Doctor Who Actors List
Doctor Who Actors All Time List
Doctor Who is a British SciFi TV series based around “The Doctor”, who is a Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey. The Doctor travels through space and time in a TARDIS, which looks like a Police Box on the outside but is much bigger on the inside. The Doctor “regenerates” from time to time, taking on a new physical form and personality. All Doctor Who actors before Jodie Whittaker became the Doctor, and first “Time lady”, in 2017 were men. The iconic Dr Who theme music, composed by Australian Ron Grainer and produced by Delia Derbyshire at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop in 1963 is played at the start of each episode.
