Who better to reveal the secrets of Doctor Who than an actual doctor? Meet Doctor Who expert Dr. Piers D. Britton. He might sound a Doctor Who expert we just totally made up, but he’s a real person who wrote a book on Doctor Who titled TARDISbound and teaches a class on the iconic show at the University of Redlands in California (if you’re a hardcore Doctor Who fan who had to sit through dull college electives, you’re probably feeling a surge of envy for Redlands students right now). With Doctor Who‘s eagerly awaited 50th Anniversary special “Day of the Doctor” set to be unveiled tomorrow on BBC America (2:50 p.m. ET), Dr. Britton reveals 15 strange and fascinating Doctor Who facts that you probably did not know.

'Doctor Who' Check out the trailer for TV movie 'An Adventure in Space and Time' -- VIDEO

Incredible thought it may be think, there was a time when the idea of a show called Doctor Who, about a weirdo who travels through space and time in a British police phone box battling metal death machines shaped like pepper pots, was not considered a slam dunk.
