    "My name is William Hartnell, and as Doctor Who, I make my debut on Saturday 23rd November at 5.15." Doctor Who is the longest-running science fiction TV series in history, airing initially from 1963 to 1989. The series told the story of the Doctor, a mysterious traveller in space and time, whose TARDIS can take him and his companions anywhere in time and space. Inevitably he finds evil at work wherever he goes… The series was postponed indefintely in 1989, but fans of the series would not allow it to die, and a whole cottage industry was created around original novels and audio-only productions. There was an abortive attempt to renew the franchise as a series of telemovies in the U.S., but ratings for the pilot were judged insufficient. In 2003, the BBC announced that, at long last, it would commission a revival of Doctor Who. The series, initially starring Christopher Eccleston as the Doctor, was launched in 2005. You can read about the new series here. Traditionally listed by production, the data on this site has now been amended to TV.com standards and lists each of the 697 broadcast episodes from the original series. I hope that you find the site useful, and that it might act as a springboard to the wider world of Doctor Who appreciation. TheOldBillmoreless

    "Black holes and Quasars" ...Watt On Earth was a short lived children's series as part of 'Children's BBC' and written by the 'Doctor Who' writers Jane & Pip Baker. The show starred 'Watt' (Garth Napier Jones) as an alien who came to earth to escape his evil uncle. Watt was heir to the throne on his planet and his uncle even sent his top henchman 'Jemjemah' to follow Watt to earth and terminate him. Watt landed in the English town on Haxton and be-friended 'Shaun Ruddock' (Tom Brodie) who managed to keep Watt's presence in the house a secret throughout the whole shows run. Shaun's parents ran the local newspaper the Haxton weekly and think their son is a bit of a oddball. Watt was over 300 years of age but in his human form looked early 20's. He also hadn't mastered his alien powers for starters he had back to front ears (Series 1) and upon his return to Haxton (Series 2) failed again this time the ears came out Green. He also had to ability to transanimateobjectify?? = turn himself into animate objects, but he could never get it right Eg, A clock that ran back-wards or square golf ball. That's what drove the comedy along his odd tastes in earth food. Eg Ketchup and corn flakes or Dog food and whipped cream on toast. The show ran for 2 series of 12 episodes and has always remained in my head. I had about 20 of the episodes on tape for donkeys years but wiped them several years back. Therefore Ive done a few web searches but a lot of this information is from memory so I deserve points for that don't I LOL...moreless

A team of miltary and scientists discover that a hostile alien force - the nDs - is planning to turn Earth into a breeding farm. The series ended inconclusively, leaving the way open for a second season. However, ratings weren't as high as expected and the show was cancelled.moreless
