  • A great shows with deep and well played characters

    Save the by killing 10 humans yes or no? The series works this and other similar question out. Although on the first looking it might seem that it is a stupid comedie show when you have seen it for longer you recognise the under the funny fasade there is a deep background. The doctor is always pushed into difficult situation at the border of our current ethics. Although if you just wanna have a funny time you can simply enjoy the tipically british humour. All in all we can say it's a good show although in my opinion it has little to do with the original show.
  • 10 Timelords all going on wonderful adventures with companions. To fighting Cybermen to the oldest enemy the Daleks. I hope it never ends!!!

    Since 1963 10 doctors traveled through the vastness of time and space. Fighting the Cybermen and the Daleks and other various creatures that are as ugly as sin. It has been on for four series now, very long time. There is action romance and things of the like. and the two that were the best in my opinion is Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant (Who also played Barty Crouch JR in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire). Now I love how they flip out when they understand something. The show is just plain wonderful in every way possible! I mean it is so wonderfully written to the names to where they go. It must take the most creative mind to make this show all the names of all the people and the aliens and such, If your a fan of Scifi and you just want a good show with a lot of action and aliens this show delivers!
  • The Doctor and his pals try to save the earth and the universe from creatures that are out of this world.

    This show has been running for over 30 years and I love it. I mean the actors change sometimes but its great. Its literally out of this world and the creatures are just wow. My eyes are just glued to the screen. My father first got me to watch it 2 years ago at the age of 11 then I did not like it as much but now I love it because I can understand it. Science Fictional is just my thing it really is. There must be a lot of people watching it for it to be running this long. It just has to keep up with every generation and be able to produce more episodes.

    My Top 30 Episodes Ben
  • Simply Delightful!

    This is not the Doctor Who of your parents! But, boy what a ride. This show appeals to the entire family. There is mystery, action, romance, drama, and big scary monsters. The Doctor, the last of the Timelords travels through space and time in his Tardis. Most of the time Doctor Who has a light hearted feel to it. However, there are times when it does get quite deep. It is unlike any other science-fiction out there. It does not take itself too seriously, yet there is indeed a seriousness to the series. Just ask any fan. The Doctor is charasmatic, charming, and intense. He usually travels with a companion. Each companion has adds their own flavor to the series. In a nutshell, Doctor Who is a faced paced sci-fi show chock full of CGI, humor, action and adventure. It is well worth the ride.
  • Thanks for this show

    I personlly do not like alien movies or shows, but this one gut me hooked. I can not stop watch it. thats all thanks to the tenth doctor. his roll in this show is great. I love the character so very much. the show is allways very exaiting and you never know what or when something is going to hapend. I usually do not like like shows from UK, but they spend some money on this one and thats why it is a success. I have to say the if you only can watch one epesode you should see the one named "Blink". that is my favorite and i give it a ten.
  • Doctor Who is a good show, but some episodes either feel to complex or just don't make any sense at all. The ones that do are great, but BBC really need to think through some more of the episodes in future. I like it but it's not one of my favourites.

    Doctor Who follows the events of The Doctor, with his companions solving events in history that shouldn't have happened, either peeking toward the future to see what Earth or other planets would look like, as well as encountering famous foes like Darlek Sec, The Cyberman and many more.

    The story for the episodes sometimes feel well thought out, but the last episode felt completely stupid. 2 Doctors, and Donna being a half time lord? Seems to me that they've rushed it. It is very rarely touching, which could be considered a problem when looking at all the possible touching moments. The killed of one of the best companions, Rose, then brought her back and then killed her back of. Every fan was eager to see her return for more episodes, but sadly weren't given it.

    The special effects on this are simply amazing, I mean it beats some movie special effects, games and even some music videos to date, and thats quite something. Unlike some shows, you'll always find a little error, either something being the wrong colour or a piece of their body is missing. In Doctor Who, that doesn't happen, which is good, as they've taken time on it.

    There is another show that shows you how they made it, Doctor Who Confidential, not being as long but describes how they actually make the episodes, like the areas. This is quite good, but you feel like BBC have spent more time on a 15 odd minute Confidential episode than the actually Doctor Who episode itself.

    Overall Doctor Who is a decent show, that doesn't have too much action in it, and is even cornier than the 007 movies. Nontheless your not going to see anything like this on TV, making this worthwhile for the mean time.
  • The Ninth Doctor came and conquered and died saving the universe and his companions from Daleks. Regenerating for the ninth time, the Tenth Doctor is here to show you more of the secrets and dark sides of this universe. Past, Present, Future and beyond!

