Doctor Who: first look at David Bradley as the First Doctor
Wondering how David Bradley scrubs up in costume as the First Doctor in An Adventure In Space And Time? Then look no further...
We first saw David Bradley in his role as William Hartnell in forthcoming Who docudrama An Adventure In Space and Time sitting on a park bench in civvies, accompanied by wife and dog. This official picture showing the actor in costume as the First Doctor (and looking remarkably authentic, we might add) is somewhat more of an exciting prospect.
There. It's difficult to see how they could have done better.
In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Steven Moffat described the Mark Gatiss-scripted drama as "gorgeous", adding, "It's a very, very different celebration of Doctor Who" from his fiftieth anniversary special. Moffat went on to praise David Bradley (Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, Broadchurch) as "such a clever actor".
Bradley stars as Hartnell opposite Call the Midwife's Jessica Raine as Verity Lambert, Brian Cox as Sydney Newman, The History Boys' Sacha Dhawan as Waris Hussein, Reece Shearsmith as Patrick Troughton and many more (including cameos from the First Doctor companions Carole Ann Ford and William Russell).
