About the TV Show
Doctor Who first aired Saturday 23rd November 1963. Airing weekly between 5pm and 6pm, the show was designed to fit comfortably between more adult focused shows such as Grandstand and teenaged focused shows such as Juke Box Jury.
Doctor Who was originally intended to be a family educational TV programme. Two of the original main characters were science and history teachers.
A lot of the early stories were pure historicals with no aliens. These historical stories were phased out at the end of the 60R42;s as the more alien settings increased in popularity.

A Madman with a Box
The Doctor is not from Earth, he is a Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey. The Time Lords were considered to be one of the oldest and most powerful races in the universe. Sometime in the future the Time Lords went to war against the Daleks and lost, the Doctor is the only known survivor.
The Doctor having recently escaped Gallifrey and their strict culture was not comfortable with meeting other people on Earth. When Ian and Barbara, two of his Granddaughters school teachers on Earth discovered the TARDIS he kidnapped them because he feared that they would tell others about what they had seen.
Over time the Doctor learnt to trust other people. The Doctor also saw humans ability to block out certain things they refused to believe in as noted in the "Aliens of London".

The Sonic Screwdriver
The Sonic Screwdriver is great for getting the Doctor out of trouble. It first appeared in the 1968 story "Fury from the Deep". It uses sonic waves to dismantle or fix equipment. It can also bypass locks unless they have a "deadlock seal".
Over the years several different versions of the Sonic Screwdriver have been made. In The Sarah Jane Adventures the Doctor left Sarah Jane with a similar Sonic Lipstick.
In the 1982 story "The Visitation" the Sonic Screwdriver was controversially destroyed by a Terileptil. It was reintroduced in the 1996 TV Movie and the Doctor hasn"t been without it since.
