“All of time and space, anything that ever happened or ever will, where do you want to start?” that is a quote from the trailer for season 5 of BBC’s long show “Doctor Who,” and it’s the show in a nutshell (which is bigger on the inside).
The show follows The Doctor, a several thousand year alien in his time machine, The TARDIS. The TARDIS malfunctions a lot, taking him and his companions through time and space, plopping them in places that range from the familiar, to the fantastical, but always exciting.
In the past six years, The Doctor has visited many alternate realities and many historical figures, such as Vincent Van Goh, Charles Dickens, Hitler and Shakespeare.
He is also a man of many faces. Part of why the show has had such a long run is The Doctor, when mortally wounded can regenerate, giving him a new face and personality. But he is the same man.
I feel it is best to start in series one, but all of the seasons are pretty self-contained. Season six just wrapped up and is on DVD and the Christmas special is set to air on Christmas Eve.
It is a cool show to watch while waiting for “Walking Dead” to come back. It is available on Blue Ray, DVD and streaming on Netflix.
