Very, very few things could make me long to still be in college, or school of any kind, but this is one of those things.

There’s no tuition, but a sonic screwdriver might come in handy.

A college professor is taking eager students on a journey through space and time with a new course dedicated to Doctor Who.

An adventure through

SPACE & TIME

Discover the history of Doctor Who from its origins as a children's program in 1963 through the modern revival of the series that has achieved global appeal

Doctor Who in the Digital Age

Like Doctor Who, technology and media culture have changed quite a bit in the last 50 years. With access to the Internet and digital media, fans are now able to connect online in a global community.

 

Unlike analog generations that grew up knowing one or two "Doctors," today's Whovian is able to experience not only the current Doctor Who series, but revisit the classic serials as well. Our streaming, time-shifting and binge-watching allow us to consider the whole of Who as a collective work, and even to restore pieces of the story that had once been thought lost forever.

 

Speaking in Doctor Who terms, we can, in a sense, travel back in time to experience the series all over again.
