The further adventures in time and space of the alien adventurer known as the Doctor, a Time Lord/Lady who can change appearance and gender by regenerating when near death, and his/her human companions.
The Doctor, a Time Lord/Lady from the race 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 the original actor, William Hartnell, in 1966).
Several British politicians publicly supported the Doctor's sex change in 2017. In February 2017, prominent Labour politician and staunch feminist Harriet Harman was reported as having announced her support for the next Doctor to be a Time Lady. Speaking at a Westminster lunch, Harman said: "Of course there should be a female Doctor Who, but what we need is a man as her assistant. She has got to just tell him what to do, he will need that leadership." In July 2017, former Labour leader Ed Miliband also tweeted to criticize Peter Davison's comments questioning the casting of a woman in the role, describing Davison's comments as "the views of the 1950s". British Prime Minister Theresa May was reported by the BBC website as welcoming the casting of Jodie Whittaker as the first female Doctor. A statement from her spokesman said that she was "pleased" by the decision. See more »
On the 2012 episodes, the title logo is decorated with a motif related to each episode's theme. On episode one, "Asylum of the Daleks", it was decorated with dots like the ones covering a Dalek body. On episode 2, "Dinosaurs on a Spaceship" it was decorated in green-like vegetation. On episode 3, "A Town Called Mercy" it was made of wooden boards, like the buildings of the Far West town on the episode. And on episode 4, "The Power of Three", it was decorated with a pattern made of cubes. See more »
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.
