David Bradley In Character as William Hartnell

All sorts of photos have been popping up over the past few days in relation to Mark Gatiss’ An Adventure in Space and Time, the dramatised tale of Doctor Who‘s genesis.

In addition to this morning’s Dalek invasion of London, a recent feature in Radio Times offers a picture of David Bradley in character as William Hartnell, with Lesley Manville as the original Doctor’s devoted wife Heather, as seen above.

You’ll also be fascinated to see a selection of behind the scenes snaps from BBC Television Centre last week at Planet Mondas, where tour goers were able to catch some moments of shooting in the redressed reception area. Look out for old cars, authentic tax discs and the excellent Brian Cox as Sydney Newman!

Just a note on David Bradley – no, he looks nothing like William Hartnell, but he is a marvellous actor. I was enjoying his Cohen the Barbarian in Terry Pratchett’s The Colour of Magic just last night, and I’m certain this is going to be a superb piece of television.
