What is this episode about

Throughout its sixty-year run, Doctor Who has attracted millions of devoted viewers, making it the longest-running science fiction programme in the world. Behind the scenes stories of the show’s creation and its enduring popularity are revealed in this show.

Nicola Bryant, Frazer Hines, Sophie Aldred, and the show’s original director, Waris Hussein, are among the behind-the-scenes crew members interviewed in this exclusive programme. The show reveals the crew’s dark secrets, including the stunts that went horribly wrong and how they brought the monsters on screen to life. The revelations also include details regarding the storylines and monsters that the BBC had to rework because they were too terrifying.

Also revealed are the shocking connections between a young Peter Capaldi and the show, which he had before he played the lead role, as well as the scandalous treatment and behaviour of the show’s main stars. During the show’s off-air runs, fans created some shockingly sexy spin-offs, and Doctor Who eventually broke its own rules regarding the amount of sexual chemistry that could exist between the Doctor and his assistants.

Also revealed are the episodes that have mysteriously disappeared from the show’s archive and the incredible measures fans have taken to recover them. Also revealed in the show is the massive fan backlash that ensued when the BBC tried to cancel the show, plus what almost derailed the reboot.
