Fifty Years Now!
17 August 2013 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Enjoyable documentary(20 years ago!) about my favorite TV series covers the important aspects of the show, including interviews with surviving cast & crew, behind the scenes footage, outtakes, and commentary on why the show remained so popular years after its cancellation.

Some lighthearted comedy bits aren't so funny really, but it is an affectionate tribute to a celebrated British institution that is still popular around the world.

Recently put on DVD with 'Shada', the unfinished Tom Baker story from Season 17. Well worth watching again for nostalgia purposes, this documentary may be a model for other such specials, now that the series is having its 50th birthday this year, having premiered on 23 November 1963, on a late Saturday afternoon...
