* ''Series/{{K9}}'' (2010), an Australian children's show (produced by a company other than the BBC) which continues in the spirit of ''Series/TheSarahJaneAdventures''. It takes place in a late-21st-century {{Dystopia}}n London and features an upgraded version of the robot dog that had been PutOnABus back in the 1977 story "The Invasion of Time." A single season aired in 2010. In late 2015 plans were announced for a movie to premiere in 2017, but no further official comment has been made since then and there is no indication of such a film being released in 2017; the series itself is considered to now be concluded.
* ''Series/{{Class}}'' (2016-), premiering Autumn 2016, this series revolves around a group of sixth formers at Coal Hill School as they deal with typical teenager issues : relationships, school life, monsters from space attempting to destroy all of existence... turns out that the Doctor traveling through time again and again made the walls of space and time stretch thin around Coal Hill, to the point where they are about to burst. As such, who knows what kind of monster might take the opportunity to slip through next. A more adult-oriented series than ''Doctor Who'' aimed at the YA crowd (therefore allowing sexual content and violence similar to ''Torchwood''), and produced originally for streaming on BBC Three. As of 2017, its fate is unclear after its first series due to low streaming and broadcast viewership numbers in the UK.

->''"Time! Time doesn't pass. The passage of time is an illusion, and life is the magician. Because life only lets you see one day at a time. You remember being alive yesterday, you hope you're going to be alive tomorrow, so it feels like you're travelling from one to the other. But nobody's moving anywhere. Movies don't really move. They're just pictures, lots and lots of pictures. All of them still, none of them moving. Just frozen moments. But if you experience those pictures one after the other, then everything comes alive. Imagine if time all happened at once. Every moment of your life laid out around you like a city. Streets full of buildings made of days. The day you were born, the day you die. The day you fall in love, the day that love ends. A whole city built from triumph and heartbreak and boredom and laughter and cutting your toenails. It's the best place you will ever be. Time is a structure relative to ourselves. Time is the space made by our lives where we stand together, forever. Time And Relative Dimension In Space. It means life."''

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''.
