David Bradley portrays the first Doctor William Hartnell in ths BBC docudrama which tells the story of the creation and first three years of the series.
The drama focuses mainly on the first man to play the mysterious “Dr. Who,” William Hartnell, and his relationship with the series’ first producer, Verity Lambert, who was also the youngest and first female producer at the BBC. Also important are the Head of Drama at BBC at the time, Canadian Sydney Newman, and the show’s first director, the young Indian director Waris Hussein. The four of them are depicted as the most important people in the show’s history, and in a great many ways they were the most atypical creators of British television in history.

I thought it was fantastic. A great nostalgic piece, which shows how Dr Who developed from humble beginnings!
The first episode premiered the day after JFK was killed and got virtually no viewers. The BBC decided to repeat it the following Saturday, and the rest is history.

It’s that time of year again when friends and family think about the Christmases of the past and plan for the coming
holiday with their loved ones in mind. As we reflect on this wonderful holiday, we must keep in mind that Christmas
is not just any holiday but may be the most important one of the year for some people. It is a time for remembering,
a time to share the goodness of your heart with others, and for expressing with words and gifts what someone means
to you. It is a chance to make wishes come true and to give something from your heart. It is a chance to give a
message that will express love and caring to the ones we care about the most.
