1:00pm – 1:45pm

Doctor Who is one of the most successful television shows of all time. Launched in the 1960s the science fiction programme is firmly established in British culture and a must-watch Saturday night staple for all the family. Daleks, Cybermen, the Tardis, sonic screw drivers and intelligent gloves are part of the lexicon, and the series has millions of fans worldwide.

Since the show started over 60 years ago, there have been over 870 Doctor Who programmes. We’re privileged to be joined by two of the show’s Directors: Emmy award-winning Director, Tim Combe, was at the helm in the early years of the famous science fiction series, working in the 1960’s and 70’s with the first three Doctors William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton and Jon Pertwee. Tim brought the Silurians to our screens as well as saving the Daleks from being permanently exterminated. Bafta-nominated director Jamie Magnus Stone was lead director for the twelfth and thirteenth series, directing the first ever female Dr Who, played by Jodie Whittaker.
