Happy 53rd Birthday, Doctor Who!
Today, 23rd November, is a particularly poignant date in the calendar of a Doctor Who fanatic, as it marks the official anniversary of their favourite show!
Doctor Who first aired on this day 53 years ago as the landscape of television changed forever when William Hartnell introduced the nation to a mysterious Time Lord called the Doctor in An Unearthly Child. Over half a century later (time certainly flies when you’re having fun!), Whovians are eagerly anticipating his return in the Christmas Special next month, which quite simply can’t come soon enough.
So, Doctor Who, a very Happy Birthday to you, and a sincere thank you from us for all the memories thus far. You are, quite literally, out of this world. It’s been the trip of a lifetime.
