Happy Birthday, Doctor!

47 years ago today, the BBC introduced us to the incredible world of Doctor Who. The show starred William Hartnell as the Doctor, an old man with a police box called the TARDIS that could travel through time and space.

The adventure began with a four part story called An Unearthly Child. The Doctor was joined by his granddaughter Susan Foreman (Carole Ann Ford) and schoolteachers Barbara Wright (Jacqueline Hill) and Ian Chesterton (William Russell).
