Doctor Who

A cult favorite about the journeys through the universe of a time-traveling eccentric, a cultural icon who has been portrayed by more than a half dozen actors since the show's 1963 debut on the BBC. The campy sci-fi fantasy developed an equally fanatical following when it was syndicated in the U.S. in the late 1970s, mostly on PBS.
