The Doctor (Who) has landed (From This Is Local London)   Leave a comment

Watch out for Daleks and Cybermen storming Centre Court – cult classic Doctor Who is coming to Wimbledon.

The BBC has commissioned a one-off show to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the famous series, to be filmed at the Wimbledon Studios.

An Adventure in Space and Time, a 90-minute drama currently in the early stages of production at the Deer Park Road studios, will tell the story of Doctor Who since it was first broadcast on November 23, 1963.

Written by Mark Gatiss, the BBC special has been executive produced by current Doctor Who show runner Steven Moffat and Caroline Skinner.

Mr Gatiss said: “This is the story of how an unlikely set of brilliant people created a true television original.

“And how an actor – William Hartnell – stereotyped in hard-man roles, became a hero to millions of children.

“I’ve wanted to tell this story for more years than I can remember.

“To make it happen for Doctor Who’s 50th birthday is quite simply a dream come true.”
