In 2013 for the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, this gathering happened at the British Film Institute to discuss and go over the early early days of Doctor Who. The special focus was on the first four episodes, starting with An Unearthly Child. With those episodes the mold for Doctor Who was set, that you step into this thing which looks like a police box, that's supposed to blend in with its surroundings, but is intent on remaining a police box, and allows travel to all of time and space.

2013 marks the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who. We launched a year-long celebration with a screening of the show's opening story, An Unearthly Child (1963), and a discussion with some very special guests. Doctor Who alumni, including director Waris Hussein, script editor Donald Tosh, actors William Russell, Carole Ann Ford and Jeremy Young, and writer Mark Gatiss, reflect on their experiences of working on the programme and its enduring popularity.
