Well you shouldn\'t. It\'s not spoilers, it\'s not a clip from the anniversary special, it\'s a seven minute prequel to it which they want you to watch which is why the BBC and the Radio Times have put it on their websites. It\'s a must see, and it\'s absolutely incredible! :)

I would say this minisode is one of the exceptional pieces of film I have seen in a long time. Oh the thrill of seeing Paul in the role again, unfortunately I was reminded of Tim Finn and couldn\'t shake that distraction for a minute or two. I put the clip on my phone so I can watch it again and again when the mood strikes.

Thanks for setting me straight, Superman, or I\'d have missed it! I did, in fact, manage to dislodge my yung\'n from the PC and watch...it was fantastic! :)  

Sadly, I probably won\'t get to see  the Anniversary Special for quite awhile....but I am looking forward to it!



Hey, Bay! Good to see you posting! Hope all is well...or at least do-able. :)

Hitching a ride on Jan\'s sentiment, she always hits the nail on the head. I guess the entire world is thinking of your pretty islands, lets just hope the help is now starting to get through.

To those who have access to BBC TV live shows, BBC FOUR is currently (as in right now - 22:58 on Thurs 21/11/13) showing the first ever episode entitled \"An Unearthly Child\".

Just watched An Adventure In Space And Time again via the Iplayer. Truly a wonderful recreation of the roots of the show, and it was a smashing approach taken, to centre it round William Hartnell and how the magic of the show\'s premise took him over heart and soul, much the same as Scrooge was transformed a century earlier.

The two most magic moments for me were his tragic \"I don\'t want to go\" moment, foreshadowing Ten\'s anguish and use of those words before his regeneration, and his misery at filming his final scene but getting a glimpse into the future and seeing Eleven and joyously realising his legacy will go on for decades.

It was a great show, Supe. Some of what was shown was new to me and a lot I had forgotten. I\'m afraid that I sat there with the Radio Times on my lap as I looked up the character names as well as the actors names. I\'m also sorry that the 4 episodes of the first story are not available on iPlayer - these damned copyright rules.

May not be available to watch again, but the dvd box set of this (An Unearthly Child) , and the following two stories, The Daleks and The Edge Of Destruction (so, the first 13 episodes) plus quite a few documentaries on the creation of the show, have been out for some time now, so can be obtained ridiculously cheap. Here\'s such a link:
