Although not quiet old enough to have watched this show since it began in 1963, I can recall seeing many iconic episodes over the years until its decline and temporary end in 1989. An attempt was made to bring the show back in 1996, with a TV movie, but that failed when American companies pulled out of the deal. After the rights returned fully to the BBC a very successful and well made revival was launched and I have watched every episode since then, as well as enjoying many episodes that are still available from the earlier era too.
This is a fan made tribute video that captures the essence of a great TV show now in its 50th year. The storylines celebrate all that is good about human life, while constantly battling all that comes against it. It is the story of one man, The Doctor, an alien of human appearance, a Time Lord, from the planet Gallifrey, who long ago stole a TARDIS, a time machine which is disguised as a Police Box from a 1960s London street. He travels throughout all of time and space, acquiring and loosing many companions along the way, battling aliens of every imaginable kind, always saving the day. When he is killed, as he is from time to time, he simply regenerates, taking on a new appearance, and carries right on as before. He is The Doctor!
