Note: This series is a British import and its success is more heavily determined by its performance in its home country.

Description: The continuing adventures of the Gallifreyan Time Lord known as the Doctor who from time to time regenerates into a new incarnation. He travels through time and space in his TARDIS (Time and Relative Dimension in Space) with various, ever-changing companions and does battle with threats to the universe.

Status: (Update: 5/23/17) This show has returned for its tenth season on BBC America with okay ratings for a BBC America entry, but its survival its tied more closely to how it performs in Britain.  And plans are already in the works for an eleventh season with a new Doctor, so don’t expect any cancellations for this long-running series.
