What is Doctor Who About?

Its about friendship and bravery and love and loss, and life and death and forgiveness and guilt, and being human and being less than human and sometimes a bit more than human, skill and intellect and sometimes a little bit of luck, finding the extraordinary in the seemingly ordinary, looking up at the night sky and realizing you're a part of an impossibly beautiful and mysterious universe and that you don't know all the answers no matter how clever you are.

Its about looking inside yourself and realizing you're far greater than the external conditions of your life: you're not a shopgirl, your not a successful medical doctor, you're not a temp, you're not a little girl who needs to grow up or a boy that thinks the love of his life could have done better. You're the most important person in creation and at the same time you're the most insignificant thing in the world  and having the ability to choose between the two at any given time is fantastic. Its about embracing your inner darkness so that you can stand in the light of your truth. It's about having the guts to do what's right even when everyone else just runs away.

It is also about an alien known as "The Doctor", who travels through time and space in his starship that looks like a police box who saves people and other aliens with the help of his companion and the help of a tool called a "sonic screwdriver".
