The BBC has announced Doctor Who Extra – a brand-new series, exclusively on iPlayer. The broadcaster says the programme is much more than a ‘making of’ show, as it follows Peter Capaldi every step of the way throughout the creation of his first season as the Doctor.
Over the course of 12 programmes, the BBC traces the highs and lows of Doctor Who’s most ambitious run of episodes yet, getting the inside take on Series 8 from the people who made it.
The Doctor Who Extra team had unparalleled access to stars including Capaldi, Jenna Coleman and Samuel Anderson (series regular Danny Pink) plus guests Frank Skinner, Keeley Hawes, Michelle Gomez, Ben Miller, Foxes and many more. Writers, such as Lead Writer/Executive Producer Steven Moffat, and directors also contribute, as they spill the beans on the on and off-screen drama.
Each 10-minute Doctor Who Extra episode will be available after that week’s Doctor Who episode on BBC One.
Audiences will also be able to access Doctor Who Extra via the BBC’s Red Button.
