Doctor Who is a British science fiction television program produced by the BBC which first aired on British television on November 23, 1963. It depicts the adventures of a mysterious alien time-traveler known as the Doctor who travels in his space and time-ship, the TARDIS, which appears from the exterior to be a blue 1950s police box (phone booth). The Doctor and his companions explore time and space, solve problems and face adversaries such as monsters and daleks.
According to Sheela Kadam, "this award winning inspirational show is one of the longest-running sci-fi programs in the world and a significant part of British popular culture. Next year marks the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who. We're delighted to provide a venue for Doctor Who cosplayers just in time for Halloween. They put an incredible amount of work and effort into their costumes and props - look out for some great photo opportunities!"
