It’s Doctor Who’s anniversary today – time to look back and celebrate 48 years of everybody’s favourite Time Lord!
On this very day in 1963, the first ever episode, entitled ‘An Unearthly Child’, was shown on BBC One (at 5.15pm to be exact!), and William Hartnell was introduced to the world as that mad but wonderful man with a box. The rest is history!
All these years later, the Doctor keeps getting madder, and there are no signs of him slowing down any time soon!
With this year’s Christmas Special just around the corner, a new series about to go into production, plus “extensive” plans for 2013’s big 50th anniversary, and even a feature-length movie in development, the show’s future is looking very, very bright!
But before we look to the future, let us delve into the past! How did you become a fan? Who’s your Doctor? What have been your highlights from the last 48 years? Reminisce!
