Just in case you couldn’t make it to the BFI’s Unearthly Child event, here are the highlights

As part of the BFI’s year-long celebration of Doctor Who for its 50th anniversary, each month it’s going to be showing a story for a different Doctor, and inviting members of the cast and crew to come and reminisce about their time on the show. This month, for the screening of the very first story, An Unearthly Child, director Waris Hussein, script editor Donald Tosh, and actors William Russell, Carole Ann Ford and Jeremy Young (and Mark Gatiss, for no really good reason) all showed up. And you can watch the highlights below, you lucky people!

    I’m Rob Buckley, a journalist who writes for UK media magazines that most people have never heard of although you might have heard me on the podcast Lockdown Land or Radio 5 Live’s Saturday Edition or Afternoon Edition. I’ve edited Dreamwatch, Sprocket and Cambridge Film Festival Daily; been technical editor for TV producers magazine Televisual; reviewed films for the short-lived newspaper Cambridge Insider; written features for the even shorter-lived newspaper Soho Independent; and was regularly sarcastic about television on the blink-and-you-missed-it “web site for urban hedonists” The Tribe. Since going freelance, I've contributed to the likes of Broadcast, Total Content + Media, Action TV, Off The Telly, Action Network, TV Scoop and The Custard TV.
