It begins with two inquisitive school teachers following a student to her home, only to find she apparently lives in a junk yard which contains what looks like a police call box. Believing their student is inside the incongruous blue box, they ignore the protests of a mysterious old man known as the Doctor, and force their way in... The teachers are stunned to discover it's a craft that's bigger on the inside! A struggle ensues and the ship somehow 'takes off', flinging its occupants back in time... And so began a series of adventures that continues to enchant and enthral audiences around the world. http://www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/dw/news/bulletin_111123_01/Happy_Anniversary And to think all this shit started in 1963.
