Doctor Who is a British science fiction television programme produced by the BBC . The programme depicts the adventures of a Time Lord —a time travelling , humanoid alien known as the Doctor . He explores the universe in his ' TARDIS ', a sentient time-travelling space ship. Its exterior appears as a blue British police box , a common sight in Britain in 1963, when the series first aired. Along with a succession of companions , the Doctor faces a variety of foes while working to save civilisations, help ordinary people, and right wrongs. The show has received recognition from critics and the public as one of the finest British television programmes, winning the 2006 British Academy Television Award for Best Drama Series and five consecutive (2005–10) awards at the National Television Awards during Russell T Davies 's tenure as Executive Producer.

Doctor Who fans objected to programme trail More than five thousand Doctor Who fans have complained to the BBC claiming the ending of Saturday night's episode was ruined by a trailer for the next show. The on-screen caption featured an animated cartoon of presenter Graham Norton, host of Over the Rainbow. It appeared as The Doctor, played by Matt Smith, was making an emotional speech during the story's cliffhanger ending for The Time of Angels. A BBC spokesman said the trail "should not have been played out on Saturday."
The corporation conceded the "banner" - featuring an image of Graham Norton - which popped up during the show - should not have been screened. Annoying: a graphic version of Graham Norton popped up during the climax of Saturday's Doctor Who Around 5,600 viewers complained about the image which they say spoiled the drama as the latest Time Lord adventure reached its peak. The banner was plugging the edition of Over The Rainbow which followed the hit show, starring Matt Smith as The Doctor.
Well, the crack didn’t really just in space; it’s an image from NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope from several years ago. It was notable at the time for looking like a snake slithering across the Milky Way , but the crack is actually a “core of a thick, sooty cloud large enough to swallow dozens of solar systems.” But then last week an astronomy blog posted the image as its picture of the day , again finding it interesting for being a “ghost snake.” However, some fans saw the image and were reminded of something else: a crack (warning: spoilers!)
