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
Russell T. Davies did not audition any actors for the role of the Tenth Doctor, as he had recently finished working with David Tennant, and believed him to be perfect for the role. Tennant was first approached about the possibility of playing the Tenth Doctor at a screening of Doctor Who: Rose (2005) at Davies' house on March 23, 2005. Contrary to fan-invented belief, Tennant was never considered for the role of the Ninth Doctor. 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 »
Season 11 isn't Doctor Who and my rating reflects that. The writing for this latest season is weak. The stories are weak. It's so disappointing. My skepticism about a female
Doctor was laid to rest at the feet of a poor effort. Perhaps a great female Doctor can be had (Missy was tremendous), but not with the current stories. What chance Whittaker had to make the first female Doctor stand out is buried.
Such a shame.
