UK PREMIERE: Watch The Doctors Revisited: The First Doctor At 2pm This Afternoon

The Doctor Who documentary series The Doctors Revisited makes its UK debut on Watch this afternoon at 2pm with a show dedicated to the First Doctor, William Hartnell. It will be followed by the classic episode The Aztecs at 2.30pm.

Each of the eleven shows explores a single incarnation of the Doctor through clips and exclusive interviews with actors and showmakers associated with the programme, including the surviving Doctors themselves, and looks at key adventures, significant foes and the best-loved companions. Contributors to the series have included Steven Moffat, John Barrowman, Hugh Bonneville, Neil Gaiman and Caroline Skinner. David Tennant is interviewed for the shows focusing on the first to the fifth Doctors. BBC America have been airing one special per month since January and the first eight programmes have also aired in New Zealand and Australia. 

Each special will will be followed by a complete adventure for the classic series or a double episode for the modern era. The series will air on Saturdays and Sundays between the 12th October and 16th November.
