Duration: 45 minutes

Confidential follows the Doctor inside a mysterious medieval monastery to find out just what is going on with 'The Flesh'.

We discover the truth behind Rory's latest love interest and learn the tricks about filming with doubles.

We find out what it's like to be a guest star on Doctor Who through the eyes of actor Marshall Lancaster and there are interviews with Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvill, Sarah Smart, Mark Bonnar and writer Matthew Graham.

  • Ep 5 Crew Dairy: Confidential gets Double Vision!

    Gloves on, scarves tightened, and hot water bottles steaming, the cast and crew of Doctor Who braved the big freeze and ventured out on location. Confidential joined them in various castles as they battled the snow and ice (not to mention frozen moats) to stick to the filming schedules and make sure that the episode was finished in time!

    Wandering around the sets we got a little confused as we seemed to be seeing double but soon realised this was key to Matthew Graham’s story and didn’t need to see the opticians after all! The whole team pulled together to create the seamless effects of the double Gangers and we were there to learn all the tricks of the trade.

    Marshall Lancaster gave us an insight into the day in the life on an actor, letting us stalk him with a camera for a whole day on set whilst the special effects team tried to work out how to keep the goo from turning to ice. Matt and Karen also introduced us to Charlie... a new addition backstage.
