The adventures in time and space of the Doctor, a Time Lord who changes appearance and personality by regenerating when near death, and is joined by companions in battles against aliens and other megalomaniacs.
The Doctor, a Time Lord/Lady from the race whose home planet is Gallifrey, travels through time and space in their ship the T.A.R.D.I.S. (an acronym for Time and Relative Dimension In Space) with numerous companions. From time to time The Doctor regenerates into a new form (which is how the series has been running since the departure of the original actor, William Hartnell, in 1966).Written by
References to Doctor Who (1963) including the appearances of Sarah Jane Smith, K9, the Fifth Doctor, the Eighth Doctor, the First Doctor, Alpha Centauri, et cetera, were put in the series to connect this show with Doctor Who (1963) and Doctor Who (1996), and to establish that it wasn't a reboot, but a revamp and a direct continuation, and that Doctor Who: Rose (2005) takes place years after Doctor Who: Survival: Part Four (1989) and Doctor Who (1996). Doctor Who: Night of the Doctor (2013) is a prequel revealing the fate of the 8th Doctor (Paul McGann) and his regeneration into the War Doctor (Sir John Hurt), who came before the 9th Doctor (Christopher Eccleston).

During the first season, Christopher Eccleston is credited as "Doctor Who", as set in the Classic Series. Beginning with the second season - reportedly at the behest of the show's new star, David Tennant - the credit has been changed to read "The Doctor". See more »
In Season 5, Amy has a prologue that only exists in syndicated versions and isn't present in the original UK airings. It doesn't appear on home media (DVD) either. See more »
The series was perfect before the old writer, the newest season only has like 2-3 good episodes, the rest being horrendous, please either change the writer again or bring back the old one.
I have also seen many complaining about the new doctor, I believe that she isn't that bad as everyone says, she is somewhere in the middle in my opinion.
