Talking Doctor Who

Talking Doctor Who, presented by David Tennant, is a 60-minute documentary celebrating the 60th anniversary.

Read the official synopsis:

"As part of the 60th anniversary celebrations of Doctor Who, David Tennant time travels back through the BBC archives to tell the story of the Doctor’s classic era, with a selection of rarely seen interviews and clips covering William Hartnell’s first incarnation right through to the seventh Doctor, Sylvester McCoy.

On the way, David compares some of his own experiences with the actors who came before him and shares special archive moments that reveal, amongst other things, how to film a regeneration, which actor was a master of modern gadgetry – including a collapsible caravan – and what the factors were that helped to decide how a Doctor selects his own individual and distinctive costume."

The documentary special coincides with over 800 episodes of classic Doctor Who on BBC iPlayer. This is the first time all eras of the beloved BBC sci-fi series are curated under one roof. An Unearthly Child is omitted due to a rights issue.

Doctor Who returns for three 60th anniversary specials, starring David Tennant (Doctor Who) and Catherine Tate (Donna Noble), this November on BBC One, BBC iPlayer and Disney+ outside the UK and Ireland.

Talking Doctor Who is on BBC4 and BBC iPlayer on 1st November.
