Doctor Who Celebrates 45th Anniversary

First Doctor William Hartnell

Forty-five years ago today, one day after the assassination of US president John F. Kennedy, viewers in the UK witnessed the beginning of a legend — “An Unearthly Child”, the very first episode of Doctor Who.

It’s hard for a modern viewer to imagine what it was like back in 1963, as the first notes of that haunting, unearthly theme music  was first heard.

The episode introduced the mysterious character known only as “the Doctor”, and his ancient, barely-working, but still amazing TARDIS.
