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 ThronesHarry PotterBroadchurch) 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).

Awesome. I'm so looking forward to this. That could've been straight out of an early episode of Who, camera in shot and all!!!

And so he spoke, and so he spoke
That lord of Galiifrey...

I agree......can't wait for this!!

what is with the constant use of the word 'gorgeous' these days to describe films and tv episodes etc? women and sunsets are 'gorgeous' not 'Mark Gatiss scripted drama' lol

"One day, I shall come back. Yes, I shall come back".

And yes he did!

Even though it was used in The Five Doctors, I really feel that this movie should also start with that very same clip.

Maybe the script is 90% about women and sunsets (throughout time and space) - we'll just have to wait and see!

Maybe he'll be married to Susan now...

I wholeheartedly agree with you....such a great quote!

Because it was a quote from Steven Moffat, and... well, that really says it...
