Please note: This programme is no longer available to listen again to.

Mark Gatiss
star of The League of Gentlemen and a Doctor Who scriptwriter presents a new documentary examining how this year's adventures of the Time Lord became the most talked about television event of 2005.

Doctor Who is now lauded by critics and audiences alike who are united in their appreciation and affection for the new adventures of the Doctor and his companion Rose Tyler.

Featuring brand new interviews, exclusive music by Doctor Who composer Murray Gold, and excerpts from the new series, this programme looks at how Doctor Who became the nation's most popular television drama series of 2005.

It asks just how significant the departure of Christopher Eccleston was to the programme and its production team, if the success of Doctor Who has changed the battleground of Saturday night television and what lies in store for the Tenth Doctor as portrayed by David Tennant.

Key interviewees include: David Tennant, Billie Piper, Russell T Davies, Julie Gardner (executive producer), Phil Collinson (producer), Murray Gold, Alison Graham (Radio Times), and Peter Fincham (Controller of BBC One).

The programme also features new interviews with actors Camille Coduri (Jackie Tyler), Noel Clarke (Mickey) and Penelope Wilton (Harriet Jones) all of whom star in The Christmas Invasion,the special seasonal episode of Doctor Who on BBC One, plus directors James Hawes and Euros Lyn, and BBC television executive Jane Tranter.
