The Doctor, a Time Lord/Lady from the race 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 the original actor, William Hartnell, in 1966).
For the first season, producers were fearful of alienating new audiences with references to the original show, such as names and events, so such things were kept to a bare minimum until audiences adjusted to the mythology. Even the first journey to another planet beyond Earth didn't take place until season two, which is unusual, considering the universe-trotting nature of the original series. 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've been watching "New Who" Since 2005 and I have loved every episode! Each story is exciting, fun, clever and generally fantastic! If you are a fan of Science Fiction, Action, Adventure, Drama or in many cases Horror then you will enjoy this show.
One of the reason the show remains fresh after so long on the air is the Doctors ability to regenerate, this is a plot device added when the first Doctor, William Hartnell, was becoming too old for the part and so changes the Doctors appearance and personality allowing the show to change it's entire feel whenever the lead actor leaves and needs replaced.
This show isn't just for children, it's for everyone, I would highly recommend watching this show to anyone as it is one of, if not my favourite show on TV to date.
