BBC releases new retro posters for Doctor Who docudrama An Adventure in Space and Time

DoctorWhoBBC One’s Official Doctor Who Twitter tweeted two new retro posters for the upcoming docudrama An Adventure in Space and Time – the story of the creation of Doctor Who.

The posters feature David Bradley dressed as William Hartnell, the actor who played the First Doctor, a Dalek, Cyberman and a Menoptera. You may not recognize the Menoptera because they haven’t featured it in New Who, but it was from the popular episode called, The Web Planet. If you have not seen it, go watch it. It’s a good episode for those who want to start watching Classic Who.

Official Synopsis:

This special one-off drama travels back in time to 1963 to see how the beloved Doctor Who was first brought to the screen.

Actor William Hartnell felt trapped by a succession of hard-man 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 tea-time drama, time travel and monsters!

Allied with a team of brilliant people, they went on to create the longest-running science fiction series ever, now celebrating its 50th anniversary.

An Adventure in Space and Time will air on the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who on November 23rd, 2013.
