The ultimate geek fest of our yonder days, Doctor Who is hardly a name alien to anyone’s ears. Meet the infamous Doctor, a Time Lord – in other words, a space-time traveling humanoid alien who travels these dimensions in his TARDIS; which, by the way, looks like those popular blue British police boxes you must’ve seen. Join the Doctor and his comrades as they battle a number of foes and help save civilizations as they go about their business. Alien as the Doctor is, he is very much your regular vigilante superhero, he loves humans, and he looks nothing like those hideous aliens you saw in Predator. The Doctor is also kind of a Deadpool character – he can regenerate and change his humanoid appearance when mortally wounded, and embark on new adventures right away.
From 1963 to 2014 there has been a total of twelve doctors – and this is again something exclusive to the show: The Doctor keeps changing, well, at least the actors do. Doctor Who has, since its surfacing in 1963, emerged as the staple British cult classic with millions of loyal followers not just in Britain but all over the world – the show boasts a dedicated fan base, numerous spin-offs, and video games, and there are even talks of a few miniseries roaming around. Twelve renowned names have played the twelve consecutive Doctors – including the super famous Matt Smith and the critically epic David Tenant. The Doctor is as eccentric as he is alien – and it is not difficult to see why the young and the energetic gravitate around the show so eagerly. In fact, the Doctor is so well loved by the Brits that The Daily Telegraph has labeled him “Britain’s Favorite Alien” – and all for good reason. The Doctor has earned his good repute through his peculiar persona, his quick wit – even with his handy screwdriver. Viewers all over the world have come to adore this character and not without good reason: Britain’s most favorite alien – Doctor Who – is neither cruel nor coward – he neither gives up nor does he give in. His relatable men makes him all the more popular – and we do love an eccentric character!
