The Smart Kid – Trivia 7

the_tardis In chapter 4 of The Smart Kid, the British TV show Doctor Who is mentioned.
The first episode aired, Nov. 23, 1963, the day after JFK was shot. It ran continuously for 26 years. Then it was re-started in 2005.
Tom Baker played the fourth incarnation of the Doctor from 1974 to 1981.
In the 1980s the show was available for viewing in Minnesota on public stations (channel 2).
So, few people knew of the show at that time. But The Smart Kid did. And, like the doctor, his identity is a mystery.
