David Tennant to host new Doctor Who documentary for BBC Four

David Tennant is set to host a new BBC Four documentary to explore classic Doctor Who ahead of the show's 60th anniversary in November.

Talking Doctor Who sees David Tennant time travel back through the BBC archives to tell the story of the Doctor’s classic era, with a selection of rarely seen interviews and clips covering William Hartnell’s first incarnation right through to the seventh Doctor, Sylvester McCoy.

On the way, David compares some of his own experiences with the actors who came before him and shares special archive moments that reveal, amongst other things, how to film a regeneration, which actor was a master of modern gadgetry - including a collapsible caravan - and what the factors were that helped to decide how a Doctor selects his own individual and distinctive costume.

The hour-long programme is set to air on Wednesday 1st November at 7.30pm on BBC Four.
