Doctor Who

Caroline Hartland, Staff Reporter

It can safely be said that Doctor Who is spreading worldwide. And, because of the Internet, the BBC’s nearly 50-year-old show has gained even more mainstream American attention. Either good or bad depending on opinion, recent publicity is undeniable as more and more people hear about—and more stores sell merchandise for—Doctor Who. The show focuses on an alien Timelord called the Doctor who travels in space and time in his bigger-on-the-inside blue police box called the TARDIS. He and his travelling companions—humans and non—go on adventures and often save worlds. Though the show is very much in the science fiction genre, its humor, plot, and character make it popular with almost every kind of viewer and age group. Though the seventh season doesn’t start until next fall on BBC America, Doctor Who is always available in DVD form and on Netflix.
