First Broadcast of Doctor Who on BBC TV in 1963

Also known as
TARDIS Day

Many years ago in the early sixties not yet everybody had a television, so television was very super special.

The BBC decided to fill the gap between the block of children tv to grown ups tv with a show that people of all ages could enjoy.
At 17:16:20 GMT on Saturday, November 23 in 1963 people saw
“An Unearthly Child”.
This was te first episode in a series about a mysterious being who calls themselves the Doctor, who travels in a police box that is bigger on the inside.
The show was weird, it was new.
It was controversial.
It made people think about science, history, sociology and all kinds of stuff…

Doctor Who is one of the oldest TV series that we know.
The show ran until 1989, with a pauses here and there of some years.
Then had an almost 15 year break apart from a movie featuring the 8th Doctor.

And in 2005 the Doctor came back strong as ever in the famous “revival series” with bigger budgets, heaps of merchandise and more controversies and pop culture impact than ever.


Didn’t anyone ever tell you?
There’s one thing you never put in a trap if you’re smart.
If you value your continued existence,
if you have any plans about seeing tomorrow,
there’s one thing you never, ever put in a trap.”

And what would that be, sir?” 
Me!”
