The history of the holiday begins on April 23, 2011, when the first episode of season 6 of “Doctor Who” hit television screens.

The first episode tells the story of a doctor who is an alien with the ability to travel through time using a special device, which is his spacecraft, the Tardis. The series introduces a new kind of monster called the Silence.
