Summary
  • 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. Includes Bonus Features
  • 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!
  • "A full-throated, heartfelt origin story of Doctor Who" -- The Hollywood Reporter
  • "A fascinating story of pluck, luck, and imagination delightfully rendered" -- TV Guide
