Today our favourite TV show celebrates its 52nd anniversary!
At 5.16pm on the 23rd November 1963 the BBC premiered (what would be become known as) “An Unearthly Child” and UK television viewers were introduced to the incredible world of Doctor Who for the first time.
A simple policeman in a fog. A strange unearthly girl. 2 School Teachers. 1 Police Box in a Junkard. And a grumpy old man…
A Legend was born.
William Hartnell was the Doctor, a strange old man who could travel through time and space in his police box. Little did anyone know that this was just the first incarnation of a character who would go on to be so iconic for over half a century.
With audiences growing across the whole world, the show is arguably more successful than ever today and long may it continue.
Happy anniversary Doctor Who!
