Online Doctor Who Extra Show To Launch With New Series

BBC iPlayer have announced the launch of a new exclusive online programme to accompany the new series of Doctor Who on BBC One.

Doctor Who Extra is a 'making of' show and more. In a format sounding much like the recently axed Doctor Who Confidential, it will give the inside take on series 8 from the people who made it through unparalleled access to the stars, guests, writers and crew. 

What's more, every edition will be taking a look back at the Doctor Who archives to examine how the episode fits into the show's 51 year history: so look out for appearances from David Tennant, Matt Smith, Christopher Eccleston and the classic Doctors. 

Each ten-minute Doctor Who Extra episode will followthat week's premiere broadcast of Doctor Who on BBC one. It will be available online on BBC iPlayer or via the BBC's Red Button.
