The Doctor, a Time Lord/Lady from the race called Time Lords 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 William Hartnell in 1966).
As executive producer, Steven Moffat received criticism for overly complicated and even indecipherable storytelling, with leading television critic Kevin O'Sullivan admitting in 2017 that he's "never understood a word Steven Moffat's ever written". 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 »
I've been watching "New Who" Since 2005 and I have loved every episode! Each story is exciting, fun, clever and generally fantastic! If you are a fan of Science Fiction, Action, Adventure, Drama or in many cases Horror then you will enjoy this show.
One of the reason the show remains fresh after so long on the air is the Doctors ability to regenerate, this is a plot device added when the first Doctor, William Hartnell, was becoming too old for the part and so changes the Doctors appearance and personality allowing the show to change it's entire feel whenever the lead actor leaves and needs replaced.
This show isn't just for children, it's for everyone, I would highly recommend watching this show to anyone as it is one of, if not my favourite show on TV to date.
