Doctor Who: ABC screening "An Adventure In Space And Time"

The ABC has confirmed that it’s going to show the 50th anniversary docudrama, “An Adventure In Space and Time” on Sunday November 24th at 8:45pm.
This is the other 50th anniversary special, but instead of taking place in the continuity of Doctor Who, it instead offers a look at the foundations of the series itself in a dramatic presentation featuring David Bradley playing William Hartnell… playing the first Doctor.
The official release reads as follows:

ABC TV will screen the highly anticipated Doctor Who 50th anniversary special – AN ADVENTURE IN SPACE AND TIME – on Sunday November 24 at 8.45pm on ABC1.
This will follow the encore screening of DOCTOR WHO: THE DAY OF THE DOCTOR at 7.30pm on ABC1.
This special one-off drama travels back in time to 1963 to see how the beloved “Doctor Who” was first brought to the screen. Actor William Hartnell felt trapped by a succession of hard-man roles. Wannabe producer Verity Lambert was frustrated by the TV industry’s glass ceiling. Both of them were to find unlikely hope and unexpected challenges in the form of a Saturday tea-time drama, time travel and monsters! Allied with a team of brilliant people, they went on to create the longest running science fiction series ever, now celebrating its 50th anniversary.
Stars: David Bradley as William Hartnell; Jessica Raine as Verity Lambert; Brian Cox as Sydney Newman and Sacha Dhawan as Waris Hussein.
Written by Mark Gatiss. Executive produced by Mark Gatiss, Steven Moffat and Caroline Skinner.
