New Doctor Who Drama on the Way

Viewers have been promised a look at how the first man to portray the lead role in TV's Doctor Who, William Hartnell, had his life transformed by the experience.
The BBC is gearing up to screen a drama about the programme's genesis soon. Mark Gatiss, who has both penned episodes of the show and appeared as an actor in it, has written the piece.

"Principally, it's the story of how Doctor Who was created, so we concentrate on the very beginnings and the first few episodes," he explained in BBC press materials.

"There are lots of treats for the fans but it's also the story of William Hartnell, the first Doctor and how the part transformed his life."

Anyone who is planning to watch this drama might well also want to try the Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff.

Found at Discovery Quay in the Welsh Capital, it could be a wonderful place to see while you're on hotel breaks with the kids in the area.

You'll get to see things like costumes and props from the show, and so much more - as well take part in an interactive story.
