How unique can you be? Because no matter how unique and creative you are, you can't imagine something like Doctor Who. The pure talent behind the scripts, the storyline, the characters... it takes time, effort, and a resilient, imaginative mind. And this is exactly the show for you. - GordonRamsay

It's fantastic to see Farscape in second place, but it's not primarily a time travel show so doesn't deserve to place so high. Best science fiction show, sure.

Doctor Who is the best Time Travel show in existence, the end. There is not comparison. - Flippin117

Phenomenal and legendary series. A Time Lord known as "the Doctor" travels through time and space in a TARDIS (Time And Relative Dimension In Space). - Alexandr

2 Steins;Gate Steins;Gate Steins;Gate is a 2011 anime television series created by the animation studio White Fox based on 5pb. and Nitroplus's 2009 video game of the same name, and is part of the Science Adventure franchise.

it cool

A time travel sci-fi anime series with extremely thought provoking themes. It's an emotional, bittersweet, philosophical, thrilling adventure through the eyes of self proclaimed mad scientist Okabe Rintarou. The first half of the show is very slow, but the second half is fantastic and is what the series is known for. Very, very, very well done. The dialogue and voice acting is excellent. This series tapped into some of the deepest aspects of humanity, in my opinion. But you have to watch the movie afterward. That made me tear up, and I'm a guy.

Among the series and movies about the time travel that I watch Steins Gate is the best. Because steins gate is simpler but on the other hand it explains the mechanism of time travel, and has a nice plot, beautiful drama, fun characters, great mysteries and thrills

Easily the best show involving time travel I've ever seen. This NEEDS to be higher on the list!

3 Farscape

Wormholes, time travels, amazing scenes from Earth and space - Alexandr

4 Primeval

Portals to different time periods start opening up and creatures from the past and future start to come through. There are indications that the portals are man-made, but their exact origin is shrouded in mystery. - Alexandr

It's just such a fun show. The CGI is good, the acting is good, the character development is great, It's just one of those shows you can't hate no matter how hard you try.

It's better than doctor who!

5 Odyssey 5

6 Quantum Leap

Dr. Sam Beckett helped to develop Quantum Leap, a project that would allow a person to time travel back to any point since that person was born. Beckett ended up being the test subject, and while he could remember only certain details, he traded places with a person in the past... - Alexandr

One of the best time travel shows ever

Oh boy

As a kid, my bedtime was 9pm, but on Wednesdays I could stay up til 10pm because of quantum leap!

Should be rated higher

8 Torchwood

Humans and aliens alike from different periods in time start to come through to our world by means of a rift in the space/time continuum. The series itself, is a spin-off from Doctor Who and very very decent spin-off - Alexandr
