Doctor Who: An Adventure in Space and Time Blu-ray

Posted March 5, 2014 04:39 PM by Webmaster

BBCBBC Home Entertainment has announced the 3-disc Blu-ray release of Doctor Who: An Adventure in Space and Time. Writer Mark Gatiss and director Terry McDonough's 2013 BBC docudrama stars David Bradley as William Hartnell, the actor who portrayed the First Doctor, along with Jessica Raine, Jamie Glover, Sacha Dhawan, Lesley Manville, Jemma Powell, Reece Shearsmith, Mark Eden and Brian Cox. The television film arrives on Blu-ray on May 27th.

Synopsis: Travel back in time to witness the dramatic birth of Doctor Who. Actor William Hartnell (David Bradley, Walder Frey in Game of Thrones, Filch from the Harry Potter films) felt trapped by a succession of tough-guy roles. Wannabe producer Verity Lambert (Jessica Raine, Call the Midwife) was frustrated by the TV industry's glass ceiling. Both of them were to find unlikely hope and unexpected challenges in the form of a Saturday afternoon drama, time travel and monsters. Allied with a brilliant creative team, they went on to introduce the world to the longest running science fiction series ever, currently in its 50th year and counting.

The 3-disc Blu-ray release of Doctor Who: An Adventure in Space and Time includes:
    Disc 1: An Adventure in Space and Time Blu-ray

Excellent! Don't need Disc 2 or 3 but will be good for those who don't have this already.

Still can't fathom why this didn't warrant a UK release on Blu-ray - another one I'll be importing from the US then! Glad I held off getting the DVD release...

nice to see it on BD, it was a nice movie but that original pilot is most interesting to me (unless it's been released on the classic Who DVDs, then nevermind lol)

Hooray! Thought for sure this would be relegated to DVD only.

kevin87, yes, the original pilot is already included on the DVD release of An Unearthly Child. I imagine this release will just include that same disc.

I was expecting this TV movie to appear in the Doctor Who Anniversary Box Set they might be releasing. Interesting it's finally getting a release though.

Although I'm a lifelong fan, I didn't find this as good as I had expected it to be. I had trouble watching it from beginning to end in one sitting. The presentation style turned me off. Finally, I saw it all by breaking it into short 15 minute segments which was about as much as I could take in one sitting.

Awesome I will be getting this for sure. I've watched almost all of the William Hartnell episodes and David Bradley does a great job.

Glad this is coming out on Blu-ray.

The second disc appears to be the same as the first disc from "The Beginning Box Set" which is the four episodes of the original series and the pilot episode.

Just watched this the other day. May get it for the bonus content, if it's not too pricey.
