An Adventure in Space and Time DVD review

Take a trip back to the beginning of Doctor Who with this superb drama

Mark Gatiss' one-off drama about the creation of Doctor Who is a poignant and charming companion to the show's 50th anniversary episode. While the anamorphic 1.78:1 transfer on this DVD holds up rather well, it's a shame that there's no Blu-ray on the cards as a production this handsome is crying out to be seen in hi-def. Among the extras you'll find a touching tribute to William Hartnell, an 11-minute Making of… featurette, two deleted scenes and four reconstruction clips (including a fun cameo from Gatiss).
