Doctor Who is a British science-fiction television series produced by the BBC from 1963 to 1989 and again from 2005 to present. The program depicts the adventures of the Doctor, a Time Lord—a time-travelling humanoid alien. He explores the universe in his TARDIS, a sentient time-travelling space ship. Its exterior appears as a blue British police box, which was a common sight in Britain in 1963 when the series first aired. Along with a succession of companions, the Doctor faces a variety of foes while working to save civilisations, help ordinary people, and right wrongs. After a 26-year run on BBC, the series was cancelled. It was revived in 2005. Although technically two different shows, the "old" Doctor Who and "new" Doctor Who share the same storylines, characters, history, and in-series universe. 

The 1963-1989 series featured four to ten "serials" per season- individual story lines comprised of (usually) five or six television episodes. The 2005 revival series follows the more conventional format of having 12-13 individual episodes per season, along with a pre-season "Christmas Special" episode that airs on Christmas Day.
