Doctor Who is a British science fiction television programme produced by the BBC. As of 25 December 2011, 784 individual episodes, including one television movie of Doctor Who, have been aired, encompassing 224 stories. Additionally, four charity specials and two animated serials have been aired, and two short sequences—"A Fix with Sontarans" and "Attack of the Graske"—were produced and involved the interaction of a viewer; the former was a segment of Jim'll Fix It and the latter was a fully interactive adventure. The show's high episode count resulted in Doctor Who holding the world record for the highest number of episodes for a science-fiction programme. For comparison, the Guinness World Record holder for the highest number of consecutive episodes, Smallville, aired 218 episodes.
Doctor Who ceased airing in 1989 and began again in 2005. Each story in the original series (1963–1989) is a multi-episode serial, with two exceptions: the 1965 cutaway episode "Mission to the Unknown"; and the 20th anniversary story The Five Doctors. The characters in the column after the serial titles indicate the code used by the production team to designate the serial, where applicable, and are followed either by the titles of the individual episodes where given or by the number of episodes otherwise. Unless otherwise noted, episodes in this period are 25 minutes long. During the early seasons of the programme most serials were linked together and one would usually lead directly into the next. Starting with the 2005 revival, the production team abandoned the traditional serial format for a largely self-contained episodic format with occasional multi-part stories and loose story arcs. Unless otherwise noted, the new episodes are 45 minutes long.
Due to the BBC's 1970s junking policy, 106 episodes from the 1960s are missing, with the result that 27 serials are incomplete, although all of these still exist as audio recordings, and some have been reconstructed. In the first two seasons and most of the third, each episode of a serial had an individual title; no serial had an overall on-screen title until The Savages. The serial titles given below are the most common title for the serials as a whole, used in sources such as the Doctor Who Reference Guide and the BBC's classic episode guide, and are generally those used for commercial release. The practice of individually titled episodes resurfaced with the show's 2005 revival, when Doctor Who's serial nature was abandoned in favour of an episodic format.
The three-digit story numbers are not official designations but are merely to serve as a guide to where the story stands in the overall context of the programme. There is some dispute about, for example, whether to count Season 23's The Trial of a Time Lord as one or four serials, and whether the uncompleted Shada should be included. The numbering scheme used here reflects the current internal practice of describing "Planet of the Dead" (2009) as the 200th story, used in the official magazine's 407th issue. Other sources, such as the Region 1 DVDs of classic Doctor Who serials, use different numbering schemes which diverge after the 108th story, The Horns of Nimon (1979–1980).
The first incarnation of the Doctor was portrayed by William Hartnell. During Hartnell's tenure, the Doctor visited a mixture of stories set in the future and in historical events that had no extraterrestrial influence, such as fifteenth century Mesoamerica. In his last story, The Tenth Planet, the Doctor gradually grew weaker to the point of collapsing at the end of the fourth episode, leading to his regeneration.

The Second Doctor was portrayed by Patrick Troughton, whose serials were more action-oriented than those of his predecessor. He retained the role until the last episode of The War Games when members of the Doctor's race, the Time Lords, put him on trial for breaking the laws of time and forced him to regenerate.
Peter Bryant joined as associate producer for The Faceless Ones, and replaced Gerry Davis as script editor for the last four episodes of The Evil of the Daleks.

The Third Doctor was portrayed by Jon Pertwee. Sentenced to exile on Earth and forcibly regenerated at the end of The War Games, the Doctor spent his time working for UNIT. After The Three Doctors, the Time Lords repealed his exile; however, the Doctor still worked closely with UNIT from time to time. The Third Doctor regenerated into his fourth incarnation as a result of radiation poisoning in the last moments of Planet of the Spiders.
Barry Letts took over as producer from Derrick Sherwin after Spearhead from Space. From this season onwards the programme was produced in colour, although some episodes now exist only in black and white. To accommodate the new production methods the number of episodes in a season was cut: season 6 has 44 episodes; season 7 has 25 episodes. The seasons would continue to have between 20 and 26 episodes until season 22.

John Nathan-Turner replaced Graham Williams as producer. Barry Letts returned, as executive producer, for just this season. Christopher H. Bidmead replaced Douglas Adams as script editor. In a return to the format of early seasons, virtually all serials from Seasons 18 through 20 are linked together, often running directly into each other.
Season 18 forms a loose story arc dealing with the theme of entropy. Full Circle, State of Decay, and Warriors' Gate trace the Doctor's adventures in E-Space; they were released as VHS and DVDs set with the umbrella title The E-Space Trilogy.

After an 18-month production hiatus, the series returned. Eric Saward was script editor up to part eight, when Nathan-Turner unofficially took over script editing the remainder of the season because of Saward's departure. The whole season is titled as The Trial of a Time Lord, and is split into four segments. The segments are commonly referred to by their working titles (listed below) but the season was broadcast as one fourteen-part story and the working titles did not appear on screen. Episode length returned to 25 minutes, but with only fourteen episodes in the season, making the total running time of this season (and subsequent seasons) just over half of the previous seasons, going back to season 7.

