David Tennant & Karen Gillan Among Talking Heads In The Real History of Sci-Fi

On Saturday April 19th, BBC America delves into the real history of science fiction with filmmakers, writers, actors and graphic artists looking back on their experiences and on how their obsession and imagination has taken them into the unknown.

As previously reported, The Real History of Sci-Fi – narrated by Mark Gatiss – features exclusive new interviews with Doctor Who‘s David Tennant, Steven Moffat and Karen Gillan, as well as big names such as Blade Runner‘s Rutger Hauer, Nathan Fillion, Zoe Saldana, Scott Bakula, Director John Carpenter, Writer/Producer Chris Carter,Author/Screenwriter Neil Gaiman, actors Christopher Lloyd and William Shatner and many more!

The series starts with “Robots”: What if our creations turn against us? The idea of creating life has fascinated society since the earliest days of science fiction. The first installment of the four-part series transports viewers from the first steps of Frankenstein’s monster to the threat provided by the Terminator and the world of Cyberspace.

    Will definitely be recording this mini-series.

    Due to the image on the front page, I was expecting this to be a longer ad for the show with Tennant actually talking. Unfortunately its the same short ad they have on TV right now.
