A beautiful and moving telling of the origins of Doctor Who.

A special drama commissioned for the show's fiftieth anniversary, it shows the origins of Doctor Who, exactly how it came about. It tells the story of the show's conception, the casting, the bold decision of having a female producer, and the rise and fall of lead actor William Hartnell.

Hartnell is gloriously brought to life by David Bradley, he manages to create both William Hartnell and his interpretation of the first Doctor. At times the show feels like an homage to Hartnell, and rightly so, the show would have been nothing without him. How wonderful that Bradley will get the chance to play the first Doctor for real.

It's a hugely interesting show, especially for fans of Doctor Who like myself, I'm not too sure non fans would get it in quite the same way, there are so many references to the show's early years.

A wonderful job is done in recreating the give of the sixties, the costumes are superb, unfortunately some of the more unpleasant attitudes people had back then are also highlighted.

I think it shows how lucky we are that the great show is still going on our screens, and fans should support it even though the less successful times, it is a national treasure after all.

A superb drama. 10/10

A touching tribute to the best TV show of them all

Doctor Who is my favorite TV show ever, so admittedly this film will connect to me far more. It's not necessarily a brilliant piece of TV, but it's a lovely drama with great performances, a compelling underdog story, nice visuals, good dialogue and a truly, truly wonderful ending. David Bradley is a superb actor and despite how brilliantly grotesque he was in Game of Thrones and Harry Potter, he's wonderful here and carries the entire film along. All the other actors do a great job and this is also a nice feminist story of a woman triumphing over workplace sexism to produce one of the most beloved TV shows of them all. It's a highly nostalgic work, and as a documentary of the show's beginning it works very well and gets a lot of information across. As a drama, it hits various compelling emotional peaks (Although a lot of it was probably artistic licence to some degree, but that's understandable in a film of this sort). It loses momentum in the last half-hour as it rushes through the first 3 years of the show and feels more like a highlights montage, but there are still good moments throughout this last section. As for that final scene with the Matt Smith cameo, don't get me started on that because believe me when I say this: I will cry. It's that wonderful. On the whole, a very nice tribute to the show, even if the run-time is too short to cover the subject completely.

8/10

Great story about a great SCFI show

Well lets be Honest I am Huge fan of Doctor who I love the time traveling and monsters and the sound track. The Theme song is by far the best TV theme song. I would always be exited when Doctor who came on TV I watch every episode but miss out on a few every now and again In 2013 marked the 50th anniversary of the show which i was looking forward to I had they where doing an dictmory of the show of it all began but sadly I missed out on it but I luckily engonh to get it out on Blu ray and what to say I really enjoyed it shows that every thing you want in something can come true and be huge hit on TV.

overall great dictmory wroth watching 10/10
