David Bradley Confirmed To Portray First Doctor Who Actor In 50th Anniversary Biopic


David Bradley Brian Cox Sacha Dhawan

David Bradley has been confirmed as the actor who’ll portray William Hartnell in An Adventure In Space And Time, a biopic specially being made to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Dr Who.

Hartnell was the first actor to bring the Doctor to live on television screens back in 1963, and the Mark Gatiss-penned biopic will focus on the creation and making of that first series of what would go on to be one of the most popular science fiction names in the world. Bradley, one of the stars of Harry Potter, was understandably thrilled to have signed on for such a role. "I'm absolutely thrilled," said the 70-year-old actor in a statement reported by Digital Spy. "Mark has written such a wonderful script not only about the birth of a cultural phenomenon, but a moment in television's history. William Hartnell was one of the finest character actors of our time and as a fan I want to make sure that I do him justice. I'm so looking forward to getting started."

Other stars who’ve been named in the project include Jessica Raine, who’ll be playing Doctor Who’s first producer Verity Lambert. Brian Cox (not the science guy) will be playing Sydney Newman, the Canadian producer who helped devise Doctor Who, and Sacha Dhawan, who directed the first ever show.

After Earth Trailer


Cypher Raige is a renowned military general who finds himself and his frightened 13-year-old son Kitai in the middle of a deadly asteroid storm while on their aircraft on the way to their home planet Nova Prime to see their family. When they are hit, they end up crashing on to a dangerous and quarantined planet that is revealed to be Earth 1000 years after mankind was evacuated following a set of global disasters. Now it is almost entirely a jungle with savage evolved creatures roaming the land, but Kitai must brave the danger and remember that his fear is only in his mind as he treks into the wild to recover a distress beacon that he must use to call for help as his father is in a critical condition and close to death after being thrown across the ship in the crash. Little do they know that the unfamiliar new earthling species are not the only danger they must face as a brutal alien has now escaped onto the forgotten planet.

'After Earth' has had a string of different screenwriters working on it including director M. Night Shyamalan ('The Sixth Sense', 'Signs', 'The Last Airbender'), Stephen Gaghan ('Traffic', 'Rules of Engagement'), Gary Whitta ('The Book of Eli') plus additional dialogue from Michael Soccio who has previously worked with star Will Smith when he wrote four episodes of 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air'. This sci-fi adventure is set to hit cinemas in the UK from June 7th 2013.

Starring: Will Smith, Jaden Smith, Isabelle Fuhrman, Zoe Kravitz, Sophie Okonedo, Kristofer Hivju, David Denman, Sacha Dhawan, Lincoln Lewis, Chris Geere,
