For those unfamiliar with the show, Doctor Who follows the adventures of a mysterious Time Lord known as the Doctor, who travels through time and space in a spaceship known as the TARDIS. The Doctor uses his intelligence and wit to defeat enemies and save civilizations, often with the help of a companion or two.

The Doctor has the ability to regenerate when he is near death, which allows the show to recast the main character whenever necessary.

Another notable episode included in the show is "The Time of the Doctor." This episode marks the end of Matt Smith's tenure as the Doctor and introduces Peter Capaldi as his successor.

Other episodes included in Doctor Who: Best of Specials [HD] include "The Next Doctor," which sees the Tenth Doctor team up with a man who claims to be a future incarnation of himself, "The Waters of Mars," in which the Tenth Doctor grapples with a deadly virus on a Mars base, and "Last Christmas," a festive special that sees the Twelfth Doctor team up with Santa Claus to defeat a group of dream crabs.