    I am glad that I was able to watch the series now that it is back on. New episodes are airing at the moment and I can not wait until the next one, which I think it will be the season finale. Anyway, I hope they don't end the series at the moment because the show is really good and fun to watch. To anyone who think they might like to watch this series then you should go to Sci-Fi Channel or the website to try to watch the episodes. To people looking for the Doctor Who episodes good luck and the network airing the series, keep the episodes coming.
  • Doctor Who is a Brilliant show that definately improves every year,series 3 & 4 are definately the greatest ever!!!

    well what more can i say...its BRILLIANT!!!
    series one set the trend for the rest of the show to follow,Christopher Eccleston proved to be a great Doctor,and Billie was a great companion,after series 1,David(fantastically awesome)Tennant stepped into his shoes and proved himself as being the greatest doctor known to mankind.
    Catherine Tate replaced Billie for the 2006 christmas special and proved to be very entertaining as Donna Noble,Freema Agyman replaced Cathy Tate as the awesome Martha Jones who was most definately a breath of fresh air for the show,and made series 3 fantastic fun,also Captain Jack Harkness(played by the awesome John Barrowman)made his debut here and has been a great presence on the show ever since his first appearence.
    Donna Noble made a great return in series 4,and so far is the greatest companion ever on the show(tied with Capt Jack of course)played fantastically by Catherine Tate(sure to be loads of Baftas going her and Davids way).

    greatest episodes(in reverse order) include- Stolen Earth/Journey's End,Turn Left,Silence in the Library/Forset Of The Dead,Poison Sky,Partners in crime,Voyage of the Damned,Utopia/Sound Of Drums/Last Of The Timelords,Human Nature/Family Of Blood,Doomsday,School Reunion,Parting of the ways,The Empty Child/Doctor Dances,and the great Dalek.

    i love this show:)
  • this show is about aliens humans and saving worlds. that pretty much wraps it up!

    I live in america where most people do not which this fabulous show. thank goodness the brits watch it. this show is a scifi but also has its funny moments. david .t has out done himself in doctor who. I love these last episodes. but I am so sad how long I will have to wait for next season. This show deserves a 10 flat out. My mom has an account on ascaffo. She introduced me to this tv episode, and sometimes she gets over excited about it. maybe even all the time. So ever since that I have became a scifi geek.
  • Doctor Who maybe a UK tv show but it's very under rated and it's brilliant. I'm talking about the new series from 2005, not the chrappy old ones.

    Doctor who is a great TV show with brilliant costumes and special effects. The whole story lines of each episodes is amazing and the main theme; Humans and time lord vs dialect. I'm really glad they actually show the doctor changing on the show and make it seem interesting unlike the James Bond movies where James Bond changes without anything in the script explaining it. The 1st season was awesome, the 2nd and 3rd were alright and the 4th was truly fitting. The last 2 episodes of the 4th season were uncomparable. It's sad to see all the characters breaking up at the finale.
    Christopher Eccleston was better as the doctor in my oppinion but David Tennant is also a good actor, no doubt. I just liked Chris as doctor more. The doctor had great companions, I thought Rose Tyler was hot.
    Doctor Who is a great and beautifully written TV show that is very under rated and not should be watched worldwide, not just in the UK. BBC have done a great job with this TV series, there should be more english TV shows like Doctor Who, no documentaries, just pure sci fi.
  • A classic continuation from the older series of Doctor Who

    Having watched various episodes of the 'older' series, I was quite excited when I found out about this new one. Right from episode 1, I have became a huge fan of this series.

    Filled with additional CGI, and unique storylines (along with that extra bit of humour that goes around) this show is a popular remake of the classic many of us grew up watching.

    From the Daleks, to the Cybermen, to the Sontarrans (spelling). There have also been numerious other species created for this show, along with more of the older ones being seen again (though in a new shade).

    The companions too are also worthwhile, and on top of that, Torchwood (another great sci-fi show) was created as a spin-off. What more could we ask?
  • When I saw the advert for this I thought what?Dr Who?But I watched Rose and was impressed so I watched next week and was hooked but when Chris left and Dave came I vowed never to watch it again series 4 has killed it cancel it now before it becomes hated.

