To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, a special docu-drama ‘An Adventure in Time and Space’ will be screened. The 90 minute special will feature David Bradley as actor William Hartnell, Brian Cox as series creator Sydney Newman, Jessica Raine as producer Verity Lambert and Sacha Dhawan as Waris Hussein, director of the first Doctor Who story, An Unearthly Child.
Written by Mark Gatiss of Sherlock, League of Gentlemen and Doctor Who fame, the program will recount the making of the program in the 1960’s, calling for the recreation of several iconic moments such as The Dalek Invasion of Earth.
I enjoy the new series and am happy that it has introduced a new fanbase to Doctor Who, but it is so exciting for me to see classic Daleks in a familiar setting, recreating a moment from one of my favorite stories.
The premiere screen date of ‘An Adventure in Time and Space’ is still to be decided, but it will likely occur around the anniversary, November 23rd.
