An Adventure In Space And Time is a British film that dramatises the events of how Doctor Who was created in 1963, and the difficulties it experienced before becoming one of the most famous and successful TV programmes in history.
This film was fascinating. I thought it was a brilliant way to tell a story that is perhaps little-known about nowadays, so throughout the film, I was enlightened to discover new facts and delighted to learn many new and interesting things about one of my favourite shows.
The creation of the 1960’s world, as well as the world of television made this even more convincing, and while tying in with all the changes that were happening in TV at that time, it really made this film feel not at all like a documentation, but a journey into the future, like Doctor Who itself.
As well as that, one surprising aspect of the film was how truly emotional it was to watch. I was really engaged in the story, and was totally engrossed within the character of William Hartnell, feeling especially uplifted, or sad at certain points throughout, making it just all the more convincing and fascinating to watch.
Overall, this was an engrossing and enlightening look into a brilliant tale, being completely convincing all along the way, so I’ll give this a 7.9, and by the way, I wish a happy 50th birthday to Doctor Who!
