warning: this post may contain large amounts of doctor who

for those of you who dont know what doctor who is, Doctor Who is a British science fiction television programme produced by the BBC. The programme depicts the adventures of a time-travelling humanoid alien known as the Doctor who explores the universe in a sentient time machine called the TARDIS that flies through time and space, whose exterior appears as a blue police box from 1963 London which is when the Series first aired. Along with a succession of companions, he faces a variety of foes while working to save civilizations, help people, and right wrongs. (thank you wiki). Doctor who is the longest-running science fiction television show in the world (eat it star wars) oh well now laineys gonna kill me for saying that lainey if your reading this, please dont kill me. ok i digress, doctor who started in 1963, thats right 1963. now your probably thinking how can be running for 48 years? Well, In cases of advanced age, mortal illness, or fatal injury, time lords (the doctors race from the planet gallifrey) have the ability to regenerate their bodies to create a new physical form. There presonality changes to making them seem like a new person. this process is called regeneration.So that means thats every few years or so they cast new actors to play the doctor. there have been 11 actors who have played the doctor (the doctor can regenerate 12 times for a total of 13 bodes) in order from 1-10 William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin baker, Sylvester McCoy, Paul McGann, Christopher Eccleston, and David Tennant have all played the doctor. Matt Smith is the current doctor at number 11. So yeah long time. more next time i guess. byyyyyeeee
