Doctor Who

Post by Rex on Tue Feb 12, 2013 8:26 am

Doctor Who



From Wikipedia:

Doctor Who is a British science fiction television programme produced by the BBC. The programme depicts the adventures of a Time Lord—a time travelling, humanoid alien known as the Doctor. He explores the universe in his 'TARDIS', a sentient time-travelling space ship. Its exterior appears as a blue British police box, a common sight in Britain in 1963, when the series first aired. Along with a succession of companions, the Doctor faces a variety of foes while working to save civilisations, help ordinary people, and right wrongs.
The show has received recognition from critics and the public as one of the finest British television programmes, winning the 2006 British Academy Television Award for Best Drama Series and five consecutive (2005–2010) awards at the National Television Awards under Russell T Davies's reign as Executive Producer. In 2011, Matt Smith became the first Doctor to be nominated for a BAFTA Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role. The programme is listed in Guinness World Records as the longest-running science fiction television show in the world and as the "most successful" science fiction series of all time—based on its over-all broadcast ratings, DVD and book sales, and iTunes traffic. During its original run, it was recognised for its imaginative stories, creative low-budget special effects, and pioneering use of electronic music (originally produced by the BBC Radiophonic Workshop).
The show is a significant part of British popular culture and elsewhere it has become a cult television favourite. The show has influenced generations of British television professionals, many of whom grew up watching the series. The programme originally ran from 1963 to 1989. After an unsuccessful attempt to revive regular production in 1996 with a backdoor pilot in the form of a television film, the programme was relaunched in 2005 by Russell T Davies who was showrunner and head writer for the first five years of its revival, produced in-house by BBC Wales in Cardiff. Series 1 in the 21st century, featuring Christopher Eccleston as the ninth incarnation, was produced by the BBC. Series 2 and 3 had some development money contributed by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), which was credited as a co-producer. Doctor Who also spawned spin-offs in multiple media, including Torchwood (2006) and The Sarah Jane Adventures (2007) – both created by Russell T Davies, K-9 (2009), the four-part video series P.R.O.B.E. (1994), and a single pilot episode of K-9 and Company (1981). There also have been many spoofs and cultural references of the character in other media.
Eleven actors have headlined the series as the Doctor. The transition from one actor to another is written into the plot of the show as regeneration, a life process of Time Lords through which the character of the Doctor takes on a new body and, to some extent, new personality, which occurs when sustaining injury which would be fatal to most other species. Although each portrayal is different, and on occasions the various incarnations have even met one another, they are all meant to be aspects of the same character. The Doctor is currently portrayed by Matt Smith, who took up the role after David Tennant's final appearance in an episode broadcast on 1 January 2010.


Disclaimer, I know that I'm not British and that I opened this thread as a non British fan, but to me, this show transcends not just countries but universes. If I had to sum up this series, I would say it is part of the sci fi trifecta. Star Trek never interested me. Star Wars had some of my attention as a child but also never interested me. Doctor Who fascinates me. If you're new to the show, be warned, I stopped watching all anime because of Doctor Who. Sorry, but it's true and it could happen to you too.

If you are new to this show, I would recommend starting out late with the Eleventh Doctor. Then if you like seasons 5 through 7(or 31 through 33), then you can go earlier in the series, to where it restarted in 2005, where Doctor Who went color(Season 7, 1970), or even 1963 where the who thing began.

If you're a fan, I would really like to discuss this show, or the books, or the comics, w/e. Anything you want, go for it. If it's a serious spoiler, use tags appropriately. Just keep in mind noobs, this show has a LOT of mileage.

So, Are you a Whovian(or Dweek)?

I don't know what
Spoiler:
Davros is, but i'm asumming that it's the dalek reality destroying planet fueled weapon.

And no, since "Reality itself" would've been destroyed if you do save it in the prime universe, in this case the one where Rose was born, everything is safe.

You are really picky with that question hehehe. It may be a plothole or something that will get answered in the future but i don't believe they are going to explain it.

Then i'd think this

Spoiler:
The darkness might be brought by the daleks, and since they are all supposedly kill by the second doctor, everything stops there

Beware that i haven't even started the fifth season so no spoilers please. I mean, i know the daleks came back cause of the picture but you get the point xP
