The Doctor, a Time Lord/Lady from the race whose home planet is Gallifrey, travels through time and space in their ship the T.A.R.D.I.S. (an acronym for Time and Relative Dimension In Space) with numerous companions. From time to time The Doctor regenerates into a new form (which is how the series has been running since the departure of the original actor, William Hartnell, in 1966).Written by
The Time War was not the only time the Daleks were on Gallifrey. In Doctor Who: The Five Doctors (1983), the 20th anniversary special, a Dalek was seen pursuing the First Doctor and Susan in the Death Zone on Gallifrey. See more »
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 »
In Season 5, Amy has a prologue that only exists in syndicated versions and isn't present in the original UK airings. It doesn't appear on home media (DVD) either. See more »
I am one of the millions that have stopped watching it, and I have no joy in saying that, but under Chris Chibnall's course this show has become a laughing stock. The first episode attracted 10+ million viewers, that number has now sunk to less than 4 million. If I lost 60% of my customers I would be out of business, why hasn't there been an announcement that Chris and Jodie are leaving?
I would class the Chibnall era as 1/10, the episodes are unwatchable, Resolution was enough for me. Prior to that we had Capaldi, not my favourite, but in comparison he was good. The Tennant and Smith years were the greatest, as a family we'd have pizza and make an evening of it, now we just enjoy the DVDs.
Please BBC listen to your viewers, give us back Doctor Who, before Chibnall wrecks nearly sixty years of history.
