"A fascinating story of pluck, luck, and imagination delightfully rendered" -- TV Guide.
"A full-throated, heartfelt origin story of Doctor Who" -- The Hollywood Reporter.
On November 23, 1963, a television legend began when the very first episode of Doctor Who was broadcast on the BBC. Now, fifty years later, the genesis story of this remarkable series is retold in this extraordinary film by Mark Gatiss (Sherlock, Doctor Who). It's an incredible story of triumph against all odds sure to inspire television lovers of all ages!
Actor William Hartnell felt trapped by a succession of tough-guy 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 afternoon drama, time travel and monsters! Allied with a brilliant creative team, they went on to introduce the world to the longest running science fiction series ever, currently in its 50th year and counting.

If you are an avid fan or just a nosy parker wanting to know how Doctor Who came to fruition then you are in the right place! With an idea hatched from Sydney Newman and under the tutelage of Britain's first female producer, Verity Lambert, Doctor Who was the first program of its kind. Originating in 1963, it predates television shows, Lost in Space, as well as, My Favorite Martian, and has continued for over 50 years!! It's not essential to have watched Doctor Who to enjoy this film, however, time is relative, or as the Doctor would say:

"People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint - it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly... time-y wimey... stuff."

I recommend this for any Doctor Who fan and especially for anyone who likes to know about behind the scenes stuff. Interesting biography. Interesting '60s history.

Brought a tear to my eye what happened to William Hartnell, but was good to see Matt Smith to show the character that it will always go on because of William Hartnell.
