BBC Releases An Adventure In Space and Time Trailer! [VIDEO]

Airing in seven days’ time, the BBC has released a trailer for the forthcoming genesis biopic of Doctor Who, An Adventure in Space and Time.

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…

This special one-off drama travels back in time to 1963 to see how Doctor Who was first brought to the screen.

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.

We’ve been told that there are a few secrets in this show that you won’t want to miss!

    Nice trailer. It’s a pity I will only be able to watch it much later as regrettably BBC 2 is not a part of my ‘licence’. I have to pay for certain cha nels ( just like you) and I pay for my public broadcaster but that only includes BBC1. So I’ll have to wait a bit. But as it’s going to be real drama, the BBC have kindly made a DVD available for pre order. I am very much looking forward to it, and I really don’t mind some people aren’t in the drama. I would have loved Whittaker to be in there, but as Mark Gatiss himself states: the drama is more important than including each and everyone. I have read elsewhere that William Hartnell’s granddaughter had to sniff…so it must really show a piece of drama. I’m so jealous you in the UK can see it this week already. But I just hope it’s worth waiting for!
