I'm not the biggest Doctor Who fan but I have enjoyed the reconstructed ones they've put out and I did like this special episode. I also never got round to seeing An Adventure In Space And Time
Well worth a watch, IMHO.

And although there are some factual inaccuracies in there, and some liberties taken for dramatic effect (as with all docudramas), by and large I believe it presents a fairly accurate picture of the early development of the programme:

Also definitely worth a watch is the extra "The Five(ish) Doctors", featuring Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy trying to get parts in the 50th Anniversary Special. Absolutely hilarious, along with a terrific scene with John Barrowman and a 'shocking' revelation (no spoilers!). Classic!
