Doctor WhoVarious actors who played the Doctor in the TV series Doctor Who (from left to right): William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Paul McGann, Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant, and Matt Smith.

On this date in 1963, Dr Who was first broadcast.

Doctor Who chronicled the adventures of an eccentric time-traveling scientist from the remote planet Gallifrey, home of the Time Lords. The Doctor, a Time Lord himself, traveled through time and space in his unique craft, the TARDIS, an acronym for Time and Relative Dimensions in Space. With an interior larger than its exterior, the TARDIS could take on various shapes to blend into its environment. Although capable of whisking the Doctor and his passengers to any time and any place in the universe, the craft was frequently parked on Earth in the form of a blue police box. Whether in England or in the far reaches of space, the Doctor and his colleagues battled a multitude of evils, including robots, monsters, and a twisted Time Lord. Certain adversaries recurred throughout the series, notably the Daleks, genocidal aliens armoured in robotlike suits who sought the extermination of life-forms inferior to themselves.” – Encyclopedia Brittanica

Dr. Who ran from 1963 to 1999. The series was revived in 2005, but who cares.

  1. I care. In San Francisco when Red Dwarf wasn’st 24/8 the Doctor was. It was always pledge week in San Jose, San Francisco, Oakland and some other fran I forgot. God know it was filled with them.


  2. I just meant I enjoyed the original more than the reboot. These things are subjective, I know.
