British Culture: Dr Who

Dr WhoOne of my favourite British science-fiction TV programmes is Dr Who. Dr Who has been produced by the BBC since 1963.

Dr Who is a space traveler and the show was originally intended to appeal to a family audience, as an educational programme using time travel as a means to explore scientific ideas and famous moments in history. However, some of the evil characters, like the darleks and the cybermen had children running behind their sofa scared stiff.
So far there have been 12 different actors playing the role of Doctor Who, and although their personalities have changed over time there are some basic traits that remain the same. The Dr has a deep sense of moral justice and he values the human emotions of love, courage and bravery. In addition, Dr Who has one mission in life: SAVE PLANET EARTH AND KILL THE DARLEKS.
