99: An Adventure in Space and Time

AN ADVENTURE IN SPACE AND TIME (2013, William Hartnell and co, Doctor Who)
I uphold a theory that it’s impossible for a Doctor Who fan to watch this and not have a tear in their eye. David Bradley, Brian Cox, Jessica Raine, Sacha Dhawan – that’s the best cast ever. Mark Gatiss has written the loveliest script ever for a truly monumental docu-drama. The sets are absolutely beautiful, perfect recreations of the originals. David Bradley’s performance is haunting yet still comedic in places. This is surely the most comprehensive and accurate account of the genesis of Doctor Who ever (barring a documentary called “Beginnings”). With amazing performances and amazing script, this is absolutely stunning. 10/10. 100 words.

TOMORROW, for the hundredth 50 Word Review (party time!) it's the penultimate "Doctor Who @ 50" review, with 1983 special "The Five Doctors", reviewed in 50 words...
