Unofficial FAQ v1.06


The BBC television programme Doctor Who, which holds the record for the longest-running SF serial (1963-1989), concerned the intergalactic adventures of a renegade Time Lord known only as The Doctor. Together with his companions, The Doctor travelled time and space in the TARDIS, an acronym for Time and Relative Dimensions in Space. Though an alien from the planet Gallifrey, The Doctor was visibly human, possessing two special traits: dual hearts and the ability to regenerate to avoid death. After regeneration The Doctor would have a new appearance and altered personality.
