Doctor Who premiered November 23, 1963. The show ran for 26 seasons until 1989. The show was brought back for a 1996 movie that didn't take off. The show rebooted in 2005 and saw more success. The show originally started as an educational TV show where the historical episodes taught about history and the science fiction episodes taught about science. As the show progressed, the historical episodes became less popular and a greater focus was given to the science fiction episodes. Even today, episodes set in a historical time period have a science fiction element to the story. The show celebrated its 50th anniversary on November 23, 2013 with a special 75 minute episode featuring three Doctors.

With over 50 years on televsion, the Whoniverse has quite the collection of DVDs, books, and audiobooks to choose from. The Albuquerque/Bernallio County system owns a fair amount of Doctor Who material but we don't own all of it. If there is an item you're intersted in and we don't own it, we're happy to try to get it for you. You can suggest a purchase for us to add it to our collection. You can also stop by your local branch to fill out an InterLibrary Loan form to get the material from another library system.
