~Doctor Who. Doctor Who is a British science fiction television program produced by the BBC. The program 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, telepathic time-and-space-travel machine that flies through the time vortex. 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 civilizations, help ordinary people, and right wrongs.
