This is the particularly interesting Doctor Who special. An Adventure in Space and Time is a one-off drama.

The drama travels back in time to 1963. Here we 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 in the form of a Saturday tea-time drama.
