“The Screenwriters’ Festival 2009 presents a raft of sessions devoted to one of the most remarkable and enduring icons of British television. It all started out as a mild curiosity in a junkyard in 1963 and went on to captivate and terrify family audiences across the country for 26 years, then to be revivied in 2005 to thrill the nation all over again. Now, as head writer Russell T Davies hands over the showrunner duties to Steven Moffat and 10th Doctor David Tennant prepares to regenerate into 11th Doctor Matt Smith we take a closer look at how this special show has stood the test of time.”
