Everybody is talking about Dr. Who. It´s quite unknown in Germany.
So, what is it about?
erm, what?. next you'll be telling me you don't know star trek
sorry, just surprised it's not shown there. the new series's has been excellent, some amazing creepy storylines.
i'd watch these first. the new series's.
Doctor Who - The New Seasons
The original series span from 1963 until 1989 making it the longest running sci-fi serial, erm ever.
Doctor Who Classic
in total there has been 10 doctors. he is a Timelord from the planet Galifrei. he moves around in a time machine which resembles and old-fashioned blue british police telephone box, yes i know. the time machine is what is known as a TARDIS (Time And Relative Dimensions In Space), normally a tardis can change shape dimensions to disguise itself into the surrounding area it lands in. but in the very first episode that special feature breaks down and it's been a policebox ever since.
The Doctors 3 greatest foes are The Daleks, The Master and The Cybermen (watch out for those in the new series, they're now more scarier than the daleks. robots with abducted human brains with an emotion supressor implanted).
every doctor is the same person, only he looks and acts differently each time. different mannerisms etc, but his memories remains intact. he seems to get younger each time starting from an old man. but he can only regenerate 12 times giving him a total of 13 incarnations, he is currently on his 10th. tick tick tick. a timelord can only cheat death so many times. well he is over 900 years old and currently looks about 35.
if you got fast broadband, watch it, at least the new series's. (you may find the old classics too lame in comparision).
