Go Back in Time to the Origins of Doctor Who with the Trailer for An Adventure in Space and Time

We feel guilty for thinking this looks more fun to watch than early Doctor Who.

For the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who, the BBC is bringing us back to the series’ roots with the TV movie An Adventure in Space and Time. Airing on BBC America on November 22, the day before “The Day of the Doctor,” the special promises a behind-the-scenes dramatization of the show’s origins, and the trailer has us pretty excited.

With David Bradley (Lord Walder Frey on Game of Thrones) portraying First Doctor William Hartnell, fans will get a look at the struggles the show initially faced that shaped the beginnings of the now worldwide phenomenon. For more information on the special, head over to BBC’s Doctor Who website.

Dan is many things, including a game developer, animator, martial artist, and at least semi-professional pancake chef. He lives in North Carolina with Lisa Brown (his wife) and Liz Lemon (his dog), both of whom are the best, and he will never stop reminding The Last Jedi's detractors that Luke Skywalker's pivotal moment in Return of the Jedi was literally throwing his lightsaber away and refusing to fight.
