Doctor Who has the ability to regenerate and acquire a new look in the new season, which making the Doctor Who Complete Box set
is most liked by the audience. Apart from these common reasons, the popularity of the show is based on several other reasons which are listed in the follows:
Craze of Dalek: If you watch Doctor who online, you will find that in the 1960s, Daleks (robot like mutants) became more popular than the Doctor himself. Kids found the Daleks quite terrifying, but loved to watch the monsters. The popularity of Daleks led to the creation of Dalek toys, comics and solo songs like “I’m Gonna Spend My Christmas With A Dalek” by the Go-Go’s.
Great influence on the genre: Doctor Who DVDs
had a tremendous impact on the British sci-fi genre. Initially, the producers of the Doctor Who episodes had a limited budget and had to use creative ideas for special effects and designing the sets. Their creativity was quite successful at that time and many other sci-fi shows became influenced by the show.
Inclusion of words in dictionary: Doctor Who is perhaps the first show which has contributed words to the English dictionary. “Dalek” was the first word to become a part of the English language and was commonly used for monster. The special traveling machine of the Doctor, “Tardis” also got included in the dictionary. It referred to something bigger from the inside, than the outside. The most important contribution to the English language by the show was the prefix “cyber”.
