An evening of Doctor Who programming is coming to BBC4 on the 1st November, with a one-hour documentary and a special celebratory concert. More details here:

November 1st looks set to be the best day to be a Doctor Who fan. Not only is its huge back catalogue launching on BBC iPlayer (barring one major, notable exception), but an evening of Doctor Who themed programming is also coming to BBC4 on the same day..

Kicking things off at 19:30 is one-hour documentary  called Talking Doctor Who, which will see superfan and three-time Doctor Who himself, David Tennant, take a deep dive into the archives to guide viewers through the history of the show, featuring archive interviews with William Hartnell and Sylvester McCoy.

This will be followed at 20:30 by Doctor Who At 60: A Musical Celebration. Recorded at Hoddinott Hall at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff on 28th September, the concert featured orchestral versions of music from various eras, as well as the premiere of the new iteration of Ron Grainer’s iconic theme tune.

We’ll leave you with this rather lovely video recorded at the event, which saw showrunners Russell T Davies, Steven Moffat and Chris Chibnall sat round a table discussing/fanboying over their favourite show. Oh, and if you’ve been wondering exactly why Doctor Who’s first ever episode, An Unearthly Child, is currently missing from iPlayer, we’ve put together a handy explainer that goes through the whole controversy in detail.
