The first Doctor, William Hartnell, was filmed along with Carole Ann Ford, Jacqueline Hill and William Russell. It was the first time the iconic blue police phonebox would make an appearance as well. None of the cast, nor the original producer, Verity Lambert, expected the show to last long.
This first episode, An Unearthly Child, would later premiere on November 23rd, 1963. 50 years later, the Doctor may have a new face, but still fills viewers with the same excitement of a “mad man with a box.”
