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.”

David Bradley talks about his experiences playing William Hartnell, the First Doctor in ‘An Adventure in Space and Time.’

David grew up with the show (‘I remember Hartnell, Troughton and Pertwee best’) and recently starred opposite current Doctor Matt Smith. Does he see any of Hartnell’s characteristics in Smith? ‘I really admire him as a Doctor’, says David, ‘he’s got that curiosity and that slight eccentricity that the part requires, not in the same way as Bill Hartnell, but I think some of those characteristics have gone all the way through everyone that’s played the Doctor’.

Comic Con News: Mark Gatiss & David Bradley Talk Doctor Who

via threeifbyspace.net

Mark Gatiss has been feverishly working on the Doctor Who special An Adventure in Space and Time.  The story will dramatize the events surrounding the creation of the world’s longest running science fiction series.

It’s not been announced exactly when the story will air, but it’s been hinted that we’ll see it before the 50th anniversary episode.  Showing how Doctor Who began would be an excellent way to put the 50th into perspective.

Gatiss wanted to tell the story of the creation of Doctor Who.  He’d heard so many anecdotal stories, but he wanted to get to the facts and dramatize the story of how this show came to be.  He’s always had an eye for historical detail as has been evidenced in his past Doctor Who stories, many of which take place in Earth’s past, so it’ll be exciting to see all the little details that will surely be in this special.

David Bradley, who will be playing William Hartnell in the special, tells how Hartnell was also a stickler for detail.  Hartnell insisted on knowing what each control on the TARDIS console was supposed to do.  He knew children were smart enough to catch if he pushed a different button to do the same thing in a different episode.  The man respected the intelligence of his audience and even though they were children he knew never to underestimate them.

Q: What are your favourite River Song moments? [x]

Anglophenia has a great writeup of today’s Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Panel at San Diego Comic Con:

Matt Smith, set to film his last episode as the Doctor, offered fans a sincere “Thank you for your support” today at Doctor Who 50th anniversary panel at San Diego Comic-Con. It was a bittersweet farewell tour for an actor who has won many fans in his four years on the long-running series.

The festivities played to a packed house in San Diego Comic-Con’s Hall H, a 6,500-seat venue. Smith did a balletic leap onto the stage destined to made into a thousand animated GIFs. And he was joined by his companion Jenna Coleman, executive producer and lead writer Steven Moffat, and producer Marcus Wilson. As the panel was also a celebration of An Adventure in Space and Time — BBC AMERICA’s upcoming dramatic film depicting the behind-the-scenes early days of Who — writer Mark Gatiss and actor David Bradley were on stage as well.

Craig Ferguson, Scottish funnyman, host of CBS’s Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and a lifelong Whovian, moderated the proceedings, kicking things off with River Song’s trademark “Hello, sweeties.” The panel was dotted with dollops of Ferguson’s brand of cheeky humor. “The people waiting for the Sons of Anarchy panel are very confused right now,” he said…
