A Verity-able Biopic

A short film about Verity Lambert and her struggle to get Doctor Who made will be broadcast online this December.

Verity (with the tag line: “Men, Bitches and Daleks”) has been written by two film students from the University of Central Lancaster. Thomas Cowell and Joey Guy produced the film focusing on the key stage of production of the first episodes of Doctor Who between August and December 1963.

London, 1963. Verity Lambert, the woman in charge of the BBC’s new children’s show, is facing somewhat of a struggle. Not only has she got to make a TV show with the entire scope of time and space (on a small budget), but she also has to face bitchy co-workers and arrogant male peers.

Verity shows how she fought for the Daleks right to exist on TV, battled against jealous co-workers and ended up triumphant with a national success on her hands. It will be broadcast on YouTube in early December.

More details of the production can be found at the producer’s blog.

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
