Today our favourite TV show celebrates its 48th birthday!

At 5.16pm on the 23rd November 1963 the BBC premiered An Unearthly Child and UK television viewers were introduced to the incredible world of Doctor Who for the first time.

William Hartnell played the Doctor, a strange old man who could travel through time and space in his police box. Little did audiences know that this was just the first incarnation of a character who would become iconic and go on for such a long time.

With audiences growing across the whole world, the show is arguably more succesful than ever today and long may it continue. Happy Birthday Doctor Who! Just two more years until the big 50.
