London offers Doctor Who celebrations

7th January 2013

This year the British Film Institute (BFI) is planning to mark the 50th birthday of the Doctor Who television series.

BFI Southbank will be holding a number of special events that will pay homage to the sci-fi programme and will focus on a different Doctor each month.

It is expected that many of the actors who have played the time travelling alien will appear at the venue, including William Hartnell, Matt Smith, Christopher Ecclestone and David Tennant.

"The BFI is very proud of our long relationship with both the BBC and the Doctor Who production team," said BFI programmer Justin Johnson.

"As well as the TV work, we also plan to play newly digitally restored versions of the Peter Cushing films, courtesy of Studio Canal. This is the perfect opportunity for old fans and new to come and learn about the genesis of the show and its continuing journey."

Events include the premiere of a specially restored story featuring Doctor Who Jon Pertwee and a special preview of An Adventure in Space and Time - a drama written by Mark Gatiss in honour of the 50th anniversary.

To be doing this enormous and exciting project for the BFI is just a dream come true," added Doctor Who's executive producer Caroline Skinner.

"Some of the stories we're going to show are thrilling, surprising, funny and just plain classic TV."

The BFI is close to Waterloo London Underground station and the mainline rail station, so is ideal for Doctor Who fans staying in central London hotels over the next 12 months.
