I had to look up "Travelers", as it has completely missed my radar out here in the States. Being neither a Canadian, nor having Netflix International, I have never heard of it.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Travelers_(TV_series) Has it really been around that long? Wow.

Interesting concept. A bit like "Quantum Leap" meets "Seven Days", maybe? QL had the borrowing of another person's life and identity, while SD limited the time travel to one week and was a government operation. Like "Timeless", SD used a physical time-capsule.

Delighted to hear you also agree that "Doctor Who" is the best time travel show on Earth. I love the Doctor, all of him-- er, them! Discovered reruns of Tom Baker's episodes while I was in college and took to the program at once.

I grew up with the Doctor, all the incarnations. The canon says Capaldi is the 12th doctor, but, of course, there were others - like Peter Cushing and John Hurt, neither of whom were counted, even though Paul McGann was. All very confusing.

I think Tom Baker holds the record for the longest serving doctor, but Jon Pertwee was my favourite from the classic series (just ahead of Patrick Troughton). I think Matt Smith from the reboot (though Christopher Eccleston and David Tenant were also superb).

You're lucky to have seen the early Doctors. For most of us in the States, DW started with Tom Baker, though a guy friend of mine during college had seen Pertwee's episodes on PBS in the early Seventies, and liked them very much. (I was in highschool and watching things like "The Six Wives of Henry VIII" and "The Fortsythe Saga".) We American fans would buy up the Target paperbacks, simp!y to try to read the plots to those older episodes. I remember being surprised after watching "The Aztecs" when it was broadcast in 2016 as part of the Anniversary Celebration because I had always read Hartnell's Doctor was supposedly "crotchety" and "grumpy", yet he didn't seem that way at all to me.

Peter Cushing was technically just the movie version of Hartnell's First Doctor, so same character, different actor (movies demand bigger "name recognition", alas). Same with David Bradley, playing the First Doctor in "Twice Upon a Time."

John Hurt's character of The War Doctor has been a bit controversial, to say the least. Apparently he is considered a sort of alternate version of Paul McGann's Eighth Doctor (he was apparently induced to change by artificial means, so not a "proper" regeneration).

I liked Tom Baker, Peter Davison, and Patrick Troughton best of the original Doctors, and Christopher Eccleston, Peter Capaldi, and David Tennant best of the newer Doctors.

However ALL of them are amazing performers, and I just plain love the character of The Doctor (must, to have kept up with the fandom all these years).

I fear I have diverted us from the thread topic. But it is perhaps a comment on the 'time after time' series that we prefer to discuss Doctor Who.
