Doctor Who is honestly one of the best shows on television. These adventures of a time-traveling alien are epic, intelligent, and emotional. When you factor in great actors, (eventually) gripping special effects, and mind- bending story lines, it only gets better.
The casting in this show is perfect. Every time you get attached to a specific Doctor, you feel as though no one will ever replace him in your mind. But that happens three times. Each Doctor is better that the last, and most of the supporting roles are excellent as well. But it's the story that elevated it to a whole new level.
This is a continuation of the Doctor Who TV show that ended in the 80s, but it stands perfectly well on its own without any foreknowledge. A time- traveling man who flies a time machine runs around the universe saving people and getting into adventures. As basic as that sounds, know that it gets complicated fast. And that's not bad. As long as you can power through the somewhat cheesy first season, one of the best programs on television awaits.
