Sure, that's pretty much most of what they do. Last year's Copper was BBC America's first original dramatic production; before that, they just rebroadcast BBC productions, or at most BBC/BBCA co-productions such as Jekyll. (Although these days they rerun some American series like ST:TNG.)

And Brian Cox as Sydney Newman. (So is all the mian cast going to consist of people who were already in DW?)

Has BBCA run any of the previous BBC biopics (or 'Comedy is Misery', as they got nicknamed): The Curse of Steptoe (Phil Davis and Jason Isaacs as the two stars of Steptoe and Son), Fantabulosa (Michael Sheen as Kenneth Williams), Sooner You Than Me (David Walliams as Frankie Howerd), etc etc? Not that it would stop them taking the Who one if they didn't.

Anyway, can we start an internet meme of calling this 'The Real Anniversary Special'? Just to see how much it annoys BBC publicity...

In answer to your question, no, they haven't. One-off films like that, if they show up here at all, show up as direct-to-DVD features.

I could see BBC America picking this up because there's a marketing hook for it.

That seems to be the trend considering Jessica Raine, who will be portraying Verity Lambert, is going to guest star on Doctor Who when series 7 returns.

David Bradley is a great choice to portray William Hartnell as is Brian Cox.

I'm still crossing my fingers that William Russell and Carole Ann Ford will make a cameo appearance in it.

I suspect that the BBC will have a DW themed night, and perhaps as it gets closer to the actual anniversary to perhaps a story from each Doctor on BBC three.

Wouldn't it be interesting if he played Hartnell in the documentary and played the 1st Doctor in the anniversary special? Nice way to tie into itself! But, I'm getting ahead of myself there!
That would be pretty cool. And even better if Moffat took advantage of the same sets and had Smith's Doctor visiting the old console room as well.

Probably, although I'd have thought BBC Two or Four would be better suited.

From this week's Radio Times; An Unearthly Child director Waris Hussein meets actor Sacha Dhawan, who'll be playing him in the drama.

I don't think most of the BBC America audience would be familiar enough with the source material to find those films interesting.

Moffat isn't that smart to join the dots.

BBC haven't done a themed night for a long long time. I think they stopped doing those sorts of things. They were fun to watch, the Star Trek night, Red Dwarf night, Godzilla night.

Might be funny to stick a Police Box in the background of Eastenders.

Seriously wouldn't it bother people seeing an actor playing another actor playing a character, then seeing the actor just playing the character? Never mind breaking the fourth wall that's smashing it down with a mechanical digger!
