Sci-fi 50: The Doctor

July 31, 2012 | 6:19 p.m.

The Doctor, "Doctor Who" (1963): The Time Lord first graced the small screen in 1963. Since then, 11 actors (most recently Matt Smith) have portrayed the time-traveling, two-hearted extraterrestrial, each time reincarnating as the same lonely soul but with a new face, wardrobe and set of eccentricities. Certainly a wild card, the Doctor (David Tennant above) is accompanied by an ever-changing slate of companions on a spaceship that rarely lands at its intended target (in space or time). But regardless of the chaos his nomadic life brings, the Doctor can be depended on to defend Earth from alien invaders and, when needed, from itself. (Adrian Rogers / BBC)
