Celebrating its 52nd anniversary this year, Doctor Who is a cult production that has been shot from 1996 to 2005 only by taking a break between 1996 and 2005, and is the longest science fiction television series in the Guiness Book of Records. The series, consisting of 26 seasons and approximately 800 episodes in total, is one of the rare productions that BBC channel has been producing since the beginning and has become a very important icon in English culture. In this series, which is long enough to find a place in the book of records, 12 different actors have played the role of Doctor Who so far. Chronological order:
William Hartnell Patrick Troughton Jon Pertwee Tom Baker Peter Davison Colin Baker Sylvester McCoy Paul McGann Christopher Eccleston David Tennant Matt Smith John Hurt
The change in the character of Doctor Who, played by so many players, is explained as follows: - Doctor Who, whose own time has expired, explodes, turns into pure energy and continues his adventures with a new body. According to the story, the 12th Doctor Who was supposed to be the end of the cycle, but with the 13th Doctor Who (Peter Capaldi) fans of the series were given the good news that the adventure will continue. Wandering around in space and time without knowing any boundaries, a "Time Lord", known as "Doctor" and which is the last of its kind; Another feature of the series which is about running from adventure to adventure is that it was shot with a very low budget. Even in the episodes published today, it is not possible to come across a visual feast with magnificent visual effects or the subtleties of make-up art. Despite this, he was able to admire him as a work that has always satisfied his audience with his subjects, the way he narrates the story and the many characters he creates. Who is Doctor Who? Doctor Who is originally an alien. Traveling through space and time for hundreds of years; It is a peaceful character that brings help and wisdom to a wide variety of creatures in various galaxies. Because, in the 6th season, the phrase “I have not come across a single insignificant creature during the 900 years I spent traveling in space and time” emphasizes how much he cares about all kinds of life forms, even if what he faces is pure evil. Doctor and Screwdriver
So what; Doctor Who, who once lived on a planet called Gallifrey, is a soldier who fought in the greatest battle of space and time. As a result of the robot race, DALEKs, who is the eternal enemy of Doctor Who, surrounded Gallifrey, the war has become such a dead end; eventually, our hero doctor made a decision that he would suffer the conscience for centuries; he had to destroy his planet with the enemies surrounding him. In fact, the events have developed a little differently than that, but I mean it is useful to keep the CV limited to this in order not to miss your taste by giving spoilers. Our doctor, who was left unwarranted, took the punishment of conscience with him; his ship rides on TARDIS and rushes to the aid of other creatures in the universe, sometimes making discoveries, sometimes preventing history from changing terribly. Thanks to its appetite for learning and its light childish loveliness, the doctor, who managed to get out of all kinds of difficult situations without harming anyone, is a completely harmless tool that he named as "screwdriver" and gives information by scanning all kinds of objects to their molecules. What is TARDIS? TARDIS is a spaceship designed by Mackenzie Trench in 1929, which was put into service for many years to ensure the communication of the British police and the public to reach the police quickly in case of emergency, and which has the same appearance as the phone booths written with POLICE BOX.
This spaceship, which looks like a telephone booth where one person can hardly fit, has a large deck with a large 5-6 control panel, rest rooms, library, and many standard equipment that we all would naturally expect from a spaceship. TARDIS is so big and complex; If you try to walk around without Doctor Who, you will be lost in it. It should be that Doctor Who warned people who were going to board his ship for the first time by saying “It is much bigger than inside”. The word TARDIS has succeeded in finding itself a place in the English literature with the meaning of “the place larger than the outside”. In addition to the fact that TARDIS offers an environment that allows any living creature to understand the language spoken by each other, even though it is a spaceship, it is able to park very easily inside other spaceships and offers the option to open its door and look outside at any point in space; Having his own consciousness and feelings is also among the qualities that reinforce our admiration. “I wouldn't say it: when we thought Superman preferred the phone booths to change the head; I deserve to associate the lack of superheroes from our country, with our phone booths that “just cover the waist”! ” Another feature of Doctor Who's Travel Buddy Series is that a woman (rarely men also joined him in some of his adventures). So what; Contrary to James Bond, our girls are a highly resilient and halal-milked character, so these girls are her world herd chimneys. In fact, it is often the place to see them as their children and to call them that way. Because he is 1000+ years old at best. But it never shows. The doctor's companions are ordinary earthlings like you. From time to time, "Do these people not have the power to do it, they go from place to place in pursuit of the doctor?" Who pays for these? Who pays the SSI premiums? ”Even though I was filled with a jealous reproach; having the luxury of traveling at the same time, the fact that the doctor has the opportunity to leave his comrades back to time and time and not lose a single split spills me. Although we have met 13 different doctors until now; Only 12 of them continued the original story. The doctor character played by John Hurt is a completely opposite character to the doctor we know, and it represents the dark past that our doctor constantly escaped. Because this doctor is the first doctor who had to decide Gallifrey's fate in the great war I mentioned earlier. Considering that the remaining 11 different doctors have an average of 4-5 different companions, it does not seem possible to touch on each of them in this article.
