List of Doctor Who episodes (2005–present)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Doctor Who is a British science fiction television programme produced by the BBC. As of 11 November 2018, 846 episodes of Doctor Who have aired. This includes one television movie and multiple specials, and encompasses 282 stories over 37 seasons. Additionally, four charity specials and two animated serials have also been aired. The programme's high episode count has resulted in Doctor Who holding the world record for the highest number of episodes of a science-fiction programme.[1] In June 2017, it was announced that due to the terms of a deal between BBC Worldwide and SMG Pictures in China, the company has first right of refusal on the purchase for the Chinese market of future series of the programme until and including Series 15.[2][3]

Doctor Who ceased production in 1989, then resumed in 2005. The original series (1963–1989), generally consists of multi-episode serials. The 2005 revival trades the earlier serial format for a run of self-contained episodes, interspersed with occasional multi-part stories and structured into loose story arcs.

The story numbers below are not official designations; they are meant as a rough guide to placement in the overall context of the programme. There is some dispute, for instance, about whether to count Season 23's The Trial of a Time Lord as one or as four serials,[4] and whether the unfinished serial Shada should be included.[5] The numbering scheme in this list reflects an internal practice of describing "Planet of the Dead" (2009) as the 200th story.[6] Other sources, such as the Region 1 classic Doctor Who DVD releases, use different numbering schemes, which diverge after the 108th story, The Horns of Nimon (1979–1980).

Episodes[edit]

Ninth Doctor[edit]

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 is a continuation of the original series. 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 1965–1966 season each episode has an individual title, and most stories do not span more than one episode. The show also returned to its traditional Saturday evening slot.

Series 1 (2005)[edit]

The 2005 series constitutes a loose story arc, dealing with the consequences of the Time War and the mysterious Bad Wolf.
