He's a British science fiction television hero. An eccentric humanoid alien that goes by the name the Doctor having adventures through time and space, traveling in his space ship called the Tardis. An acronym for Time And Relative Dimension In Space, which resembles an old, blue police box. With companions, he travels any where in time and space, rights wrongs, and saves the day.
I remember watching this show as a child on PBS. Now, I catch it when I visit my family in Canada or in spurts on the space channel. At least until I found whole episodes listed on--you guessed it--youtube.
Every time I start writing a sci-fi story at some point I begin to question if I'm getting too far fetched. I ask myself, "Is this believable?" Then I watch Doctor Who. With good writing and great story planning anything is believable.
So, I've spent some time catching up on episodes I've missed and even had the chance to introduce the next generation of fans to him. My sons watched BLINK with the weeping angels and thought the concept fabulous. My five year old has spent the day moving my small garden gargoyles around the house so he can freak my ten year old out. LOL
Here's the first part of that episode.
