Doctor Who
Doctor Who is long-standing British science fiction television show that first aired in 1963. The series spin around an alien known as the 'Doctor', hailing from a race called the 'Time Lords'. The Doctor, a time-traveling, outlandishly brilliant being fights evil across the universe, often joined by human companions. Travelling in a TARDIS (Time and Relative Dimension in Space), a spaceship resembling a blue British police box, the Doctor uses wit, courage, and advanced technology to solve problems. Due to the Doctor's ability to regenerate after fatal injury, the character has been played by several actors over the series’ lifespan, allowing for changes in character style and physical appearance. Each uniquely portrayed Doctor offers different experiences for audiences, keeping the show fresh and dynamic. Doctor Who exhibits a mixture of drama, continuous storytelling, adventure, and comedy, garnering a strong worldwide cult following. The series, also known for its iconic villains especially 'Daleks' and 'Cybermen', has been influential in British popular culture and has been recognised for its creative storytelling and special effects.
