BBC Releases An Adventure In Space and Time Trailer! [VIDEO]
Written by Mark Gatiss and starring David Bradley as William Hartnell, the film – which airs on Thursday 21st November on BBC Two at 9pm – promises to tantilise fans of the classic era while telling a powerful story about the people involved…

Actor William Hartnell felt trapped by a succession of hard-man roles. Wannabe producer Verity Lambert was frustrated by the TV industry’s glass ceiling. Both of them were to find unlikely hope and unexpected challenges in the form of a Saturday tea-time drama. Allied with a team of unusual but brilliant people, they went on to create the longest running science fiction series ever made.
