Another Cast Member Joins DOCTOR WHO 50TH ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL Plus First Behind the Scenes Pictures


If you’ve all been good little Doctor Who fans, you’ve taken time out of your busy schedule to seek out and watch the first episode. And no, I don’t mean “Rose.” I mean the FIRST episode, “An Unearthly Child.” Go ahead and put that on your to-do list if you haven’t already, because the BBC and BBC America are putting together a great biopic for what went into making Doctor Who for the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special: An Adventure in Space and Time.

We told you a few weeks ago about Harry Potter and Game of Thrones actor David Bradley being cast as William Hartnell and today we have news that the relatively unknown actress Claudia Grant will be playing Carol Ann Ford, who played Susan (the Doctor’s granddaughter).

Today we also have the first set of Behind the Scenes pictures courtesy of Doctor Who TV.

I’ve got to admit that last one caused my inner child to gasp. I suppose it’s pretty rare to see a TARDIS with a dimensionally restrictive plywood interior. It makes my face pouty.

A date has not been officially announced for when the special will air, but we will keep you posted on the latest for the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special An Adventure in Space and Time, starring David Bradley and Claudia Grant on BBC America.