    In April 2005 Dr Who graced our screens once again with Christopher Eccleston in the title role and Billie Piper as his assistant Rose Tyler. The first series saw the Doctor's adventures across time and space and was really enjoyable. Then when Eccleston regenerated into David Tennant I knew he wouldn't be very good. Series 2 wasn't too bad it followed the thing really but weren't as enjoyable, but it was getting worse every episode by the time series 3 arrived, the stories were really far-fetched. Series 4 was the worst yet and reckon David Tennant should regenerate and never come back because he has almost killed the show please regenarate him before it's too late, RIP Dr Who.
  • I remember the first time I was introduced to this show. It was the UK version and they were introducing the ninth Doctor.

    Doctor Who as long as I can remember was always at the top of my list when it came to Sci-Fi shows. It was witty and Adventurous. Although my history with the show doesn't go back to the beginning, I still got a nice fresh start with the ninth Doctor. David Tennant is amazing as the role of the Doctor. Through whoever had ventured with him it had brought comedy and that witty British accent to the television show. It seems that in every episode the doctor brings a new story into the ever going chapters of Doctor Who. I am looking forward to venturing on with the doctor!
  • The Doctor puts the Regeneration energy in hid hand. Later when the Tardis is about to be destroyed with Donna inside Donna touched the Hand and another Doctor grows out of it. Who saves the day. Donna is Part timelord and has her memories wiped.

    I think Russell T Davies deserves alot of credit for this. It was brilliantly written and directed. All the actors were great and it delivered the knuckle biting episode I was hoping for.

    The good stuff: The storyline and plot was fantastic! Everything fell into place in this episode. When Donna became part Timelord part human she called her self the Doctor/Donna just like the OOD said. Dalek Caan said "the death of the most faithful companion. Which is Donna, although, she didn't literally die only her memories did. It was great to see everybody together again and when they "fly" Earth back home it's a fantastic moment. The epsiode had me wiping away tears from my eyes. Their were really fun moments including when the new Doctor realises he is part human.

    The bad stuff: Davros was better, but not the best. Also I noticed when he said "this is my ultimate victory, DOCTOR" that when he said "Doctor" he sounded Irish. Freema Agyeman wasn't great either. Also Although I loved seeing everybody together I felt their was too many people too follow.

    With a little help from Donna Noble and the Doctor here's my favourite line:

    Donna: Oi, watch it spaceman! Doctor: Oi, watch it earth girl!
  • It's till on as far as I know

    I love watching Dr.Who and so does one of my friends. She and I think it's a totally awesome-sawesome show. We agree it's one of the best sci-fi shows on television. My favourite episodes are the Unquiet Dead, Aliens of London with it's part two called World War 3 and The Empty Child with part 2 The Doctor Dances.
    In this show one of the most notorious enemies are the Daleks. Daleks i think were some sort of Robot. I love this show and want to watch it all the time! I give it a double thumbs way way up and the acting as well!
  • Entertaining. Unlike anything else. Great format.

    Very entertaining. Very funny. Very different.
    One of the few shows my husband an I watch together.
    We caught it by accident once and were hooked. We now have our DVR to record every episode. I would love to own it on DVD, but it is very expensive.
    Well worth watching. A definate guilty pleasure.
    Entertaining. Unlike anything else. Great format. Fun for the entire science fiction loving family.
    The characters, villians, and heroes are fantastic.
    Funny without trying to be.
    I have never seen any of the originals from the 1960's, but the show is set up so it explains everything in the first few episodes.
  • This is a great show with great plots and great stories. It's directing is always pitch perferct. The effects are brilliant and the wrting make themes of this Sci - fi Drama seem possible. Acting on this show is always great from all.

    Doctor Who originally aird from 1963 - 1989 and in 1996 there was a television movie with the Time - Lord Doctor as the main character. In 2005 it hit our screens again with a new doctor (number 9) a new companion in the name of Rose Tyler and Show Runners Julie Garderner and Russel T Davies enthusiasm for the show made it a instant succes. When the original Doctor (William Hartnell) wanted to leave the show producers at the time came up with an interesting concept of regeneration where if the docs body dies or is injured he can 'morph' into a new one, with each one having different personallities. When it came back in 2005 no one knew what to exspect but as said above it was an istant success. Rose Tyler and Doctor No. 9 were soon replaced/ partened with Doctor No. 10, Martha Jones, Donna Noble and Capt. Jack Harkness and now Russell and Julie are leaving the show being replace by Steven Moffat and Piers Wenger. Old companions have also stared in the revive series in the form of K-9 and Sarah - Jane Smith
  • Getting alot better.

