1. An Adventure in Space and Time

IMDB LogoIMDB Star
8.3/10
Rotten Tomatoes Logo95%
Reelgood Logo
78/100
Released: 2013Rated: PG
Drama, Biography

What it's about: This special one-off drama travels back in time to 1963 to see how 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. Allied with a team of unusual but brilliant people, they went on to create the longest running science fiction series ever made.

Where to Watch: Available to stream on a subscription service (BritBox).
