It’s the tale of Doctor Who, a mysterious Time Lord who jumps around the universe in the Tardis, a time-traveling device that looks like a British phone booth, having adventures, fighting unusual foes and the like. Since its beginning in 1963, the TV show has featured a series of Doctor Whos and beginning in 2014 will feature the twelfth, played by Peter Capaldi, who takes over from the eleventh Doctor Who, Matt Smith.
The program is broadcast in over 2000 countries around the world and last year celebrated its 50th anniversary.