    While the old Dr Who series required a MD to imagine what the props would look like if they had money, the new series have no such shortcomings. The original Dr Who of this new series was fantastic. The one they replaced him with is well, a tad light in the loafers. He's every metrosexual man's wet dream, and the womens lub him because, well- he's just like them.

    But this slant is degrading now that the fruit loop director has been replaced with a "breeder". No more purple ties and yellow socks for the Dr. Who actors. Their new leader actually has balls. And it shows. The plot is more focused. No more pointless taco slapping, mangina pumping stupidity to destroy the sci-fi plot of the story. The last few episode's have been the best of this new season have been the best. Even with the metrosexual Dr Who.

    Luckily, Dr's can be replaced. Which is what we'll get to see next season. Out with the cherry mahagony hair gel, and in with the lab coat and getting down to business. I'm very glad Dr. Who isn't going into the same toilet as it's spin-off Torchwood. The same people are there, they just aren't having a pointless homo-fest every episode. Which is nice. If I wanted to see sodomy, I'd subscribe to mangina spreaders weekly- not sci-fi. So all in all, great stuff in the future. I see actual sci-fi in Dr. Who's future. Imagine that.
  • Don't Blink. Don't Even Blink. Blink and You're Dead. They Are Fast, Faster Than You Could Believe. DON'T Turn Your Back, DON'T Look Away, and DON'T BLINK. Good Luck. ;)

    A very witty and intelligent show with a few episodes that are quite stupid. While when the good episodes are on the show is the must brilliant TV you will ever see. I love Science Fiction, Drama, and Intelligent Comedies. This is a Brilliant mixture of all 3. The best Science Fiction show I've seen. Although possibly beaten by "The X Files" A Very Good Drama and Comedy aswell. The Doctor is always very witty. This is a perfect show. With some episodes that fail to please it still makes up for them 10 fold with some of its greatest episodes. Which my personal favorites are Blink and The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances.
  • The adventures of the Doctor and his various companions through Time and Space in a little blue police box known as the TARDIS - (It's bigger on the inside!) more often than not, saving the world while they're at it!

    This show is terrific. It has sustained itself with sheer narrative strength through two Doctors, three companions, and multiple "end of the world" scenarios - never a dull moment and always a pleasure to watch. Unending creativity in the Imagination Department, and thoroughly satisfying for a PG rated sci fi show which little kids watch, this show is packed with all kinds of fascinating aliens, characters, and personalities drawn from throughout time and space. They include: the Slitheen, the Jidoon, Agatha Christie, William Shakespeare, Daleks, Cybermen, Charles Dickens and Madame de Pompadour, among others.

    If anything, I would call this a space opera, for all it really needs now is a song and dance, it's got everything else!
  • Doctor who is amazing and probably one of the best TV show in the whole entire world!!!

    Doctor who is about Time traveller who travels through space and time with companions. Since the show restarted in 2005 there has been Rose Tyler, Martha Jones, Donna Noble, Captain Jack Harkness and Sarah Jane Smith. The Doctor's real name is unknown and hidden in the "medusa cascade". Doctor who is full of suprise fun and heart ache. Where ever the doctor goes trouble seems to arise ! The doctor always meets weird and wonderful creatures across the universe on different planets. The Doctor isn't even human himself. He's a timelord from the planet Gallifrey (which has been gone since the time war. He is the last of his kind!
  • doctor who is about a time lord that can travel through space and time. he always travels with a female companion and gets up to dangerous but exciting adventures in every episode.

    doctor who is both amazing and brilliant. it is more of a drama than a sci-fi show. the new series is much better than the old series. i like david tennant he is clever and funny. i didn't really like christopher eccleston because i always thought he was so fake on screen. there has been so many brilliant doctor who assistants in the past such as billie piper, freema ageyman and cathrine tate. i think billie piper as rose tyler was always the best. i don't like captain jack, played by john barrowman, or torchwood. torchwood is not as good as doctor who. doctor who is loved by all. i have recommende it to all my friends. i would suggest watching from season 2 onwards because season 1 is boring. but doctor who is a show that will amaze you.
  • Easily the best show on TV.

