Each summer Doctors takes a break for Wimbledon. This year, so we can also bring viewers coverage of Euro 2016 and the Olympics whilst minimising further disruption to Doctors, the break will be longer than normal.

We look forward to Doctors returning to the BBC One schedule in September.

Does this TARDIS stop in Letherbridge?

Does this TARDIS stop in Letherbridge?

Doctors is the springboard for new talent: Eddie Redmayne and Emilia Clarke both started their careers here - and the next name to look out for is Pearl Mackie. Pearl's first role on TV was opposite Doctors’ Mandy Marquez, playing Anne-Marie, a friend who wanted a little more than to be just friends. But true love wasn’t to be, and now Pearl has moved on to play The Doctor's new companion, Bill, on Doctor Who. Congratulations Pearl!

See Pearl in action!

Sonnet Week was a chance for our writers and actors to try out something totally different.  Some of our actors had never done Shakespeare before and some were old hands at it.

Ian Midlane and Bharti Patel talk about their experiences in this exclusive Blog.
