Although the lead character was only a few times referred as Doctor Who, the closing credits from 1963 to 1979 still used the name Doctor Who. See more »
Doctor Who was my childhood. This show was, and still is, awesome. Right from the start, it was set apart from sci-fi shows at the time. This show was originally intended to be educational. But all that changed one fateful day in 1963. Yes, that's right, I'm talking about... the Daleks.
These monsters were one of the few things from sci-fi that could illicit pure, unadulterated terror in me. Other monsters eventually cropped up over the years, like the Cybermen, Sontarans, Silurians, Sea Devils, the Master, the list goes on...
In short, there is a reason this show has spawned countless spin- offs, a TV movie, and has lasted for 50 years.
It is because it is a staple of British television. Even cancellation couldn't stop this gem.
After 16 years in development hell, barring the aforementioned movie, Doctor Who returned.
