Another significant anniversary today: the Daleks are 49 years old. The first Dalek serial, appropriately called The Daleks, premiered on BBCtv on December 21, 1963. Arguably, Doctor Who fans everywhere owe a huge thanks to the Daleks—without them, there’s a good chance the series would have become an obscure footnote in the history of British television.

Daniel is the owner and Managing Editor of Time and The – !. He's been a fan of Doctor Who since watching Tom Baker regenerate into Peter Davison on his local PBS station as a kid. He launched Time and The – ! in 2011 after having the bright (?) idea to watch every Doctor Who story from the beginning and blog about it. (Yeah, he's way behind.)
