Watch Doctor Who (Classic) Online - Full Episodes
Doctor Who is one of the longest running programs on British television. It began as a family program with a science fiction and historical theme, and later developed into more of an action-based science fiction show. The Doctor Who universe expanded over the years to include not only TV episodes, but also radio programs, video games, comic books, and novels.
The classic Doctor Who series began in November of 1963 and run until December 1989. It centered around the adventures of The Doctor, a Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey who traveled through time and space aboard his TARDIS - a Time And Relative Dimension In Space machine that looked like a British Police Public Call Box. The Doctor was played by seven different actors throughout the course of the show, which was explained by the idea that Time Lords could "regenerate" upon death and come back with a new face.
William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, and Sylvester McCoy all played The Doctor throughout the classic series. Tom Baker is often considered the most popular Doctor, as he filled the role for the longest period of time (seven years) and was on the show when it first began gaining notice in countries outside the U.K.
Aside from The Doctor, Doctor Who also included a long line of actors and actresses who served as companions on the Time Lord's adventures. These companions were most often humans who would learn from The Doctor and help him in conflict situations. Some would only travel with him for an episode or two, while others lasted for several seasons.
Just as there were many Doctors and companions, there were also many different antagonists for the main characters to fight against. The recurring ones included the Daleks - the constant enemies of the Time Lords, the cybermen - robots intent on turning all organic lifeforms into more of their own kind, and The Master. The Master was another Time Lord, though he was not a pacifist or an explorer like The Doctor.
