Doctor Who is one of the most popular television shows of all time, if only because it's been around for longer than some governments. Starting back in the ’60s, it changed from a semi-educational kids show, to a not at all good kids show, to a weird genre cult mash-up for nerds and kid nerds, to then absolutely nothing, and then back as a cool, fun, fresh, sexy adventure where 20-somethings dashed around with a handsome bloke (now blokette) in a blue box. 

The show has maintained its longevity, in case you somehow don't know this, through the replacement of its title character, regenerating the Doctor into a different actor whenever the former wants to retire, rebooting the show itself over a dozen times now. So here's some facts about the Doctor. Or rather a fact about the Doctor. One each, for each of the Doctor Whos that exist. For now.
