As part of the 50th anniversary Doctor Who celebrations, BBC America will premiere the new biopic, An Adventure In Space And Time, on November 22nd (it airs the day before on BBC Two in the UK). The film documents the genesis of the character and hails from Sherlock co-creator Mark Gatiss. David Bradley stars as William Hartnell, who played the first Doctor in 1963. Brian Cox, Jessica Raine and Sacha Dhawan also feature. Meanwhile, BBC America has unveiled a spoiler-y seven-minute Night Of The Doctor mini-episode, a prequel to The Day Of The Doctor 50th anniversary special that will be globally simulcast on November 23rd. It’s after the jump, but once again, beware of spoilers. The BBC further announced today that there will be a live Afterparty on the 23rd following the Day Of The Doctor airing. Outgoing Time Lord Matt Smith will appear as will other previous Doctors and companions. Boy band One Direction will appear on the show live from LA. No word yet on BBC America’s plans for the live London event. Here’s the Adventure In Space And Time teaser and the mini-episode follows on the next page:
