Doctor Who In Detail
Doctor Who In Detail is a detailed guide to the British Broadcasting Corporation television series Doctor Who, the longest running television series in the world. First broadcast on the 23rd November 1963, this year is the 50th anniversary.
Doctor Who is a science fiction programme about a Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey who travels through time and space in a type 40 TARDIS that looks like a 1960's London police box. The Doctor travels to different worlds, and different time periods, and fights various monsters and villains, often aided by travelling companions.
So far eleven actors have portrayed the Doctor on-screen in the television series. Being a Time Lord the Doctor has the ability to regenerate into a new body when the old body becomes too worn out or becomes badly injured.
