Documentary about the life of William Hartnell

BBC Two is to air a mini-documentary tonight (November 21) about the life of Doctor Who star William Hartnell.

Five-minute film William Hartnell: The Original will explore what happened to the actor after he left his role as the first Doctor in 1966.

The documentary – not previously included in tonight’s TV listings – will air at approximately 10.25pm, immediately following the Mark Gatiss-penned drama An Adventure in Space and Time.

Charting Doctor Who’s origins and early days, An Adventure in Space and Time stars Game of Thrones actor David Bradley as Hartnell.

William Hartnell: The Original will feature rare archive footage and brand new interviews with Hartnell’s Doctor Who co-stars, including Carole Ann Ford (Susan) and Peter Purves (Steven).

Matt Smith, Peter Davison, Hartnell’s granddaughter Jessica Carney and Doctor Who’s original director Waris Hussein will also feature.
