It's the 49th anniversary of the first Doctor Who broadcast!

Happy 49th birthday Doctor Who! See the original Radio Times feature and TV billing | Radio Times

The First Doctor
It was 49 years ago today that the first ever episode of Doctor Who was broadcast. An Unearthly Child, starring William Hartnell as the Time Lord, went out on BBC1 at 5:15pm on Saturday 23 November 1963.
We slip somewhat quietly through the 49th, marking it more as a moment to start gearing up in anticipation of the 50th ...


  1. I've only seen a couple episodes of Dr. Who - ever - but I was reading about it a few weeks back.

    It appears that MOST of the early years were erased!

    Too bad. They didn't have any sense of posterity in the old days.

    1. It's a shame about the all the "lost" episodes. Some dvd releases have filled in gaps with photoplays, even animation when a sound recording has been available but not the video. I hope to see more of those, especially the animated episodes, in the future even if they animated from scripts with new voice actors.
