Mark Gatiss: William Hartnell would be “amazed and delighted” with modern Doctor Who   Leave a comment

Doctor Who has changed a lot in 50 years. Even so, writer Mark Gatiss thinks that the very first Doctor William Hartnell would be “amazed and delighted” at the show’s modern incarnation.

Gatiss was on the BAFTA red carpet tonight in the hope of winning Best Single Drama for his take on the origins of Doctor Who, An Adventure In Space And Time, which brought Hartnell to life through Broadchurch actor David Bradley.

Speaking to, he added that, “I’m sure the actual pace of the show would slightly baffle him now but when I interviewed William Russell (who plays Ian Chesterton) in preparation for writing this script he said to me ‘you know what Bill would like the most?’ he said, ‘I’m on a stamp!’ He would have been unbelievably overwhelmed… utterly delighted.”

Looking back on the filming of the drama, he said: “It was fantastic. The whole process of making it was genuinely delightful – it was one of the best experiences of my career, which is what I hoped it would be. But the reception has been something else and not just from Doctor Who fans. It’s been so moving really.”

“People seemed to really get it on a human level. What I particularly wanted to do was to make it an everyman sort of story – it’s about someone losing the thing they like most in the world, so it didn’t have to be about Doctor Who.”

Doctor Who: Mark Gatiss – “William Hartnell’s Doctor was an antihero”   Leave a comment

The Doctor was a very different person in his first incarnation compared with the heroic character we know today says Mark Gatiss, the Doctor Who writer and creator of An Adventure in Space and Time.

“He was much more of an antihero,” said Gatiss, whose drama about the birth of Doctor Who will tell the story of actor William Hartnell, who played the First Doctor.

“It’s mostly the personal journey of William Hartnell and his relationship with [Doctor Who producer] Verity Lambert,” said Gatiss of the show. “Eventually he had to leave, and none of us like to find that we are replaceable.”

Gatiss announced earlier this week that Harry Potter actor and one-time Doctor Who guest-star David Bradley is to play Hartnell in An Adventure in Space and Time, adding that he had had him in mind for the role “for years”.

The drama will air this year as part of the BBC’s celebrations of Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary year.
