I’ve wanted to tell this story for more years than I can remember.
This is the story of how an unlikely set of brilliant people created a true television original. And how an actor – William Hartnell – stereotyped in hard-man roles, became a hero to millions of children.
We happen to know that shooting is set to start in around three weeks, with casting taking place right now. We also suspect that this will be as vital viewing as the anniversary episode itself!
