Early this morning, London was treated to an eerie scene, one familiar to anyone who has seen the 1964 Doctor Who serial The Dalek Invasion of Earth. It's all part of the upcoming TV drama about the history of Doctor Who, An Adventure in Space and Time. Warning: autoplay video within.

Mark Gatiss, one of the producers of the TV special, which will explore the early years of Doctor Who's production, submitted this video diary of today's filming, in which the team prepared to recreate on the show's most famous scenes:


Update: Kuriositas also has a huge gallery of photos of the recreation.

Also, Radio Times has posted the first image of actor David Bradley (whom Harry Potter fans will remember as Argus Filch) as First Doctor actor William Hartnell.
