Doctor have moments to shine, and are all brilliant in their own way.
This show truly is something special. I'll support this show for decades, and I give it a very easy 10/10.
