Doctor Who: BBC confirms show going behind the scenes of Christmas special

Doctor Who Tardis

As well as the Doctor Who Christmas special, Twice Upon A Time, that’s going out on Christmas day, the BBC has another treat for Who fans lined up.

A one-off Radio 2 show, hosted by Jo Whiley, went behind the scenes of filming of the episode. It’s an Access All Areas Doctor Who special, and the programme will feature interviews with Peter Capaldi, David Bradley, Pearl Mackie and Steven Moffat.

The episode is going to be on Radio 2 on Thursday 21st December, and here’s the synopsis…

As Peter Capaldi calls time on his adventures in the Tardis, Jo has exclusive access to the Doctor Who team. She catches up with the stars of the series on the set including Pearl Mackie, David Bradley, exec producer extraordinaire Steven Moffat, and the Doctor himself. Plus, Jo hears from outgoing companion, Matt Lucas, and digs into the BBC Doctor Who archive.

There will be stories from behind the scenes including how Matt approaches being recognised by fans, the radical ways in which Pearl’s life has changed, Pele’s reaction to signing a Brazil shirt for the Doctor and how Doctor Who has always been with Peter Capaldi – from dressing up as a Dalek as a child, to karaoke singalongs to The Killers all in the name of getting into character…

Plus, Radio 2 listeners will find out which member of the team has a penchant for Chas and Dave!

It had us at Chas & Dave. The show will be on from 8pm to 10pm.
