November 23, 1963

On November 23, 1963, the BBC broadcast “An Unearthly Child” starring William Hartnell. This was the first episode of the first story of the first series of “Doctor Who”, which has become the longest running television science fiction feature. It is pretty good, but it is no “Inspector Spacetime”.

It was the second story when the show really took off, with the introduction of the Circuit Chaps, who had British children fleeing across schoolyards the next day shouting, “Integrate! Integrate!” Share this post, if you think the Mandella Effect might be involved here.
