An Adventure In Space And Time @ BFI Southbank

As part of their celebrations of the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, the British Film Institute will be hosting a special preview screening on 12 November of the new drama An Adventure in Space and Time about the beginnings of the beloved TV show.

An Adventure In Space And Time, from writer Mark Gatiss, stars David Bradley (Dinosaurs on a SpaceshipHarry Potter, Broadchurch) as the First Doctor William Hartnell, as well as Brian Cox (RED 2) as BBC Head of Drama Sydney Newman, who is credited with creating the show, and Jessica Raine (Call The Midwife) as the series’ first producer, Verity Lambert.

The movie tells the story of the beginnings of the show, what was involved in bringing the show to life on the BBC 50 years ago, and about the people that were behind it all. Mark Gatiss has said,

This is the story of how an unlikely set of brilliant people created a true television original. I’ve wanted to tell this story for more years than I can remember!

The event is scheduled for 8:20pm 12 November at BFI Southbank. Tickets are being allocated in two separate ballots for BFI Champions and Members but you’ll need to hurry – the ballot closes at 12:00 on 4 October.

I am quite looking forward to seeing this movie. I’ve really enjoyed all of these looks back into the history of the show that we’ve been gifted so far this year and this seems like the biggest gift of all!

Rebecca is new to the Who world, having only recently watched the entire new series in a span of 8 days. She is no stranger to sci-fi though, being a life long Trekkie and has vague memories of seeing the 4th Doctor on US television as a child. When not watching, reading, blogging, or talking about Doctor Who, she is a fan of pop culture and loves movies and books so much she has to keep a list of both so she doesn't forget any of them. She also likes to make attempts at various forms of art including photography and painting. Rebecca is currently working her way through as many classic serials and as many books related to the show that she can find and wishes she could have been with the Doctor and Amy when they met Van Gogh.
