UPDATE: New Image Of David Bradley As The First Doctor In The Doctor Who Docudrama Finds Its Way Online
UPDATE: Bleeding Cool managed to get even more pictures from the panel that showed off An Adventure In Space And Time. You can see those pics below the ones from the original article.
Of course everyone is looking forward to seeing Matt Smith and David Tennant teaming up in the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special, but almost as highly anticipated this year is Mark Gatiss‘ Doctor Who docudrama about the creation and early years of the show from its inception to the first regeneration. David Bradley will be portraying the late William Hartnell in An Adventure In Space And Time. We’ve seen a leaked, and blurry, image from the set but a clear picture of the stars has found its way online.
David Bradley will be bringing the First Doctor back to life, and many have speculated that he may be appearing as Hartnell‘s Doctor in more than just the docudrama. While that remains to be seen, a fantastic shot of him as the First Doctor and Claudia Grant as Carole Ann Ford (Susan Foreman on the show) has appeared on Facebook. The image has been passed around a lot in the five hours it has been posted, but it originates from someone we’ll call RD. After tracking down all the shares, it seems to come from the Paris Comic Con. Under the new picture of Bradley and Grant is a side-by-side of Hartnell and Ford. The resemblance is uncanny. As an added bonus, the BBC released a photo of the recreated First Doctor console for the production two days ago. You can see it below the character pics. It was sort of spotted in the first leaked image, which you can see at the very bottom. What do you think of Bradley and Grant‘s likenesses compared to the originals?
The pics from Bleeding Cool feature Brian Cox as Sydney Newman (the man that created Doctor Who), Sacha Dhawan as Waris Hussein (the first episode’s director), and Jessica Raine as producer Verity Lambert. Under the new images are pics of Newman, Hussein, and Lambert so you can see how Mark Gatiss has assembled a cast that bears an uncanny likeness to their real world counterparts.
