    Doctor Who is a British science-fiction television programme produced by the BBC. The programme depicts

    the adventures of the Doctor, a Time Lord—a time-travelling humanoid alien. He explores the universe in his TARDIS, a sentient time-travelling space ship. Its exterior appears as a blue British police box, which was 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 as one of Britain's finest television programmes, winning the 2006 British Academy Television Award for Best Drama Series and five consecutive (2005–2010) awards at the National Television Awards during Russell T Davies' tenure as executive producer. In 2011, Matt Smith became the first Doctor to be nominated for a BAFTA Television Award for Best Actor. In 2013, the Peabody Awards honoured Doctor Who with an Institutional Peabody "for evolving with technology and the times like nothing else in the known television universe." The programme is listed in Guinness World Records as the longest-running science fiction television show in the world, the "most successful" science fiction series of all time—based on its over-all broadcast ratings, DVD and book sales, and iTunes traffic— and for the largest ever simulcast of a TV drama with its 50th anniversary special.During its original run, it was recognised for its imaginative stories, creative low-budget special effects, and pioneering use of electronic music (originally produced by the BBC Radiophonic Workshop).

        I agree, Dr. Who is for children and is scientificly impossible so its more of a Science Fantasy show then a Science Fiction show.

    • Gregorio Cortez Garcia - The one and only, Star Trek Original Series. None of it\'s later spin-offs could ever hold a candle to this, their groundbreaking and life-changing predecessor. Not only a Sci-Fi show, but also a social commentary on society and the overall existence of mankind.

    • Sheila Eskew The cut series that changed the world! Spawned several new and futuristic versions, numerous movies, gave a nervous world hope for the future and crossed all sorts of racial, religious and political barriers. All in a three year stretch that went into syndication. That is some concept people really identified with. Margarett

    • William E Bales We need to bring back this series and continue the saga. The future of Galactic followers depends on it. What does the future hold as the series went through time? Can the future change the past? Can the past be rewritten? Let's bring it back and watch the followers begin the 2014 craze of the "War of the Galactic Battlestars". :) @Trutriciahelfer @kateesackhoff @OfficialSOHN

    Roberto Orci. It premiered on the Fox Broadcasting network on September 9, 2008, and concluded on January 18, 2013, after five seasons and 100 episodes. The series follows Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv), Peter Bishop (Joshua Jackson), and Walter Bishop (John Noble), members of the fictional Fringe Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, based in Boston, Massachusetts, under the supervision of Homeland Security. The team uses fringe science and FBI investigative techniques to investigate a series of unexplained, often ghastly occurrences, which are related to mysteries surrounding a parallel universe. The series has been described as a hybrid of The X-Files, Altered States, and The Twilight Zone.

    The series format combines elements from procedural dramas as well as those found in serials. The series began as a more traditional "mystery of the week" series, and became more serialized in later seasons. A majority of episodes contain a standalone plot, with several episodes also exploring the series' overarching mythology.

    Millar. It is based on the DC Comics character Superman, originally created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. The television series was initially broadcast by The WB Television Network (The WB), premiering on October 16, 2001. After Smallville's fifth season, The WB and UPN merged to form The CW, which became the broadcaster for the show in the United States. It ended its tenth and final season on May 13, 2011. The series follows the adventures of Clark Kent (Tom Welling), who resides in the fictional town of Smallville, Kansas, during the years before he becomes known as Superman. The first four seasons focus on Clark and his friends' high school years. After season five, the show ventures into more adult settings, eventually focusing on his career at the Daily Planet, as well as introducing other DC comic book superheroes and villains.

    Each main character's story is developed separately and as time passes their paths cross and it is explained how their stories are intertwined and connected. This is the story of ordinary people who discover extraordinary super powers after a solar eclipse reveals them, and how these abilities affect the characters' daily lives.

      - Rubbish. Most of the shows listed here can\'t, and never will hold a candle to the top 3 sci-fi shows of all time - 1) Star Trek Original 2) X-Files and 3) Fringe. And The Twilight Zone gets the Honorable mention for being way ahead of it\'s time with out of the box innovation as well. **The only recent show that stands up is Caprica, way better than it\'s Battlestar Gallactica reboot predecessor, and not predicated by it, so not necessary to watch B.G. to understand the storyline of Caprica. Most all others listed here....pure rubbish.

      I decided to choose the shows that were actually Science Fiction and not just Science Fantasy. That doesn\'t mean that the science Fantasy Shows were not more entertaining.
