Doctor Who was first broadcast on 23rd November 1963 on BBC1 and is still going, albeit in a different style to the original or Classic series.

The brainchild of the BBC, Doctor Who was intended as combination educational and entertaining series for children. In the beginning, historical stories were alternated with science fiction ones, but eventually this was dropped as the sci-fi were far more popular. Great names associated with Doctor Who include Verity Lambert, producer, and Terry Nation, writer and creator of the Daleks. They also attracted famous guest stars.
Many early episodes no longer exist in video form, but all are preserved in audio thanks to fans who taped the episodes as they were broadcast so they could enjoy them again and again.
In the early days of (British) television, drama was done effectively as a filmed play. Hence the long scenes, static speeches and few cutaways. Just like the original Star Trek.
There was an abortive attempt to bring Doctor who back in 1996, but it didn't gain support from the money men. However, Paul McGann did voice many audio adventures. Finally the BBC managed to screen a 'reimagined' version in 2005, with modern special effects and CGI. Such shows are, however, expensive, and the BBC is publically funded. So far, they have had to limit two years to just 4 Special episodes instead of the more standard 13 plus Christmas Special seasons. 

The new version of Doctor Who spawned two spin-off shows, both also created by Russell T Davis. Torchwood was an adult show with swearing and sex, whilst The Sarah Jane Adventures were far more wholesome and aimed squarely at teenagers.
