This new way to enjoy selected episodes of Doctor Who will begin with the first 60th anniversary special The Star Beast, with the Fourteenth Doctor himself David Tennant, and producers Phil Collinson and Vicki Delow giving the audience their stellar commentary. David and Phil will return and be joined by Showrunner Russell T Davies as they commentate the third special The Giggle.

Russell T Davies, Showrunner says:

“For years, Doctor Who has been providing top-level in-vision commentaries for selected episodes, on DVD. But we’re now bringing this to the iPlayer - as soon as you’ve watched The Star Beast, you can see exactly what David Tennant thinks of it, scene by scene! I think Doctor Who has the greatest behind-the-scenes coverage of any show in the world, and we’re determined to keep expanding it!"

Doctor Who returns on Saturday 25th November on BBC One in the UK and Ireland and iPlayer in the UK and on Disney Plus in the rest of the world with The Star Beast, the first of three special episodes with David Tennant as the Fourteenth Doctor to coincide with the 60th anniversary. Ncuti Gatwa’s first episode as the Fifteenth Doctor will air on Christmas Day.

In-vision commentaries will be available on The Star Beast and The Giggle on BBC iPlayer after their transmission on the 25th November and 9th December
