I'm going to summarize the above links.

"Classic" Doctor Who started in the '60s and ended in 1989.

BBC revived the show in 2005, amassing a gigantic following.   

Doctor Who 9 hello gif

Over the past 50 years, there have been 11 Doctors. While the actors change, the character doesn't.That's because he regenerates into another body.   

The current Doctor is played by Matt Smith.   

Doctor Who 11 trust me I'm the doctor gif

The Doctor travels in a time machine called the TARDIS (Time and Relative Dimension in Space).

He carries a tool called a Sonic Screwdriver.

He always has a companion by his side to travel around the universe.

Sometimes he falls in love with her.

Or she falls in love with him.

Other times they're like brother and sister.

And then you have the Ponds (long story with strange dynamics).

But they all eventually leave, and everyone cries.

Now Clara is the next companion. We don't know a lot about her yet.

The Doctor also has Dr. River Song, with whom he's "friendly" (but we won't spoil that story).

The Daleks destroyed the Doctor's planet.

He's the only Time Lord left in the universe.

The Daleks are not the only enemy. There are a lot of enemies.

But as long as we have a Time Lord, humans will be safe.
