How could you not know? HOW?

On this day, November 23, in 1963, at 17:16:20 GMT, the first episode of Doctor Who "An Unearthly Child" premiered...

…and today, November 23, 2013, at 19:50 GMT, "The Day of the Doctor" celebrates 50 years of Whovian glory!

In the words of the First Doctor...

CUE THE INTERNET EXPLODING WITH WHOVIAN HAPPINESS.

Are we (maniacally) excited?

Get your excuses prepared.

Non-Whovians, be kind to the bow-tie-wearing-Allons-y-shouting people in your lives. This is a pretty big day for them. Maybe make a bowl of fish fingers and custard for them or find some jelly babies...
