More Than 30 Years in the TARDIS
‘It was sixteen minutes past five (Earth Time) on Saturday the 23rd November 1963, the day after the assassination of President Kennedy, when Doctor Who first materialised on to BBC Television. Squeezed in between the football results and the Telegoons, a legend was born.’
So, from humble flickering beginnings more than 30 years ago, began the eccentric Time Lord’s crusade against evil. Now this fascinating documentary charts that remarkable career in time travel.
There are dozens of classic excerpts featuring all seven Doctors, clips from the widescreen trailers of the two Dalek movies starring Peter Cushing, plus recently discovered material.
