An adventure through
SPACE & TIME
Discover the history of Doctor Who from its origins as a children's program in 1963 through the modern revival of the series that has achieved global appeal
Doctor Who in the Digital Age
Like Doctor Who, technology and media culture have changed quite a bit in the last 50 years. With access to the Internet and digital media, fans are now able to connect online in a global community.
Unlike analog generations that grew up knowing one or two "Doctors," today's Whovian is able to experience not only the current Doctor Who series, but revisit the classic serials as well. Our streaming, time-shifting and binge-watching allow us to consider the whole of Who as a collective work, and even to restore pieces of the story that had once been thought lost forever.
Speaking in Doctor Who terms, we can, in a sense, travel back in time to experience the series all over again.
How Doctor Who endured for more than 50 years as the world's longest-running science-fiction saga
Why some early Doctor Who stories were lost and how more recent technologies allow us to relive them
How Doctor Who has used time-travel and science-fiction to make social and philosophical commentary
How Doctor Who has evolved over five decades into a trans-media global phenomenon.
