BBC AMERICA is set to premiere An Adventure in Space and Time, a film drama about the creation of Doctor Who, as part of the channel’s celebration of the long-running sci-fi series’ 50th anniversary. Frequent Who scriptwriter Mark Gatiss has already been announced as writer, and he’s also serving as executive producer alongside current Doctor Who execs Steven Moffat andCaroline Skinner. The film is a co-production between BBC AMERICA and BBC Cymru Wales and will air later in 2013.
Doctor Who first hit the BBC airwaves on November 23, 1963, and an impressive cast has been assembled to play the personalities behind the show’s earliest days. David Bradley, best known as Argus Filch in the Harry Potter movies, has taken on the role as actor William Hartnell, who played the series’ very first Doctor. Call the Midwife star Jessica Raine, already cast in the Season 7, Part 2 premiere of Doctor Who, is set to play producer Verity Lambert, and the great Brian Cox (The Bourne Supremacy, Adaptation.) is on board as Sydney Newman, BBC’s then-Head of Drama. Meanwhile, The History Boys‘ Sacha Dhawan will play Waris Hussein, director of Doctor Who‘s premiere episode, “An Unearthly Child.”

I smooch their ridiculous faces.
is it just me or does his cat pin look like Marie from the Aristocats?
which is probably impossible because I don’t think the Aristocats came around until like the 90s.
It could very well be Marie as The Aristocats was released in 1970!
The First Doctor returns as you’ve never seen him before…
And unless I’m very much mistaken, you know that guy who did that ‘fan-made’ Doctor Who anime some years ago?
He was employed by the BBC to work on a Doctor Who animation project and I believe I’m right in saying he was involved in this.
I can see a bit of his style in here…))

you do know that 11 is a cosplayer right? That’s not actually Matt Smith. Annnnnd the source of this post is ~wrong~
Yes, I found out that it was an Eleven cosplayer, eventually. As for the comment about the source, I’ve specified on the “About Me” section of my blog that all the pictures that I post are not mine and they come from reblogs or random searches on the internet. With that being said, I think I’ve made it clear that I’m NOT taking the credit for this picture. But I should have made that clear when I posted this picture, so that was stupid on my part. I apologize for that, guys. However, if the person to whom this picture belongs to is reading this, he/she can come forward and claim the credits they deserve. I’m merely sharing this wonderful picture.
Have a great day! :)
