Doctor Who is a long-running British television show. It began on November 23, 1963 with William Hartnell starring as the First Doctor. He was traveling in the TARDIS (his time machine that can go anywhere in time and space) with his grandaughter Susan Foreman (Played by Carole Ann Ford). She was also a timelord. The timelords are a race of aliens that look like humans, but have two hearts, the ability to regenerate, and originate from Gallifrey.
Gallifrey was a planet in which “The sky’s a bright orange, with a citadel enclosed in a mighty glass dome, shining under the twin suns. Beyond that the mountains go on forever, Slopes of deep red grass, capped with snow.” That is the Doctor’s description from the episode ‘Gridlock’. NASA says that they have found a planet similar to Gallifrey: digitaljournal.com/article/331857 It is also described as “The Shining World Of The Seven Systems” by the Doctor.
