PREMISE OF THE SHOW

Doctor Who follows the adventures of a time lord- an extraterrestrial belonging to an ancient race of people who have command over time travel technology. What’s unique about them is that they appear to be human. The “Doctor”, who is the main character of the series, travels through time and space and explores the universe in the TARDIS, his spaceship that looks like a British police box and was a common sighting in Great Britain back in 1963 when the show aired for the first time. The Doctor and his companions together fight various opponents and evils on their travels to save people and civilization. They travel through space and time which leads to many complications and finally ties up in one single narrative.
