The Woscape is vast, with the Doctor and his companions traversing time and space for over four decades. This makes Doctor Wlto, which first aired in 1963, the longest_running science ficLion series in television history. One referent for this chapter is thus the actual histor_ ical extent of Doctor Who, andin particular the way in which specific eras of production_always seeking new audiences-locate themselves in history and.orrirt. O* concern here is two recent series of Doctor tWho }OOS and 2006), and how they speak from within the social and political context of our time.
