On November 23rd 1963 (at 5:15 pm) the first episode of Doctor Who —An Unearthly Child. It  was the first “normal” show to come on following BBC news coverage of the  assassination of John F. Kennedy.  The episode featured the First  Doctor, played by William Hartnell, his grandaughter Susan Foreman and  the episode deals with two teachers (Barbara Wright and Ian Chesterton)  discovering the TARDIS in a junkyard in London… and end up going to  the Stone Age.
Now the show is 48 years old, with 11 Doctors, more companions then you can shake a stick at and it just keeps getting better and better…

And now, because it’s awesome, a tweet from Neil Gaiman:

48 years ago, Doctor Who started. I couldn’t be who I am today without  the things the tv series, annuals, etc did to my mind. Thank you BBC. — @neilhimself

Happy Birthday Doctor Who!
