Show Summary

"I'm the Doctor, run for your life!"

A UK television staple, Doctor Who was completely redone for the 21st century by the BBC, bringing the show back in 2005 after its cancellation in 1989. The Ninth Doctor (Christopher Eccleston) came and conquered and died saving the universe and his companions from the cursed Daleks. Regenerating for the ninth time, the Tenth Doctor (David Tennant) brought more secrets and dark sides of this universe. Past, Present, Future and beyond! After regenerating to once again save the life of a trusted companion, the Doctor (Matt Smith) is now on his eleventh incarnation. With new friends Amy Pond (Karen Gillian) and Rory Williams (Arthur Darvill), a newly revamped TARDIS inside and out, the Doctor is ready for more adventures in time and space.

  • Fantabulous!!

    It is a great show. Love it and watch it everyday.

    What is bad is that in every episode , some problem is there... and the Doctor solves it.

    There should be episodes when they travel only and no action is needed.

    Very cool show though.

    One of the best Sci-Fi show I've seen.

    I lost a bit of an interest when Matt Smith was on, I didnt think he was too good Doctor. But after Peter Capaldi was cast, and he became a great Doctor, I love the show again. Classic or new, no difference, it is all great, just some episodes are bit more silly than others but, well, thats how it is with all TV shows :)

    The change is what keeps this show going, and they do so marvelously every few years.moreless
  • Hope 2015 is better.

    Have enjoyed The Doctor for decades (used to rate it a 9.5), but lately, the stories have turned a bit ABC Family/USA'ish for our tastes. We don't watch Doctor Who for subtle lessons in morality or ethics. Yes - while those do play a role in any character, they shouldn't be the target subject. Hope they get off the "PC", "let's teach you to be a better person" train and get back to great story lines and pure entertainment.moreless
  • One more reason to love science... and Netlix!

    Okay, I will be brief, the show seems to be planned to the milimetre, and seems to have great protagonism and amazing use of creativity combined with a sci-fi sense of action. The doctor has become the lead character for my cousin and my father. It is just so well designed... they NEVER run out of intriguing ideas and emotional storylines... simply grand. The doctors will change, but the charm for science action is untouchable...moreless
  • The show is rather superb as it is going on, to be honest.

    Since the topic of these days seems to be Capaldi's reiteration of the Doctor, I wish to say this in my own terms. I do not compare the different Doctors or their actors because the show has stated on many occasions that the Doctor changes with each regeneration. That is what I believe some people have forgotten in their choosing over who's their favorite Doctor. I love David Tennant's version of the Doctor, but that does not mean that I don't care for the others or that I'm going to rant on them because I miss him. I do, but I'm not going to do it because that doesn't show any respect towards the new Doctor. The Doctor changes his looks and his personality; he changes his ALL. Nothing is the same from before. Now, with Capaldi's Doctor reiteration, I can understand that some people want a younger Doctor as they had it before. Yet, none of those who are complaining seem to understand that the Time Lords gave the Doctor (the 11th Doctor, or the 13th) NEW regenerations. That means he gets twelve new chances. So, it's like starting over again. He's older now, but then he'll get younger. At least that's what I hope the plan is. The show is superb, though I do feel as though they are dragging out the Clara arc a little bit too far. All would have been well, and calm, if they had ended it with the Doctor leaving to her to die peacefully of old age. Maybe the season this coming august will be her last. Other than that, I do wish they had kept the Master a male (even as a different man) instead of a female. If the Master can regenerate into a woman, why can't the Doctor? Though, I'm certain many people would be highly upset if the Doctor did indeed turn into a woman. I cannot help but wonder how Jack would react to that (I laugh at the thought).moreless
