An Adventure in Space and Time is premiering Friday, November 22, 9:00pm ET/PT on BBC AMERICA.
On November 23, 1963, a television legend began when the very first episode of Doctor Who was broadcast on BBC One. Fifty years later, the genesis story is retold in a new BBC AMERICA co-production film celebrating the 50th anniversary of the franchise.
Travel back to witness the genius that was the first Doctor, William Hartnell (David Bradley) and the unlikely production team behind the series.
“An Adventure in Space and Time is principally a human interest story you can enjoy even if you know nothing about Doctor Who,” says writer and executive producer, Mark Gatiss. “You’ll see the story of some amazing people who come together under extraordinary circumstances to create this wonderful thing that is still with us today.”
