Dr. Who

Thursday, February 20, 2020

Doctor Who has been a long-running sci-fi series on BBC, which originally ran 1963-1968. It was rebooted in 2005 & continues (with occasional breaks) today, after 12 incarnations with various men, & with the first woman doctor! Premise: “The Doctor” is a time-traveling extraterrestrial, from the planet Gallifrey. “ S/He is a Time Lord”, who appears to be human, & travels in which looks like a blue British police box, common in 1963, for the public to call the police or for the police The TARDIS ("Time and Relative Dimension in Space"). The inside is much, much bigger than the exterior. The Doctor tries to right galactic wrongs, & to save civilizations. A variety of companions go along for the ride. Built into the premise was that if the Time Lord is seriously injured, they are regenerated.





The Doctor portrayed by series leads in chronological order. Left to right from top row; William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Paul McGann, Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant, Matt Smith, Peter, Capaldiand Jodie Whittaker.

The inside is much bigger than the exterior would seem to be. The aDoctor has a ‘sonic screwdriver’ - some sort of multifunctional weapon(?). Because the Doctor is a time traveler, different incarnations have interacted.




Back in Time, Huey Lewis and the News,1999



Tell me, doctor, where are we going this time
Is this the 50's, or 1999
All I wanted to do, was play my guitar and sing



So take me away, I don't mind
But you better promise me, I'll be back in time
Gotta get back in time



Don't bet your future, on one roll of the dice
Better remember, lightning never strikes twice
Please don't drive at eighty eight, don't want to be late again


(What my parents think - What my friends think - What I’m actually saying)

So take me away, I don't mind
But you better promise me, I'll be back in time
Gotta get back in time
Gotta get back in time
Get me back in time


(When all else fails, screw it)

Gotta get back in time
Gotta get back in time
Get back, get back



Get back Marty
Gotta get back in time
Gotta get back in time
Get back, get back

(Proving over and over that compassion for all living beings
is a strength, not a weakness)
