Television - Doctor Who - Alien Races

Television - Doctor Who – Alien Races

Doctor Who is one of the most creative and imaginative sci-fi shows in history. It focuses around a travelling alien who interacts with several species around the universe. The show began in 1963, almost fifty years ago. In this time hundreds of alien races have been introduced and been worked into the show. Some were seen on screen in the Doctor Who show, others in spin off shows, but all reside in the same universe. In this article I am going to give a brief introduction into as many of the different species as I can. In certain occasion the Doctor would encounter a whole species, and in others only one or two members of a species.

This list has been compiled prior to the 2012 /2013 series of Doctor Who and reflects all species known up to this time. Please note this is NOT a complete list and there will be many several gaps.
