If it's on on Wednesday isn't it a repeat? Did you not catch it the first time round a few weeks back?

Doctor WHO is like the greatest scifi adventure story ever told.
You have:
The Doctor who is a mysterious traveller of time and space, a Time Lord from the now extinct planet of Gallifrey. He has two hearts, a lower body temperature, and 13 lives thanks to the regeneration process.
The TARDIS which is the machine, the letters stand for Time And Relative Dimensions In Space. Years ago after landing in 1963 London, it's Chameleon circuit that enables it to blend in stuck in the Police Box shape, and has been ever since. It is dimensionally transcendental, aka bigger inside than out. And sort of an organic machine, grown, not built. And it's the Doctor's best friend and partner. Takes him anywhere, anytime.

Then there's a array of companions; one to have an entourage as once put, he travels with friends who usually join the crew inadvertently but lately, being pretty lonely, he's inviting folks; but he is picky on who comes along. He was once in love with a recent companion but it has officially ended with her in another dimension. He did have strong feelings towards another, Sarah Jane..and she for him. (but he'd never let her on)
Now alone again, he's off on his travels.

Best show ever. Original ideas, crazy aliens...it's awesome.

Dr Who was never really my thing, especially the revamp, but it seems to be the flagship of UK sci-fi so as long as it's popular!

It was worth it! Very epic. Though I still do not like Catherine Tate.
