Doctor Who

The British science fiction cult series was refreshed after its temporary withdrawal in 1989 by the BBC completely for the 21st century and back in 2005 returned to the screen. The Doctor looks and seems human. The Doctor is good-looking, sexy and witty, and could be mistaken for just another person in the street. A mysterious "doctor" travels through space and time with the help of a machine that looks like an old British police emergency cell, fighting against malevolent aliens and saving needy beings to entire peoples or even universes. If the doctor is killed in his adventures, he revives in a new shape and with a new character, so that the series can be continued again and again with new protagonists. In order not to get lonely on his travels through time and the universe, the Doctor always takes along companions who support him in his adventures and over several episodes and seasons. Most of these are humans from Earth, but sometimes also humanoid creatures from other planets, even a robot dog. "Doctor Who" is an important part of British pop culture and the "Guinness Book of Records" as the longest running and most successful science fiction series in the world, measured by ratings and distribution through other media.
