On this day in 1963, the British sci-fi television series, “Doctor Who” debuted in the United Kingdom. Doctor Who explored the universe in his time-travelling space ship (the TARDIS) depicted as a blue British police box. The significant pop-culture series ran from 1963-1989 and has recently been resurrected for another spin on the original concept.
Did you know that the Doctor’s favorite drink was Ginger Beer (aka Ginger Pop)? It is seen throughout many series of the popular TV show. Perhaps this inspired an artist to create the “Blue Box Ale” t-shirt. It reads… “Blue Box Ale is intended only for responsible Time Lords of legal drinking age. Drink responsibly and with moderation. Please do NOT drink and time travel”.
