Plot Summary: Doctor Who follows the adventures of the primary character, a rogue Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey, who simply goes by the name “The Doctor”. He fled from Gallifrey in a stolen TARDIS – “Time and Relative Dimension in Space” – a machine which allows him to travel across time and space. The TARDIS has a “chameleon circuit” which normally allows the machine to take on the appearance of local objects as a disguise. However, the Doctor’s TARDIS remains fixed as a blue British police box due to a malfunction in the chameleon circuit. The Doctor rarely travels alone and often brings one or more companions to share these adventures. His companions are usually humans, as he has found a fascination with planet Earth. He often finds events that pique his curiosity as he tries to prevent evil forces from harming innocent people or changing history, using only his ingenuity and minimal resources, such as his versatile sonic screwdriver. As a Time Lord, the Doctor has the ability to regenerate when his body is mortally damaged, taking on a new appearance and personality. The Doctor has gained numerous recurring enemies during his travels, including the Daleks, the Cybermen, and the Master, another renegade Time Lord.
