Last week, the BBC released a 90-second trailer for the upcoming special An Adventure In Space And Time, starring David Bradley (Harry Potter, Game of Thrones) as William Hartnell, the first Doctor, and tells the real-life story of how the Doctor Who television series came about in 1963.
Now, BBC America has released a domestic trailer for the special. You can watch it here below.
The month of Doctor Who celebratings is in full swing, with lots of original programming planned for the long-running series’ 50th anniversary. Along with The Day Of The Doctor special, which will bring together familiar faces of Who past, comes An Adventure In Space And Time, a new BBC special starring David Bradley (Harry Potter, Game of Thrones) as William Hartnell, the first Doctor, and tell the real-life story of how the Doctor Who television series came about in 1963.
BBC has released a trailer for upcoming 90-minute special – watch it here below.
An Adventure In Space And Time will air on BBC America on November 22, 2013 at 9PM ET/PT and on BBC Two on November 21, 2013 at 9PM.
While audiences are gearing up for The Day Of The Doctor, Doctor Who fans can also expect another great special coming from the BBC called An Adventure In Space And Time – telling the story of how Doctor Who came to be in real life, 50 years ago on November 23 – an valuable depiction of the beginning of what would become a cultural phenomenon and the longest-running sci-fi series in history.
Mark Gatiss, of Doctor Who and Sherlock fame, writes and produces the special, which features David Bradley (Harry Potter, Game of Thrones) as William Hartnell – the first Doctor – in a piece of casting that sees Bradley look just like Hartnell. The similarities are eerie.
An Adventure In Space And Time tells of how the television show came into being, the importance of first showrunner Verity Lambert (played by Jessica Raine), and the world-shattering approach in the impossible task of trying to tell stories on poor budgeting and how much of a phenomenon the series quickly became.
It’s been a whirlwind of a few weeks for Doctor Who fans. Just this past weekend, we learned that Peter Capaldi is the next Doctor; and before that, there was the 50th Anniversary Panel at Comic-Con in San Diego last month.
While there, a gathering of 600 people got together for the 50th Anniversary Fan Gathering, and BBC America decided to film them all singing the theme song – you can check the video out below.
After many months of speculation, the BBC announced today that their next Doctor for the long-loved Doctor Who will be none other than the brilliant Peter Capaldi. The reveal has been perhaps the most positive announcement for the BBC and Doctor Who in its entire 50-year history, with only small amounts of criticism being drowned out by the praise from fans online.
During TARDISblend 67, we are joined by special guest Andrew Sorcini of The Drill Down, and we discuss our reactions to the announcement, and the potential we face in future episodes. We also examine what is to come involving Peter Capaldi, Matt Smith, David Tennant, and John Hurt in the 50th Anniversary and Christmas Specials.
Later, Andy also gives us the rundown of his Doctor Who experiences at San Diego Comic-Con, including some of the reveals surrounding An Adventure In Space And Time! All this and more on the latest TARDISblend!