Even so; It would be unfair to end this title without mentioning Clara Oswin Oswald, the last companion of the doctor. Because one of our adventures, Amy Pond, who was with her travel companion before Clara, was confronted by DALEKs and confronted with Clara by chance. In that episode, Clara saves the life of both the doctor and those at her side at the expense of her own life. With this self-sacrificing attitude and cute attitude, Clara Oswald, who saved her life by saying “Run you clever boy”, crosses her paths with the doctor she rescued later and in another place and in another place and mysteriously enters our life again. caused various emotional explosions in many dreams of the series. What is the Meaning of "Doctor Who"? It is possible to answer this question by combining two different answers. - Steven Moffat (producer of new episodes of the series since 2005) who shared his thoughts in an online discussion group about the meaning of the name "The Doctor" "Even if the word doctor does not have a special meaning in the Gallifrey language or has a very deep philosophical meaning, I find it reasonable to describe Doctor Who because it means 'wise'. In other words, we did not give the word 'Doctor' to him. He gave it to us. Although I know this is a stupid theory, I am proud of this theory. ”He answered the questions about the meaning of the name. - The question of Who has been clarified in one of the last episodes of the series. Again, I would like to explain without giving spoilers; Doctor's real name ensures the security of a top secret in the universe. The secret of this secret is “Doctor Who? (Who is Doctor?) ”Question can never be answered. DALEKs, on the other hand, are trying to learn this answer by taking over the doctor. What about DALEKs? DALEK race is a race that consists of robots and aims to destroy all non-DALEK beings on the galaxy. I am aware that I have made a typical definition of Nazism with this depiction, but frankly I suspect that this is the message to be given in the story. Because Doctor Who's methods of overcoming DALEKs always go through wisdom and sensitivity. “Considering the great trauma of Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany in European societies; I admit that I am very fond of making minor references to Nazizim while depicting societies that represent evil in works in literature and arts (especially in descriptions on social conflicts)
He is the cute robot R2-D2 of the Star Wars movie, another touchstone in the fiction-science world. Both DALEKs and those familiar with R2-D2 know that; the design of these two robots is quite similar. You can find many discussions, drawings and animations on this subject on the Internet. However, it is narrated on the Wikipedia page of R2-D2; George Lucas was inspired by two humorous typologies, Tahei and Matashichi, who served as assistants of Akira Kurosawa's 1958 movie The Hidden Fortress in the personality of R2-D2. In the design of the robot; Inspired by three small robots in the 1972 Silent Running movie by Douglas Trumbull. But since those robots are polygonal and box-like, they found R2-D2 to have more oval lines. So what; R2-D2's designs are not by George Lucas; Made by the illustrator Ralph McQuarrie, which Lucas included in the Star Wars team. This question was left unanswered, as McQuarrie lost his life in 2012 and did not comment on the "DALEK / R2-D2 similarity" while he was alive. Still, considering that the first Star Wars movie, A New Hope, was released in 1977; It would not be wrong to think that they have enough time to be inspired by many things. Doctor's Effect According to the statement made on the official website of BBC; Celebrating its 50th anniversary, 10.2 million people watched the Christmas Special Episode of the series.
Having a platform game released in 1985 for Commodore 64 users, Doctor Who inspired people who sometimes created products in the field of home textiles and accessories; At times, it has led to the preparation of special sections in the most popular television programs in the UK, and in this respect, it has gained a significant place in the popular culture of British and American. In 2012, the famous competition program called “Never Mind The Buzzcocks”, which did not hesitate to use England's sense of black humor and satire at every opportunity, devoted a part of it to the Doctor Who theme and after transferring the throne to Matt Smith after reviving the tenth Doctor Who character of that episode. "Retired doctor" had it done by David Tennant. There are also two other series, namely Torchwood and The Sarah Jane's Adventures (based on the adventures of the doctor's longest traveling companion, Sarah Jane), which are side-items or complementary stories of the Doctor Who legend. Even our new doctor, Peter Capaldi, has not been overlooked by the attentive viewers in Torchwood. Peter Capaldi also played the role of "WHO Doctor" in World War Z, the zombie movie that was recently released and starring Brad Pitt. Although WHO's opening is the World Health Organization, this coincidence has led to heated discussions among Doctor Who fans. I guess it would be a thrill to say more about Doctor Who and I finish my writing with my favorite word of the doctor;
