News regarding the new documentary series Doctor Who Confidential, broadcasting on BBC3 following each episode's transmission in the UK on BBC1: Each edition will have a title and a theme "covered by that week's episode [of Doctor Who] and looking back at how that theme has been developed in previous episodes with past Doctors." (The ratio of "New" to "Classic" Doctor Who will be about 60: 40, according to the report in DWM.) Interviews featured include Christopher Eccleston, Billie Piper, Russell T Davies, past Doctors and assistants, DWM and Big Finish, as well as interviews from fans (including, Outpost Gallifrey is aware, footage and interviews from several Doctor Who conventions.) The first edition is titled "Back from the Future" and examines "how the BBC approached the task of bringing back the Doctor." The second is "Aliens - The Good, the Bad and the Ugly", going behind the scenes on "The End of the World", including "making convincing aliens... prosthetics, and a visit to the Mill". The third - "TARDIS tales" - "looks at the role of the TARDIS, and the past times the Doctor has visited." Future editions will cover the return of the Daleks, the role of the companion and the possibility of time travel.
