Doctor Who is currently the longest running and most successful science fiction television series of all time. Produced in Great Britain by the BBC, the programme depicts the adventures of a time travelling, humanoid alien known as the Doctor.
In his travels through time, the Doctor regularly encounters a number of monsters and aliens that he must conquer and defeat - the quantum-locked alien killers the Weeping Angels, the emotionally inhibited Cybermen, the advanced race of reptilian humanoids known as the Silurians and the aggressive clone-warrior race from Sontar, the Sontarans.
Another of Doctor Who’s most famous foes, the merciless Daleks, first appeared in the cult television series in 1963, when the time travelling, humanoid alien known as the Doctor first encountered the robot race on the radiation soaked planet of Skaro, waging war with the peaceful Thals.
Pursuing the Doctor across space and time, the Daleks invaded Earth, developed the Reality Bomb and tried to imprison the Doctor in the Pandorica. They fought the Time Lords in The Last Great Time War - a conflict so powerful and destructive that the universe was said to convulse. In an effort to save reality, the Doctor used ‘the Moment’ to annihilate both races.
