26/03/2005 "Doctor Who" returns to BBC TV after 16 years

The first series of the 2005 revival of the British sci-fi programme Doctor Who began with the episode "Rose". This marked the end of the programme's 16-year absence from episodic television following its cancellation in 1989. It was the first new televised Doctor Who story since the broadcast of the television movie starring Paul McGann in 1996.
