Al Calavicci from Quantum Leap

Cantankerous, but lovable Al Calavicci (Dean Stockwell) is a former naval aviator who now serves as Dr. Samuel Beckett’s assistant, guide and best friend in Quantum Leap. When he’s not helping Sam leap from time period to time period in an attempt to get him back home, you’ll find him enjoying his favorite cigar and checking out the local hotties.

Joe from Looper

Joe from Looper

The 11th Doctor

The 11th Doctor

Change is good. The 11th Doctor knows this. That’s why he wears a bowtie now. Bowties are cool. And sure, his regeneration was a little rocky and maybe the TARDIS needed a new desktop theme anyway, but he’s got everything under control. Really. You can stop laughing at any time.

Doc Brown

Doc Brown

Dr. Emmett Lathrop “Doc” Brown, Ph.D., played by Christopher Lloyd, is best friends with Marty McFly in the Back to the Future series. Brilliant but absentminded, he invents a time machine using a DeLorean, a flux capacitor, and plutonium stolen from Libyan terrorists. Great Scott!

The 9th Doctor

The 9th Doctor

What can you say about the Doctor that hasn’t already been said over his show’s fifty-year history? He’s nine hundred years old, he’s an alien and he travels through time and space in a 1963 blue police call box. Also, sometimes he looks like Christopher Eccleston and that’s pretty fantastic.

Marty McFly

Marty McFly

Michael J. Fox plays Martin “Marty” Seamus McFly, the main character in the Back to the Future series. When he hits 88 mph in Doc Brown’s DeLorean, he accidentally goes back in time, and must do everything in his power to avoid wiping out his own existence.
