The first episode of "Doctor Who" aired 48 years ago today. "An Unearthly Child" introduced William Hartnell as the First Doctor, and Susan Foreman and William Russell as Barbara and Ian, his first companions.
We're celebrating TARDIS Day with every "Doctor Who" theme from 1963 to the one we know and love today. If you have any of the old Hartnell episodes lying around, this is the perfect excuse to break them out and give them a watch. Happy TARDIS Day!
Okay, it's not that Matt Smith. But a man named Matt Smith decided the "Doctor Who Experience" in London was the perfect place to propose to his Whovian girlfriend. He even donned a tweed jacket and bow tie for the occasion.
When the other Matt Smith, the one who actually plays The Doctor, heard about this, he sent a letter of congratulations to the couple.
"Matt Smith proposing to his girlfriend! Firstly, being a Smith means phone calls to the bank take so much longer - there are so many Smiths!! But I bet none of them have proposed at the Doctor Who Experience! Amy and Rory would be proud. Next - babies in the TARDIS...? Congratulations to you both and many years of happiness. Love, Matt."
