And then Star Trek: The Next Generation premiered and I no longer had to settle for Doctor Who. Soon, the BBC cancelled Doctor Who, but at that point I'd stopped paying attention. Meanwhile, here in the States, we had Deep Space Nine, X-Files, Lost, and a host of other shows to satisfy our nerd passion.
But at some point, sci fi became less about gathering the whole family together to watch something and more and more adult (contrast the original Battlestar Galactica with the hugely popular remake). This is where Doctor Who returns. When the BBC brought back Doctor Who in 2005, it filled the family-friendly niche in television sci fi that had been missing since the end of Star Trek: Voyager.
Best of all, though, Doctor Who is awesome. It's funny, scary, exciting. It is all things at once. The premise is brilliant: the smartest guy in the room travels anywhere and anytime in his time machine to right wrongs. Check it out--it's worth your time.
