William Hartnell: The OriginalBookmark and Share

Thursday, 21 November 2013 - Reported by Marcus

The BBC has announced a new short documentary on the first Doctor William Hartnell will be screed on BBC Two tonight, directly following the Mark Gatiss docu-drama An Adventure in Space and Time.

William Hartnell: The Original is five minute programme which looks at what happened to Hartnell after he left Doctor Who. The documentary features rare archive footage and brand new interviews with many who worked with him, including Carole Ann Ford, Peter Purves and Waris Hussein as well as Matt Smith, Peter Davison and Hartnell’s granddaughter, Jessica Carney.

The programme is described as a revealing and affectionate portrait of a much-loved actor, and can be seen at 10.25pm on BBC Two

Note to those recording by EPG: this late addition does not currently have its own entry in guides such as the Sky Planner or even on the BBC's own iPlayer schedule - it isn't clear at present whether this will change, or that the current scheduling times of An Adventure in Space and Time will cover the documentary.
