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).
In the season six opener, Amy and Rory meet up with the Doctor after getting off a yellow school bus. With these being the first episodes filmed in America, the production team wanted to use purely American icons as much as possible. Initially, the Ponds were to get out of a pickup truck, but the bus was used instead, as that color on the vehicle was an American thing, and they don't have that color of bus in the UK. See more »
Each episode has a pre-credits sequence, and a trailer for the following episode at the end. Episode one has no pre-credits sequence(except for 5.1 " The Eleventh Hour", and episode thirteen has no trailer. See more »
I remember being so excited on Saturday nights when I was a kid, waiting for Dr. Who. I thought it was the best show ever made. Then, I grew up, Dr. Who went off the air, and no one I knew had ever heard of it. Then I found out there was going to be a new series. I was a little nervous about it. Was it going to live up to the expectations I had carried around since I was little? Would they screw it up? Would the Dr. suck? Would his assistant suck? Would they create a more intimate relationship with the Dr. and his assistant? YES, NO, NO, NO, NO!!! This show is wonderful!! I love the new Dr. I love his assistant. I love the show. And I find myself excited on Friday nights now, waiting for the "new" episode. I'm just now seeing 2005 episodes, as I live in the States, so I'm a little behind the rest of you. I hope the next Dr. is as great as this one!
