Doctor Who's 49th Anniversary

Doctor Who is 49 years old today. On November 23rd, 1963 the very first episode, An Unearthly Child, aired on BBC at 5:15pm GMT. The broadcast was slightly delayed by news about President Kennedy's assassination the day before, but aired nevertheless.

Little did the producers realize that show about an old man in a police box would go on to last for almost fifty years. Eleven faces, dozens of companions, and hundreds of episodes later, the show is still going strong. Here's hoping it will last many more.
