Made at Riverside Studios between 1964 and 1968, Doctor Who is one of the world’s most successful and enduring television programmes. In 2023, it turns sixty and, in the run-up to the anniversary in November, we will be screening Riverside-filmed episodes every other month.
Join us on September 30th for a triple bill screening of episodes from the First Doctor (William Hartnell) era serial THE TENTH PLANET. It was William Hartnell's last regular appearance as the First Doctor, and the first story to feature both the regeneration and the Cybermen; a race of malevolent cyborgs that became a recurring adversary in later Doctor Who stories
We are delighted that BBC presenter and Doctor Who expert Matthew Sweet (host of BBC's Free Thinking and The Sound of Cinema) will be introducing this showcase and providing fascinating background on the creation of the first Doctor Who series and the episodes in the showcase.
Matthew Sweet is author of Inventing the Victorians (2001), Shepperton Babylon (2005) and The West End Front (2011). A familiar voice in British broadcasting, he presents Free Thinking and Sound of Cinema on BBC Radio 3 and The Philosopher’s Arms on BBC Radio 4. He has judged the Costa Book Award, edited The Woman in White for Penguin Classics and was Series Consultant on the Showtime/Sky Atlantic series Penny Dreadful. In the BBC2 drama An Adventure in Space and Time he played a moth from the planet Vortis. His fashion history column, The Line of Beauty, appears in 1843 magazine. His latest book, Operation Chaos: The Vietnam Deserters Who Fought the CIA, the Brainwashers and Themselves is published by Picador.
