The premise of the show is simple enough: it follows the adventures of a renegade TimeLord, the Doctor, and their various companions through time and space. The Doctor travels in a [[SapientShip living and sentient]] {{time machine}}, the TARDIS (Time And Relative Dimension In Space), and meets many foes, ranging from heavily armoured robots to killer microbes and pollen to -- well, members of their own race. Part of the longevity of the series is that when the actor playing the Doctor leaves, the show gets around this by killing their character off, only to [[TheNthDoctor "regenerate" the Doctor into a new form played by someone else]] (sometimes by someone significantly older or younger, or a different gender). As a result, the same character has appeared in the series from the beginning, but their new personality and new tastes give a show a distinctly different atmosphere with each regeneration, and the producers (and, often, fans) treat the introduction of a new Doctor as a relaunch of the series. The show also frequently changes companions (over its history only a relative handful have ever actually stayed longer than more than one season), and once again the change in companion is also treated as something of a relaunch, especially in the 2005-present era where the stories are more frequently told from their perspective.

A MadeForTVMovie aired in 1996, in which the Seventh Doctor returned at the end of his life and regenerated into the Eighth. This was created [[BackDoorPilot as a pilot]] for a revival, but although the Eighth Doctor became part of the continuity as a whole, no actual return of the series resulted. Between 2001 and 2003, Creator/TheBBC produced a series of webcasts which it considered in every way an official continuation of the series (insofar as the Beeb ever indicates what is and isn't canon). It is possible more would have been made but for a very exciting development on the television front: in 2005, the BBC [[ObligatoryJoke regenerated]] the show. This new {{revival}} series is a direct continuation of the old series, rather than being a ContinuityReboot, and the Ninth Doctor was a successor to the classic series incarnations. The revival series has radically upgraded production values (the original series is notorious for its [[SpecialEffectFailure often rubbery monster prosthetics]] and bad ChromaKey), shorter [[StoryArc story arcs]] but much more continuity throughout, and it introduced deeper CharacterDevelopment and romance to the series. As such, 2013 marked the show's 50th anniversary. The original show lasted 26 "seasons", whereas the new annual runs of episodes are called "series": officially, the show went from Season 26 to Series 1, and so on. Even subtracting the 16-year "interregnum," the show still holds the record of longest-running English-language sci-fi series, with its nearest rival being the 12-season run of the UK series ''Series/RedDwarf''.
