BBC AMERICA has announced casting for â€˜An Adventure of Space and Time,â€™ a film dramatization of the creation of Doctor Who, 50 years ago. David Bradley will play actor William Hartnell (the first Doctor), Jessica Raine will play producer Verity Lambert and Brian Cox has been cast as BBC Head of Drama Sydney Newman.Â Â SachaÂ DhawanÂ will playÂ Waris Hussein, director ofÂ Doctor Whoâ€˜s premiere episode, â€œAn Unearthly Childâ€.
The scriptwriterÂ Mark GatissÂ has already been announced as writer, and heâ€™s also serving as executive producer alongside currentÂ Doctor WhoÂ execsÂ Steven MoffatÂ andÂ Caroline Skinner. The film is a co-production between BBC AMERICA and BBC Cymru Wales and will air later in 2013.
Eleven authors have been commissioned to write ebooks for the British publisher Puffin, based on the eleven Doctors, and these will have a staggered release across the year, on the 23rd day of each month, so that the Eleventh Doctorâ€™s story arrives on November 23, the date of the actual 50th anniversary.
To raise anticipation for each book, the identity of the writers â€“ each one a big name in childrenâ€™s literature â€“ is being kept a secret. What we can tell you is that the first book, featuring the First Doctor, is calledÂ A Big Hand for the Doctor, and it has been written byÂ Eoin Colfer, author of theÂ Artemis FowlÂ books, and Â the man who took on the formidable task of writing some moreÂ Hitchhikerâ€™s Guidenovels.
Oh, and on the eleventh of each month (thematic numbering, see?) there will be a promotional video on theÂ BBC WorldwideÂ Doctor WhoÂ YouTube channel, that features each author as they come up. Eoinâ€™s will be out on Friday, andÂ A Big Hand For The DoctorÂ is available for pre-order for $2.68 for Kindle onAmazon.com.

The Doctor (MATT SMITH) is right: “It’s going to be epic!”. Especially because in 2013 it’s happening Doctor Who 50th anniversary.
- Aaa, refreshing to see that you take an interest again! Was she nice? asked Madam Vastra on the phone.
- I’ve just spoke to her! says the grumpy Doctor.
- And made your usual impact, no doubt!
- O, no impact at all! continue the Doctor with the same tone. That days are over.
- You can’t help yourself, it’s the same story every time, and it always begins with the same two words!
- She’ll never be able to find me again, she does not even have the name! Doctor! What two words?!
- Doctor? asked Clara pulling her beautiful head through the trap on the roof of the carriage.Â DOCTOR WHO?
The fans ofÂ the Doctor Who seriesÂ already know that BBC One and BBC America have broadcastÂ the Special Christmas episode, The Snowmen. The dialog from the beginning of this article appears in the first part of the episode, when a Doctor mourning his loses (the newest one being theÂ AmyÂ andÂ Rory‘sÂ disapearance) and prefer solitude, considering that the good old days, when he was saving the Earth, humans and Christmas, have past and they will not return.
The action is happening in the yearÂ 1892, andÂ Madam Vastra and her companions (Strax and Jenny Flint) are investigatingÂ the problems that appeared with the strange snow fallen over town and the carnivore snowmen. The one behind all these is Doctor Simeon, the representative of the Great Intelligence institute, a sinister individual interested on the pond in the Clara’s master backyard. In the previous winter theÂ Captain Latimer’s children’sÂ Governess have drown in that very pond, and Doctor Simeon was interested on the ice that copied the woman’s genetic structure in order to create an army of live snowmen. With their help he wanted to conquer the world and end the human kind.
So the Doctor have to end his solitude (especially because of Clara who’s always searching for him, first driven by curiosity, then by need) in order to save the world. One more time. He does not save the Governess in the end, Clara dies, but, at least we take a peek of theÂ TardisÂ when she visits it. If you haven’t already know, the TARDIS have a new look that have been presented the first time in the episode broadcast yesterday.
It was an interesting episode, very funny.Â The snowmenÂ keeps you around the TV/computer not only because of the action itself (it does not have too many breaks), but also because of the dialog. Strax, the Sontaran traveling with the Doctor and Madam Vasta in this episode is very hilarious… but I let you discover how.

More: they are both dead! And, even now, Jenna-Louise is the current Doctor’s companion. Have I made you curious?Â Â I say it’s enough to make you try to find more about all these… about the mystery surrounding the new character and the Doctor’s run to meet her again.

“It’s amazing thatÂ Doctor WhoÂ can attract these international stars,” Doctor Who writer Whithouse toldÂ SFX. “He was fantastic. I was really, really pleased that we got him because it’s an odd part – that character Isaac.
“Ben has this rather beautiful innate nobility that he manages to just convey, very simply and very economically. It was absolutely how I saw the character, so I was really thrilled with him, and delighted with his performance.”
Toby Whithouse also joked that he had avoidedÂ Doctor Who‘s previous jaunt to the Wild West – 1966′s William Hartnell adventure ‘The Gunfighters’.