The Eighth Doctor was portrayed by Paul McGann. The movie is the only television appearance of this Doctor. The only production title held by this story was Doctor Who. However, producer Philip Segal later suggested Enemy Within as an alternative title. Lacking any other specific name, many fans have adopted this to refer to the movie. Fan groups have also used other informal titles. The DVD release is titled Doctor Who: The Movie.

In 2005, the BBC relaunched Doctor Who after a 16-year absence from episodic television, with Russell T Davies, Julie Gardner and Mal Young as executive producers, Phil Collinson as producer, and Christopher Eccleston taking the lead role of the Ninth Doctor.
The revival adheres to the original continuity. The new series is formatted to a 16:9 widescreen display ratio, and a standard episode length of 45 minutes. For the first time since the 1965–66 season each episode has an individual title, although most stories do not span more than one episode. The show also returned to its traditional Saturday evening slot.

In June 2011 the BBC announced that 14 new episodes had been commissioned to be made after the 2011 Christmas special, all starring Matt Smith, and later that month BBC One controller Danny Cohen stated that some of the episodes will air in 2013, though a reduction in the length of the series was denied by Moffat. In September 2011 Doctor Who Magazine stated series 7 will air from late 2012. The Doctor Who official Twitter account announced in March 2012 that it was planned that six episodes will be shown in 2012, including a Christmas Special, to be followed by eight in 2013. Episode 1, stated by Nicolas Pegg (Dalek operator) to be called "Asylum of the Daleks", will screen at BFI Southbank in London on 14 August, earlier than had been previously expected". Mark Gatiss, Toby Whithouse and John Fay will be writing one episode each, while Chris Chibnall writes two and Saul Metzstein will direct the first episodes to enter production. Guest stars include David Bradley, Rupert Graves, Mark Williams, Ben Browder, Adrian Scarborough, Garrick Hagon, David Gyasi., Jessica Raine, David Warner, Liam Cunningham and Dougray Scott.
Moffat has stated that the seventh series will be the opposite of the arc-driven nature of the sixth, consisting of mainly stand-alone stories. Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill will leave their roles in the fifth episode of the series, an episode which will feature the Weeping Angels. Alex Kingston will also return to the series for this episode. Jenna-Louise Coleman will play the Doctor's new companion, and make her first appearance in the sixth episode of the series, which will be aired around Christmas 2012. The currently planned broadcast order has a first episode written by Moffat and directed by Nick Hurran, followed by an episode written by Chibnall, directed by Metzstein and guest starring Williams, Graves and Bradley. The third episode is a Wild West adventure starring Browder, Scarborough, Dominic Kemp and Rob Cavezos and written by Whithouse, part of which was shot in Spain in March 2012. The Australian ABC iView website announced that the seventh series of Doctor Who will be released September 2012 in Australia. On 4 April, Doctor Who Magazine reported that episode 4 would also be written by Chibnall, and would be directed by Douglas Mackinnon.

There have been many Doctor Who radio broadcasts over the years. In addition to a small number of in-house BBC productions, a larger number of radio plays produced by Big Finish began to be broadcast on BBC Radio 7 from 2005, featuring the Eighth Doctor (again played by Paul McGann) with mainstay companions Charley Pollard and later Lucie Miller. Many more of these were released on CD than were broadcast on the radio; only those plays broadcast by the BBC are listed here. See the list of Doctor Who audio releases as a starting point for other audio plays and audio books, notably the list of Doctor Who audio plays by Big Finish which includes considerably more plays than were broadcast. The canonicity of these radio plays, as with other Doctor Who spin-off media, is unclear.

Death Comes to Time was released on CD by the BBC, and later re-released as an MP3 CD featuring the original illustrations. Real Time and Shada were released on CD by Big Finish. Scream of the Shalka was released in novel form in the Past Doctor Adventures series. While it has been classified for DVD release by the BBFC, a planned release was indefinitely postponed due to the programme's return to television.
In 1983 Doctor Who: The First Adventure was released for the BBC Micro. followed by Doctor Who and the Warlord in 1985 and Doctor Who and the Mines of Terror also in 1985. Later several other games were released.
On 7 April 2010, the BBC announced that the fifth series would be supplemented with four "interactive episodes", released online for free in the UK. They are described as "part of the Doctor Who universe", and will "go on to define the look and feel of future TV episodes." Executively produced by Moffat, Wenger and Willis with Anwen Aspden and Charles Cecil, the games are developed by Sumo Digital and written by Phil Ford and James Moran. Matt Smith and Karen Gillan provide full voiceovers for the digitised Doctor and Amy, both of whom are playable characters. Each episode offers around two hours of gameplay. The Adventure Games were recommissioned by the BBC for a second series in 2011, but after the release of The Gunpowder Plot, they were cancelled so the BBC could focus more on console games such as Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock.

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.
Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
