Doctor Who is one of the most successful TV series ever made. Doctor Who was first released in 1963 by BBC. Since then, the BBC is releasing every season of this British Science fiction TV series.
The original Doctor Who ran from 1963 to 1989. It was so popular, that it began to gather a cult following from fans. In 1996, an attempt was made to revive the Doctor Who series, but it failed. Later, in 2005, Doctor Who was relaunched. Since then, it is released by BBC only.
Not only this, Doctor Who has appeared in many cameo roles not only in Television series but also in movies and comics series.
Till now, 13 actors have acted as Doctor Who. The transition of the older actor into the new actor is done very beautifully by introducing the concept of regeneration and incarnation. In this, the Doctor transforms into a new body every time his older body is hurt beyond healing.
