Dr Who: An Adventure In Space And Time - Trailer & Mini-Episode

Reported by Outsiders - 12:05 AM 2013.11.16

It's the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who. So, lets have a look at how it all began: Check out the trailer for the upcoming made-for-TV drama "An Adventure in Space and Time," which recreates the early '60s-era of British television to depict the humble beginnings of the groundbreaking science-fiction series that was originally pitched as "C.S. Lewis meets H. G. Wells meets Father Christmas."

Harry Potter and Game of Thrones star David Bradley portrays William Hartnell, the 55-year-old English actor who played the very first Doctor Who in the show's initial four-season run. Though not seen in this 30-second preview (but heard briefly), veteran character actor Brian Cox (Zodiac, Troy) co-stars as Sydney Newman, the Canadian-born television producer/creator behind the long-running sci-fi drama.

Written by Doctor Who and Sherlock producer/writer Mark Gatiss and directed by seasoned TV helmer Terry McDonough (Breaking Bad, Suits), "An Adventure in Space and Time" is slated to air on BBC America, Friday, November 22nd -- which is a day after it premieres in England.

On November 23, 1963, a television legend began when the very first episode of Doctor Who was broadcast on BBC One. Fifty years later, the genesis story is retold in a new BBC AMERICA co-production film celebrating the 50th anniversary of the franchise. Travel back in time and witness the genius that was First Doctor William Hartnell (David Bradley) and the unlikely production team behind the series: Verity Lambert (Jessica Raine), Waris Hussein (Sacha Dhawan) and Sydney Newman (Brian Cox).
