Doctor Who is a fictional TV series that had been running in the UK since the 1960s. It features the extraterrestrial Doctor, who time travels across the Universe. The Doctor lives and travels in the TARDIS, which appears from the outside as a blue police box, but inside it is much bigger.

The Doctor appears in many physical forms, due to the fictional device of regeneration whereby the Doctor can transform when their current body is too damaged to heal. The Doctor has always been a man, but has recently regenerated into a female form. She is the first female Doctor, and she is great.

When was the first episode of Doctor Who?

The first episode of Doctor Who aired on television on November 23, 1963. The first episode was advertised as a new television series of adventures in time and space. Doctor Who was on television until 1989 and had a television film in 1996. It returned to television in 2005 due to its popularity.

Why does the Doctor always have companions?

The Doctor always has companions because they knew the Doctor’s secret and were non-human beings who traveled in space and time. The Doctor’s companions often saved the Doctor or gave the Doctor a different perspective on a situation. The companions were sometimes the reason that the Doctor sacrificed their current life to regenerate.

Who are Doctor Who’s greatest villains?

The Doctor Who’s greatest villains include The Master, who is Doctor’s Moriarty who are opposite of one another, the Time Lords who are the grandfathers of the universe, and the Silence who can erase themselves from someone’s memory. Other Doctor Who’s villains include Cybermen, Daleks, Davros, and Scaroth.

Weeping Angels
Scaled height comparison illustrations of Weeping Angels in relation to other Doctor Who characters

The Weeping Angels are an alien race in the science-fiction world of Doctor Who. They appear as beautiful statue-like, porcelain, angels but are actually silent and deadly killers. They can only move when not being observed, but because they move at such a phenomenal speed, the blink of an eye can be dangerous.  When they are observed however, they become locked in position and cannot harm anyone. The way to destroy them, is trick them into looking at each other, a state they cannot escape from unless an outside force were to move them. They are terrifying. Beware of empty gardens full of statues, the Weeping Angels may be watching you.

Weeping Angels have heights between 5’-7’ (1.52-2.13 m).

TARDIS
Scaled height comparison illustrations of the TARDIS in relation to other Doctor Who characters

The TARDIS is a time machine used by The Doctor, in the long-running science-fiction television show, Doctor Who. The name is an acronym, short for Time And Relative Dimension In Space. It amazes people when they first enter, because it is bigger on the inside. We rarely see other rooms inside the TARDIS except the control centre, but it is rumored to contain thousands of rooms including sports courts, libraries and even a swimming pool. From the outside, the TARDIS looks like an old police box which used to be a common sight in 1920s Britain. Nobody ever notices it though because of a perception filter surrounding it; it blends into its environment.

The TARDIS has a height of 10’ (305 cm) and a width and depth of 5.04’ (153.5 cm). It is much bigger on the inside.
