This special one-off drama travels back in time to 1963 to see how the beloved Doctor Who was first brought to the screen. Actor William Hartnell felt trapped by a succession of hard-man roles. Wannabe producer Verity Lambert was frustrated by the TV industry’s glass ceiling. Both of them were to find unlikely hope and unexpected challenges in the form of a Saturday tea-time drama, time travel and monsters! Allied with a team of brilliant people, they went on to create the longest-running science fiction series ever, now celebrating its 50th anniversary

An Adventure in Space and Time is released on DVD on Dec 2 in the UK. Pre~order HERE. (Please note: it will not be released on Bluray at this time.)

So they make it in HD but won't release it in HD. I don't get that!

(It's the same with another, US, TV show; Pan Am.)

Weird.
