In anticipation — or just sheer and utter impatience — for the Doctor Who Christmas Special on December 25th (or course), and finally catching up on the mid-season finale with the final appearances of Amy Pond and Rory (still shaking; heck of a moving episode), I wanted to share some of my favorite Doctor Who memes. But PractitioNERD, what the heck is Dr. Who? Well, first it’s “Doctor” Who, not “Dr.”
Anyway, Doctor Who is a British science fiction television series that aired from 1963 to 1989, before being revived for its contemporary run in 2005. The show chronicles the adventures of a nameless time-travelling, physically regenerating (as 11 actors has portrayed the main character) humanoid alien simply referred to as “The Doctor”. He is believed to be the last remaining survivor of a species known as “The Time Lords.” In each episode, The Doctor, along with different human companions, travel through time and space aboard a ship called the TARDIS (which stands for “Time And Relative Dimension In Space”), which appears to regular people as a vintage blue police box. Due to the near-50-year history of the show, Doctor Who has gathered a cult following, and in 2006, the show was designated as television’s longest running science fiction series by the Guinness Book of World Records.
