Brief Create a trail for the 50th anniversary episode.

How it was done Director Matt Lossoso and Framestore VFX supervisor Oliver Bersey created the tour through Doctor Who history.

To recreate William Hartnell’s Doctor as a high-resolution, colour image, Lossoso sourced a still from the black-and-white series and placed elements from a copy of the image over the top of the original in Photoshop.

Bersey worked on the compositing, the image, the look, the colour and the tracking, adding subtle 2D manipulations to create a 3D appearance as the camera moves past the Doctor.
