3. Doctor Who: the story of television classic
First broadcast on 23 November 1963, Doctor Who is the longest running television science fiction series in the world
This course will look at the history of the programme, beginning with the events which led to the creation of Doctor Who in 1963 by BBC’s head of drama, Sydney Newman, and the producer, Verity Lambert
We will then follow its history over the following five decades, including the Twelve Doctors from William Hartnell to Peter Capaldi and the many companions from Ian and Barbara to Clara. We will also look at the role of producers and script editors such as Terrance Dicks, Barry Letts, John Nathan Turner and Richard Adams. We will discover why Doctor Who was stopped in 1989 and how, against all the odds, it returned in 2005 to critical acclaim and is now viewed by millions, both in Britain and abroad. Each week we will view a number of episodes from each Doctor’s era.
This will be a 12 week course in the summer term, starting in April 2016. The course will take place on Tuesday evenings at Aquinas College, Nangreave Road, Stockport.
