A BBC production since 1963, Doctor Who is the “longest running sci-fi series ever” per Guinness Book of Records. The Doctor, a mysterious alien time traveler, along with his companion, travels through time and space in the TARDIS, which appears from the exterior to be a 1950’s blue police box.
The transition from one actor to another is written into the plot of the show as “regeneration,” whereby the Doctor takes on a new body and, to some extent, a new personality, but always represents the same character.
His companions are usually humans, as he has found a fascination with planet Earth. He often finds events that pique his curiosity as he tries to prevent evil forces from harming innocent people or changing history, using only his ingenuity and minimal resources, such as his versatile sonic screwdriver. Winner of 8 BAFTAS, 28 BAFTA Cymru Awards, 6 HUGO Awards, 16 NTA’s, Peabody Award.
