Mark Gatiss is preparing to write a major BBC2 biopic about the genesis of Doctor Who to celebrate the drama’s 50th anniversary next year.
Details of the project are being closely guarded by the BBC, but it is understood that it will be titled An Adventure in Space and Time – a reference to Doctor Who’s original subtitle – and feature the key personalities involved in creating the sci-fi franchise
