    The whole affair is thoroughly riveting, even if you're not much of an old Whovian, hell it even works for non Whovians too. Missing it would be your own loss, trust me!

    Although not showing the whole creation of Doctor Who, An Adventure in Space and Time makes you cheer for the people who made Doctor Who a worldwide phenomenon and makes you feel proud to be a Whovian.

    I was almost (ALMOST) crying in the last scene, and that's a very hard thing to do.
    Much better than the more popular Day of the Doctor which was kind of disappointing.

    Gonna be honest, I find "An Adventure Through Space & Time" much better than "Day of the Doctor". It's so much more interesting, and even got me choking up at the end. It has more heart and better writing. DOTD is still good, but I like this film more.

    There’s a breezy propulsion to An Adventure in Space and Time--written by Sherlock's Mark Gatiss, a member of the Steven Moffat mafia--as it charts the evolution of Doctor Who and the invention of so many things beloved by Whovians the world over.... But it’s David Bradley who gives this telefilm its heart.

    "Doctor Who" fans may get a little more out of "An Adventure in Space and Time" than non-Whovians. However, even for those who don't watch "Doctor Who" regularly, it's a terrifically entertaining period piece with a lot of heart and appreciation for TV history.

    With warmth and gravity, [David Bradley's] the heart and soul of this grand Adventure.
