What do you get when you mix C.S. Lewis with H.G. Wells, and sprinkle in a bit of Father Christmas? An alien Time Lord exploring space and time in a Police Box spaceship called the "TARDIS" (Time And Relative Dimension in Space). On November 23, 1963, a television legend began when the very first episode of Doctor Who was broadcast on BBC One. Fifty years later, the genesis story is retold in a new BBC AMERICA co-production film celebrating the 50th anniversary of the franchise.
Travel back in time and witness the genius that was First Doctor William Hartnell (David Bradley) and the unlikely production team behind the series: Verity Lambert (Jessica Raine), Waris Hussein (Sacha Dhawan) and Sydney Newman (Brian Cox).
