Doctor Who is a British science-fiction television program produced by the BBC since 1963. The program depicts the adventures of a Time Lord called "the Doctor", an extraterrestrial being from the planet Gallifrey. The Doctor explores the universe in a time-travelling space ship called the TARDIS. Its exterior appears as a blue British police box, which was a common sight in Britain in 1963 when the series first aired. Accompanied by a number of companions, the Doctor combats a variety of foes while working to save civilizations and help people in need.
Doctor Who has been broadcast internationally outside of the United Kingdom since 1964, a year after the show first aired. The modern series has been, or is currently, broadcast weekly in more than 50 countries.
Tickets can be purchased on Eventbrite.
