A British science-fiction hero, Dr. Who made his stateside television debut during this past year. A package of the good Doctor's way-out adventures was made available to American viewers and won him a legion of fans this side of the ocean. As a Time Lord, Dr. Who (Tom Baker) dashes through the past and future, outerspace and other dimensional planes, accompanied by his young assistants. In the course of events, these travelers encounter a variety of strange alien creatures and universe-shaking dangers.

Dr. Who has served as a staple of English broadcasting for over 15 years; it ranks as one of the biggest hits in BBC history. Today it has captured the fancy of U.S. fans; a Dr. Who convention was recently called to order and drew over a thousand participants.

Tom Baker is familiar to SF enthusiasts as the co-star of such films as The Golden Voyage of Sinbad and The Mutations. Previous Dr. Whos include Peter Cushing, who portrayed the scientist in a feature film (Dr. Who and The Daleks).

Dr. Who's invasion of America has included a plethora of games, novels and other merchandising designed for the hero's adoring public. Marvel Comics has introduced a one-shot version of the Doctor's exploits.

It took Dr. Who over a decade and a half to journey to America; to many it was well worth the wait.
