Storyline

The Doctor, from a race called the Time Lords whose home planet is Gallifrey, travels through time and space in his ship the TARDIS (an acronym for Time and Relative Dimensions In Space) with numerous companions. From time to time he regenerates into a new form (which is how the show has been running since 1963).

Trivia

To celebrate the 50th anniversary special, and to combat his disappointment at not being given a role in it, Peter Davison made his own amateur webisode anniversary special The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot (2013). The short webisode (which Davison wrote and directed and his daughter produced) starred his friends and relatives, with many former Doctor Who (1963) actors making cameo appearances. The plot revolves around Davison, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy trying to sneak into the set of the 50th anniversary special, when Steven Moffat declines to cast them. See more »

Quotes

[season 6 open for non-UK markets]
Amy Pond: When I was a little girl I had an imaginary friend and when I grew up he came back. He's called The Doctor. He comes from somewhere else. He's got a box called the TARDIS that's bigger on the inside and can travel anywhere in time and space. I ran away with him and we've been running ever since.

The Doctor is back, so are my childhood memories
26 March 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As a child I used to love the Dr Who series and apparently I used to hide behind the sofa whenever the Daleks appeared. I think it must have been the voice. But over time the whole idea lost so much of its charm that it became a real pain to watch.

Well all that has changed, Every nostalgic moment I ever had about the doctor has come flooding back with this highly enjoyable reanimation of a childhood favourite, even though I am now well into my thirties.

Christopher Eccleston is great in the lead and Billy Piper makes the archetypal sidekick. This new incarnation is full of the humour and tongue in cheek appeal that I hoped it would be. I just hope it keeps going as it started.

I have to give this a ten even if it's just because it's filmed in my home town of Cardiff, If not for the fact that is gives me a glimmer of what I liked in this series from when I was a very small child.

Thanks to everyone involved and keep it coming.
