Doctor Who is probably the greatest show of all time, and if you don't know what it is, there's just no way to really sum up fifty years of Doctor Who. But basically, Doctor Who is about the Time Lord, called simply, "The Doctor". He travels through space and time in his ship, the TARDIS, which bends space and time to look like an old police phone box on the outside, and be the size of an apartment on the inside. The Doctor is capable of regenerating, and basically, coming back from the dead, in a new form, should he be critically injured.
His last form was that of the tenth Doctor, played by David Tennant, --who was preceded by Christopher Eccleston, --my favorite of all the Doctors so far. The newest Doctor, in his eleventh form, is played by Matt Smith, the youngest Doctor so far. The Doctor only actually has '13 lives', --so should the end of the series is coming, within the next few years. And then we'll all just be miserable. Doctor Who has been running since 1963, --granting it with more longevity than Star Trek! In fact, Doctor Who made it to the Guinness World Record book for being the longest running sci-fi show in the world.
And now, they've finally opened the new series on BBC, and one of the shows will be about vampires! Well, they probably won't be vampires, so much as some kind of alien that drinks blood, much like the Plasmavore, in the episode Smith & Jones, when Tennant, as the tenth Doctor, first meets Martha Jones. The episode where we actually encounter the 'vampires', supposed to be aired in the early summer of 2010, though the exact date has yet to be officially announced.
According to some of the promo material out there floating around, the Doctor and his new companion, Amy Pond, land in Venice, which is protected by the House of Calvierri. There's just one problem; the beautiful daughters of the House of Calvierri are pale, creepy, and bodies are turning up drained of blood. The doctor have unravel the mystery of blood-drinking women who don't appear in mirrors. Are there real vampires, or just misunderstood extraterrestrials?
