My grand recap of favorite stories from each of the Doctors was all leading up to this, the 53rd anniversary of Doctor Who‘s premiere. How many shows can say they are still on the air more than five decades after their first episode? Ian and Barbara’s first foray into the TARDIS will always be one of the most iconic and memorable moments in the show’s history.
Of course, not that long ago, the Doctor had the chance to act the part of the awestruck companion, too.
Here’s to another fantastic fifty-three years!
