The Story of Doctor Who
Tue 30 Dec, 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm 60mins

Be prepared to disappear behind the sofa once more.

The much loved and longest running TV sci-fi series, Doctor Who, is fondly remembered. All its unique components appear in abundance, rubber monsters, spooky music, terrifying villains, planets in peril plus behind the scenes gossip and of course the Doctors.

40 years after the cosmic hobo first landed on BBC television in his time travelling TARDIS, The Story Of Doctor Who interviews the main names associated with the series including all the surviving TV Doctors - Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy. The programme tells the tale of this unique British phenomenon from the viewpoint of those who were at the scary end.
