An Adventure in Time and Space, the 50th Doctor Who anniversary movie

I am not sure if I should be happy or I should weep, but, as BBC announced yesterday, Matt Gatiss has been commissioned by BBC Two to write a drama to tell the story of the Doctor’s genesis. The movie is set to air in 2013 as part of the Doctor Who 50th anniversary celebrations.

From my point of view, the mystery of Doctor’s origin is a part of great flavor of the the Doctor Who series. I appreciate a good movie, but I do not want a solve a mystery and leave an empty “space” instead of it. I would rather open the possibility to ask new questions, to let other mysteries enter, to be surprised.

The BBC today announces that a special BBC TWO drama has been commissioned to mark the 50thanniversary of Doctor Who next year.

An Adventure in Space and Time will tell the story of the genesis of Doctor Who since its first broadcast on 23 November 1963.  Exploring all aspects of the longest running science fiction series to date, the special one off 90 minute drama will also look at the many personalities involved in bringing the series to life.

Written by Mark Gatiss, it is Executive Produced by current Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat and Caroline Skinner.  The single drama was commissioned by Ben Stephenson Controller, Drama and Janice Hadlow, Controller of BBC TWO.
