About the first Doctor Who series

The BBC sci-fi Doctor Who series was released in 1963, which had twenty-six episodes. The series depicts the adventures of a Time Lord called the Doctor, an extraterrestrial being who appears to be human. The Doctor zooms through space and time in a special ship called the TARDIS, that looks like a cool old police box. Zipping around, the Doctor helps people in trouble and fights baddies who bully anyone weaker. Often, the Doctor is not alone, but has friends joining the adventures.
