An Adventure In Space And Time – the 90 minute Doctor Who biopic which tells the story of the series’ genesis – will premiere on BBC Two on Thursday November 21st at 9pm, it has been announced.
Penned by Mark Gatiss, An Adventure In Space And Time travels back in time to 1963 to see how the beloved Doctor Who was first brought to the screen. Actor William Hartnell felt trapped by a succession of hard-man roles. Wannabe producer Verity Lambert was frustrated by the TV industry’s glass ceiling. Both of them were to find unlikely hope and unexpected challenges in the form of a Saturday tea-time drama. Allied with a team of brilliant people, they went on to create the longest-running science fiction series ever, now celebrating its 50th anniversary.
