Doctor Who returns to TV. On May 14, 1996 Fox Network is airing the two-hour TV movie pilot for Doctor Who. Here is some background information for anyone who's interested. Doctor Who premiered in Great Britian in 1963. It remained on the air until 1989. The Doctor is a Time Lord. He has the ability to travel in time and space. He is from the planet of Gallifrey. At sometime in his past, he was offered the position of High Lord President of Gallifrey. He didn't like it, so he left Gallifrey with a TARDIS that was about to be repaired. TARDIS stands for Time And Relative Dimensions In Space. This device allows the Doctor to travel anywhere, anytime in the galaxy. The TARDIS resembles a British police box (These were used by Britian so their citizens could contact the police if they weren't near a phone), on the outside. But on the inside is a huge vessel. The primary room is the console room. From the console, the Doctor can control every feature of the TARDIS. Also in the TARDIS is a cloister room, bedrooms, wardrobes and laboratories. The Doctor has one unique ability, that is to regenerate. When his current form nears death, he undergoes a complete transformation. A new body, and a new personality, but inside he's still the Doctor. He is innately very curious and travels the Galaxy in search of adventure and mystery. Along with his companions, he trys to help people in trouble. All of you who read this, I urge you to watch the Fox TV movie in May. This was the first Sci-Fi show I ever watched. It is a treat to watch.

(lots more info snipped) Actually, the show never made clear exactly WHY the Doctor left Gallifrey, although it was evidently under a cloud of SOME sort. When we the viewers first met him, he was an old man travelling with a teenager named Susan who was his "granddaughter." We never did learn exactly why they had to flee, or who Susan's parents were. (Her character left the series after only two or three years.)

The show is full of blatant discontinuities...but he did hint at why he left Gallifrey. He has problems with Time Lords in general, a wasting, useless, degenerate society, possessed of enormous power for good, and yet determined not to act for that good. To squander all its vast technological research in the stagnant inactivity beneath their impenetrable shield. He seemed unable to live with them in that state. He himself was always moved to action. So, he left. That's my take. -Javitt jjadili@unix.amherst.edu P.S. Any real spelling or grammar mistakes can be attributed to the fact that I didn't sleep last night. :)

Most of the Doctor's companions joined him in his travels because of the exitement. Remember Sarah Jane, and Leela? And that guy (dont remember his name). Also, The Doctor has returned to Gallifrey a few times and helped save the planet and the TimeLords. The earlier eps *(with Tom Baker)* he wasnt greeted with open arms. I believe its because the TimeLords's job is to watch the timelines and correct errors and the Doctor left/was banished because he didn't like just sitting back adn wanted to experience the lives he was watching. The Doctor was offered the position of High Time Lord *(whatever)* after he foiled The Masters plan to take over Gallifrey. He refused because he is not a beaurocrat (sp) and wanted to keep traveling. my favorite assistant???? K-9 and Sarah Jane my favorite enemy? Davros and the Daleks favorite cheesy monsters?? the ones from the Loch Ness Lake (latex forever) HOPEFULLY:: we will get the same cheesy effects from the series. It just wont be the same without it. my 2 strips of latinum donRI

I think that they should have decided not make it. They should have left it the way it was years ago. I think it is a bad idea to ruin a great show by making a remake of it. They should of left it alone.
