| You can't have 'Doctor Who' without the Doctor.
I'm a relatively new fan to Doctor Who and as such searched out the beginning seasons of the series to better understand the premise and origins of the show.

In my opinion William Hartnell Is Doctor Who, and all those portraying the role after Mr Hartnell are reflecting a small part of his performance into their personal incarnation of the Doctor.

That being said, I love this film ! It explains so much about the origin and talent that was behind the beginnings if this now iconic sci-fi series, and shows how the persistence and drive of a few individuals can overcome the overwhelming task of trying to turn an idea into a successful TV show.

An incredible performance by David Bradley in the starring role. His Bio says he's a fan of Hartnell's and it shows. He seems to channel Hartnell's spirit in many of the scenes, and his inflections and mannerisms are spot on. Jessica Raine was great in the role of Verity Lambert the budding producer, as was Sacha Dhawan as the director Waris Hussein, and a strong support role by Brian Cox portraying BBC studio executive Sydney Newman.

This movie captures the look and feel of the early Who shows and is an insightful and sometimes sad story but I highly recommend it to any Doctor who fan, or anyone who appreciates a well executed movie in which the underdogs triumph over incredible odds.
