Doctor Who is arguably one of the finest British sci-fi productions ever. In fact, this highly acclaimed TV series featuring The Doctor (a Time Lord) - just yesterday won the 2014 British Academy Television Award for ‘The Day Of The Doctor’, as-voted by Radio Times readers for their ‘Audience Award'

In 2011 a BAFTA television award for best actor was presented to Matt Smith – the first time in the history of the show that such an accolade was awarded. More significantly, Doctor Who holds the record for the longest running sci-fi series on TV in the Guinness Book of Records. The show first aired in 1963 to 1989, for 26 seasons. It was picked up again in 2005 and is already in its 7th season.

The premise of the show for those who have not had the pleasure of seeing it is about an alien time traveller known as the The Doctor who explores the universe in his TARDIS. Of course there are many enemy combatants along the way, but The Doctor is tasked with saving civilization and helping ordinary people at every juncture.

It has become a popular cult favourite in the UK and indeed across the United States of America. Television producers certainly hit jackpot pay dirt when they decided to reintroduce Doctor Who back in 2005. There's certainly no gamble when it comes to this show’s popularity. The Time Traveller seems to have it all figured out – much like a skilled card player employs blackjack strategy while sussing out opponents at the table!

Long may the show continue to wow audiences, far into the future!
