The adventures in time and space of the Doctor, a Time Lord who changes appearance and personality by regenerating when near death, and is joined by companions in battles against aliens and other megalomaniacs.
The Doctor, a Time Lord from the race whose home planet is Gallifrey, travels through time and space in his/her ship the TARDIS (an acronym for Time and Relative Dimension In Space) with numerous companions. From time to time he/she regenerates into a new form (which is how the series has been running since the departure of the original actor, William Hartnell, in 1966).Written by
References to Doctor Who (1963) (TV Series) including the appearances of Sarah Jane Smith. K9. The Fifth Doctor. The Eighth Doctor. The First Doctor. Alpha Centauri etc. were put in the series to connect Doctor Who (2005) (TV Series) with Doctor Who (1963) (TV Series) and Doctor Who (1996) (TV Movie) and to establish that it wasn't a reboot, but a revamp and a direct continuation and that Doctor Who: Rose (2005) (TV Series) takes place years after Doctor Who: Survival: Part Four (1989) (TV Episode) and Doctor Who (1996) (TV Episode). Doctor Who: Night of the Doctor (2013) (TV Episode) is a prequel revealing the fate of the 8th Doctor (Paul McGann) and his regeneration into The War Doctor (John Hurt) whom came before The 9th Doctor (Christopher Eccleston).

On the 2012 episodes, the title logo is decorated with a motif related to each episode's theme. On episode one, "Asylum of the Daleks", it was decorated with dots like the ones covering a Dalek body. On episode 2, "Dinosaurs on a Spaceship" it was decorated in green-like vegetation. On episode 3, "A Town Called Mercy" it was made of wooden boards, like the buildings of the Far West town on the episode. And on episode 4, "The Power of Three", it was decorated with a pattern made of cubes. See more »
In Season 5, Amy has a prologue that only exists in syndicated versions and isn't present in the original UK airings. It doesn't appear on home media (DVD) either. See more »
Too many promises!
The Christmas episode ended with a big cliffhanger. And it was not solved at all. Why the Tardis is throwing out the new doctor? How does she survive the fall? All this is thrown away like Luke Skywalker throws his lightsaber.
She is coping David Tennant's doctor without adding anything new to the character. (Except a funny outfit.)
Many storylines are filled with a teacher like lesson. Complete useless for the story, and therefore just annoying.
The doctor is the companion!
Many episodes are not about the doctor. She remains only a marginal figure. The companions are often the main characters here. It also lacks a matching opponent. A villain, the doctor can prove herself as a hero. It's missing.
And all that makes the show trivial and boring.