    The only show ever worthy of a "10", Doctor Who 2005 is an amazing example of a truly worthwhile time. With hilarous dialouge, perfect timing, and the some of the best actors ever, this show has it all. Those of us living in the United States may scream of boredom waiting for the show that is already airing in the United Kingdom. Doctor Who, starring the ninth and tenth Doctors, played by Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant respectivley, and a entourage of travelling companions such as Rose Tyler(Billie Piper), Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman), Martha Jones (Freema Agyeman), and Donna Noble (Catherine Tate). So sit back, relax and enjoy because Doctor Who will make you laugh.
  • good show, with greater and more diverse story lines than any other show I have watched for a long time but it does have flaws.

    i have seen most of the this series an feel that the show is not as good with Catherine tate (Donna Noble), she seems to be a below par actor. I think that they should bring back Billie Piper (Rose), she is such a great character.

    But this is one its very few flaws, the writing of the show is great, with Russell T. Davis and a few more writers they have done an excellent with the show.Never saw Doctor Who before (at least not in any focused way), so I was new to the concept. I have to say that the new show works very well. It's funny (it really also ought to say "Comedy" in the genre description; many plot turns are only acceptable because of their comedic value),it's making a meager budget go a long way. The human dimension is very strong and engaging, which is very rare in current TV shows.

    This show is a Gem, Keep it going with David Tennant at the helm of the show.
  • Fantastic!

    I never watched the old series of Doctor Who Basically because I wasn't even alive when the old series aired but I started watching this new series. I figured I would give it a chance, I had heard that it was corny but it's not. I've got the first series on DVD and I watch it over and over because it is that good. Christopher Eccleston's performance was amazing and then we got to David Tennant who was even better. This is one of the best science fiction shows out there today and hopefully it continues for years to come. I can't wait until the series 4 finale airs.
  • A great Adventure through time and space.

    Doctor Who. Probably the greatest English Television series ever. I never saw the original and when it premiered on American TV in '05 I thought "I don't know if I would like this." Man was I wrong. It is one of the greatest Sci-Fi series of all time. It is also very VERY funny. It can make you think of aliens in a different way. It also has a lot of action and adventure. Not to mention morals and historical information intertwined into its plot. It has the potential to last forever. If you haven't seen this show... what is wrong with you!
  • There's NObody like The Doctor (alien, extremely smart, funny, devoted to his ideas and understandings, ready to save the world whenever and wherever... no matter if the year is 500,000,000,000 or the place is somewhere... beyond ur imagination!

    I never was much of a tv-shows fan but Doctor who series started it all for me!
    I think the idea of the show way back 44 years ago was very genuine and so is now. The adventures of the Doctor always makes me feel thrilled with excitement. We get to "see" other worlds and a lot of strange and sometimes evil aliens, trying to conquer the universe or just the world in order to fulfil their dark plans. In this show, the Doctor is the one who has taken the responsibility to save us all and fight the "bad guys" whenever and wherever! However, "saving the world" is not the only thing this show offers. It's entertaining, emotional, loving, anything u imagine! :)
  • Still good, but missing the interesting episodes this season.

    So I was really excited when season 4 started, but I have to admit that so far it has not lived up to expectation. I absolutely loved season 2 and season 1 was also very good. But the stories told in season 4 are just not that interesting. The whole sontaran episodes I just found mildly annoying. This is bad course I really don´t want to say something negative about this show. There is one aspect that I really like though, and that´s the new companion. I think Donna Noble is a great addition. Like two mates having fun, instead of the cloying Martha who where just pining over the Doctor, simply annoying in the long run. Well there is still half the season to go so I´m hoping it will get more exciting.
  • I love this show so much! It's the basis of my life now.

    That summary I mean quite literally! My computer covered in stickers. My iPod TARDIS blue. My room smothered in posters. My pillow and bedcover. My folder. All my images. My art. My writing. Even my pencil case and everything in it. From 2005 without Doctor Who I would have had nothing. Including an obsession with it, anything related and the lovely David Tennant. Who, like me, is a factoid but so much more of one! There is rarely anything he doesn't know! I've barely seen any classic series.
    This is definately a show anyone can and should watch! Get yourself involved in the whoniverse and become a whovian! Because, trust me, even though you may have already read something, there's always some thing more to know! It's easy to empathise with characters and it's quite literally the best flagship show on television in all time!

    go Doctor Who from 1963 to present day with all your fantastic Doctors, cast, production team, writers and fans! william hartnell, patrick troughten, john pertwee, tom baker, peter davison, colin baker, sylvester mccoy, paul mcgann, christopher eccleston and david tennant!! did it with no cheating and no glitches! HA!
