I think it’s easy to say that one of my favorite show’s is Doctor Who. For those of you who don’t know it is a british syfy show. The show has 769 episodes, 31 seasons [including one television movie] and has been running since 1963. I discovered Doctor Who in 2004, before they began to air new episodes, and as sad as I am to say it, for I have no life, I have seen all 769 episodes since then.
The main character of the Doctor, has been portrayed by eleven different people – for the Doctor never dies. But if he is ever seriously injured he will just regenerate. For he is a timelord a special – now dead – race with two hearts, the ability to regenerate and own TARDIS’ – ships that when flown properly will allow the six drivers – the amount of people needed to pilot the TARDIS properly to head to any place in time and space.
The Doctor and his TARDIS – that’s short for Time And Relative Dimensions In Space – travel not only to different planets, and galaxy’s but to different periods in time. Which lead to all sort’s of adventures during times, of war and devastation – the second world war, Pompey – The Doctor is also known to have a companion, usually a human women in about her early to late 20’s, they travel with him and have all sorts of adventures. The Doctors most notable companions would be – Rose Tyler, Martha Jones, Sarah Jane Smith, K-9, Donna Noble and his two male companions Mickey Smith and Jack Harkness.
Now by now your probably wondering what this whole thing’s about, well I’m not sure if The Doctor has one distinct purpose, although he’s taken a liking to earth and defends it constantly the show does have loop holes. For instance, there is an episode in which Donna Noble is given the chance to change her life and avoid the events that lead her to meeting the Doctor the first time. When she does this it leads to the Doctors death, having not escaped a burning underground cavern while it flooded. Because of the Doctor’s death, he never meets Martha Jones, and saves her and an entire hospital – where because the Doctor was not there, everyone inside the hospital died. Which means the Doctor and Martha never travelled back in time to talk to William Shakespeare and end the apocalypse caused when witches implanted a secret code in Shakespeare’s “lost” play Love’s Labours Won. There for without the Doctor and Martha to stop the witches plan from happening, the present would have never existed… One big plot hole.
I guess all I can really say, is that Doctor Who is an amazing show that you should all have the pleasure of seeing. Because when it’s good, boy is it good. And when it’s bad… well it’s still pretty good. So watch it, and understand… That life is just a big ball of wibbly wobbly, timey wimey.
