The Doctor is a renegade Time Lord: an eccentric, highly-intelligent scientist from a distant planet. He travels through time and space in the TARDIS, a curious device, larger on the inside than on the outside, which was designed to change its appearance to suit its surroundings. Unfortunately, the Doctor's TARDIS seems to be broken, and always appears as a blue British police box. The Doctor has a soft spot for the planet Earth, and often visits there, either to save it from various alien threats or to whisk a choice few inhabitants away to the distant parts of the galaxy to help him fight evil there. The Doctor has many foes, including Daleks (led by Davros), and The Master, another renegade Time Lord. Time Lord biology enables them to regenerate their bodies, and so both the Doctor and the Master appear to evolve over the years... Written by Murray Chapman <muzzle@>
My blood tests came back normal for liver and pancreas, but they noticed slightly elevated WBC levels. I know high WBC is related to infection, but you mentioned GERD, and I was wondering if inflammation could be the cause, rather than infection? My doctor is suggesting I take my gallbladder out “just in case”, and while although I know the consequences of having an infected gallbladder is severe, are there any other tests that could rule out the possibilities? The sonogram showed that I had a gallstone, but just one (1 cm large), and I’m not experiencing typical gallbladder pain. I figured an infected gallbladder would have me bed-ridden, vomiting and severe pain? I don’t even have pain save for swallowing and burping. Most of the day I don’t even feel it. The only indication that it may be gallbladder related is that the area near my URQ feels swollen and crampy, but this only occurs at certain times of the day as well.
The phrase " Hiding behind (or 'watching from behind') the sofa " entered British pop culture , signifying in humour the stereotypical early-series behaviour of children who wanted to avoid seeing frightening parts of a television programme while remaining in the room to watch the remainder of it.  The phrase retains this association with Doctor Who, to the point that in 1991 the Museum of the Moving Image in London named their exhibition celebrating the programme "Behind the Sofa". The electronic theme music too was perceived as eerie, novel, and frightening, at the time. A 2012 article placed this childhood juxtaposition of fear and thrill "at the center of many people's relationship with the show",  and a 2011 online vote at Digital Spy deemed the series the "scariest TV show of all time".
