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
Although Steven Moffat created River Song, Alex Kingston was cast in the role by Russell T. Davies. Originally, Russell T. Davies had wanted Kate Winslet for the role, after he had worked with her on Dark Season (1991). But, Russell T. Davies decided to cast Alex Kingston instead. 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 »
When shown on Disney XD, some censorship is performed: spoken instances of the word "hell" are muted and the printed word is blurred when visible in its entirety, but not when it is partially obscured. 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.
