Doctor Who was the longest running science fiction TV show in England, a span of nearly thirty years! Seven different actors have played the Doctor on TV, and two in major films.Tom Baker portrayed the fourth Doctor Who, ( my favorite ), from 1974-1981. Following the episode, Planet of the Spiders, the third Doctor, (played by the late Jon Pertwee), once again regenerated, this time into the form of the fourth Doctor! This Doctor was known for his curly mop of hair, his wonderful floppy hat, his incredibly long eighteen-foot scarf, and his love of jelly babies! His companions included; Sarah Jane Smith, Leela, (my favorite), K-9, Romana 1, Romana 2, Adric, Nyssa, and Tegan Jovanka.
The Master, Davros and the Daleks, the Cybermen, and the Sontarans were just a few of the Doctor's greatest villians.

During Baker's tenure as the Doctor, the show was imported to the U.S. and it's popularity soared. Douglas Adams, author of "The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy" books, was actually the script editor during Baker's 6th season, and wrote three of the greatest Doctor Who episodes, Pirate Planet, City of Death, ( filmed in Paris and guest starring Julian Glover, Catherine Schell, Eleanor Bron and John Clese!), and Shada, the rarely aired, incomplete episode that was the basis for his "Dirk Gently, Holisitc Detective" books.

The TARDIS , ( Time And Relative Dimensions In Space ), is the Doctor's time-machine. Known as an "old type-40", the TARDIS is able to materialize and de-materialize anywhere in the universe, and to change shapes in order for the Time Lords to observe other planets without being noticed. The Doctor apparently wasn't content with the Time Lord's policy of non-intervention, and "stole" the TARDIS from his home planet of Gallifrey! Although theft of a TARDIS was a capital crime, the Time Lords recognized the Doctor's good deeds, and allowed him to keep it, occasionally "sending" him to points in time, where his help might be needed. Unfortunately, the TARDIS is an eccentric machine, and during one of the Doctor's visits to earth, it was stuck in the shape of a British police box!
