Doctor Who is a British science fiction television programme produced by the BBC. As of 26 June 2010, 769 individual episodes, including one television movie of Doctor Who have been aired, encompassing 212 stories. Additionally, four charity specials and two animated serials have been aired, and two short sequences—"A Fix with Sontarans" and "Attack of the Graske"—were produced and involved the interaction of a viewer; the former was a segment of Jim'll Fix It and latter was a fully-interactive adventure. The show's high episode count resulted in Doctor Who holding the world record for the highest number of episodes for a science-fiction programme. For comparison, the Guinness World Record holder for the highest number of consecutive episodes, Stargate SG-1, aired 214 episodes.
Up until Survival in 1989, every story was a multi-episode serial, with two exceptions: the 1965 cutaway episode "Mission to the Unknown"; and the 20th anniversary story The Five Doctors. The characters in the column after the serial titles indicate the code used by the production team to designate the serial, where applicable, and are followed either by the titles of the individual episodes where given or by the number of episodes otherwise. Unless otherwise noted, episodes in this period are 25 minutes long. During the early seasons of the programme most serials were linked together and one would usually lead directly into the next. Starting with the 2005 revival, the production team abandoned the traditional serial format for a largely self-contained episodic format with occasional multi-part stories and loose story arcs. Unless otherwise noted, the new episodes are 45 minutes long.
