The fist actor to play the Doctor was the one who came up with the idea of having a new actor take his place in some sort of regeneration process. The original Doctor Who was getting old and his health was failing so he thought this would be a good way for the show to continue on without him.

 

It worked. Now there have been several actors who played the part of Doctor Who for however long they were willing to commit to the role or were allowed to keep the role (at least one actor did not leave willingly).

Looks like the library has some of the Tom Baker ones for hire.  But I had to specially ask them to get copies of some of them so its going to take a while before I can actually see the episodes yet.

Not sure how long it will be before they are shown, but the tv ran a trailer earlier saying the new series will be coming soon to tv.  Its the ones with david tennant in them they were advertising.  It looked quite good from what the trailer showed.

Just remember not to give us spoilers, or to at least give advanced warning in your post that you are going to tell us something that we may not already know. 

 

Some people like to hear everything as soon as possible about a program or story, some of us just like to wait and see it ourselves without any advanced information about the show or story.

 

I am one of those who like to go into a show with a fresh perspective and judge it for myself, then talk about it with others who have seen the show.

 

I do look forward to seeing the latest Doctor Who too though.

I definately wont put any spoilers in , espeically without warning first - I usually avoid reading most spoilers too.  They didnt really show much in the trailer - more just saying its coming soon but no idea actually when it will be yet.

Theres a doctor who movie on during the week but Im confused which series its supposed to be.  Its called something like "doctor who and the daleks" and was made in 1965.  But the guide says Peter Cushing was starring in it I think.  Which series was he in?

Cushing wasn't in the tv version. I checked and he was in at least two Dr Who movies. It was sort of based on the older Dr Who series.but I've never seen either movie so I can't really tell you much else.
Check wikipedia for more details.
