VOTD: 47 Years of ‘Dr. Who’ in 6 Minutes

As someone who finds the 200-something episodes of Joss Whedon’s Buffyverse plenty daunting, I can’t even begin to imagine tackling Dr. Who. The long-running British television show  spans 47 years, over 700 episodes, and eleven different incarnations of the titular character. Dr. Who‘s long, convoluted history can be tough for even a devoted fan to keep straight, to say nothing of newcomers just tuning in for the first time.

Luckily, the Fine Brothers (whom you may recall from the time they upset Damon Lindelof with their biting Lost parody series) have taken it upon themselves to recap nearly five decades of Dr. Who in just six minutes. Terms like “TARDIS,” “Torchwood” and “Daleks” are explained, as are the costume changes and major plot points from each Doctor’s term. Whether you’re looking for an introduction or just a refresher, it’s worth checking out. Watch it after the jump.
