Anglophenia’s interview with Director of First-Ever ‘Doctor Who’ Episode
On November 23, 1963 (the day after the Kennedy assassination), the very first episode of Doctor Who premiered on the BBC. And the man behind the camera was Waris Hussein, then only 24 years old, completely unaware of the phenomenon the show would become and the legions of fans it would acquire. Well, here he is, with almost 50 years of hindsight, chatting with Anglophenia’s Jon Sarlin about the series’ origins as an educational program for children, casting William Hartnell as the Doctor (“he was very reluctant to accept this part…he was an established movie star”), and how the fan base has evolved over the years.
