Doctor Who - The Classic Series (1963-1989) chronicles the low budget adventures through time and space of the first eight incarnations of the Doctor, an extraterrestrial mad man with a box, and his ever changing rota of (usually female) companions. The series originally ran for 26 years on the BBC until it was finally cancelled in 1989. It was briefly revived as a TV movie in 1996 before coming back full time in 2005. Despite its cheesy special effects and cardboard sets, Doctor Who has managed to endure for almost half a century thanks to its imaginative and witty scripts, memorable villains and, in the character of the Doctor, the greatest science fiction hero of all time.

The early black and white episodes for the first two Doctors are currently being reviewed by John Geoffrion. The Second through Eighth Doctor reviews, starting with "The Dominators," were written by Mark Greig, a project that took several years. We also have reviews for the new Doctor Who, 2005 onwards, here.
