Tomorrow marks the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, and whilst we all sit here in excitement, eager to see how events unfold, the BBC treated us to a TV special called An Adventure in Space and Time. After all, all brilliant things have to start somewhere. What younger fans of the show may not realise that The Doctor wasn’t always as jumpy, vibrant and young as Matt Smith, but was actually a grumpy old man.
For Who fans old and new, this is essential. A beautifully shot, fantastically written and amazingly performed tale of the show’s inception. If anything has got me excited for tomorrow’s night big special, it’s certainly this.
