To go alongside the upcoming new season of “Doctor Who”, which arrives on Disney+ around the world and on the BBC in the UK and Ireland, a brand new behind-the-scenes series called “Doctor Who: Unleashed”, has been announced which will give viewers an unmissable insight into the world of “Doctor Who”.

Host Steffan Powell (BBC Gaming Correspondent and former Radio 1 Newsbeat Presenter) has been given the keys to the TARDIS and, after every episode of “Doctor Who”, viewers can switch over to BBC Three or iPlayer as Steffan takes viewers on a journey showing them just how this out of this world drama is made. With exclusive interviews with the stars in front of the camera, as well as those behind it, Unleashed is the ultimate companion to “Doctor Who”.

Russell T Davies, Doctor Who Showrunner, said in a statement:

“Over the years, I meet so many people who were inspired to find careers in TV, because of the behind-the-scenes material the BBC would show. And now it’s back, in the grand old tradition of Doctor Who Confidential, but in a brand new form, Unleashed! So a whole new generation – and faithful fans of old – can see what the stars and the crew get up to behind the cameras.”

Jo Pearce, Bright Branch Creative Director and Doctor Who: Unleashed Executive Producer, said:

“This series gives audiences access to all areas, led brilliantly by Steffan Powell, viewers are invited to see what really goes into the making of Doctor Who. It’s been such a privilege to create this show and we’re so grateful to the cast and crew who welcomed us in and allowed us to tell the story behind the drama.”

Fiona Campbell, Controller, Youth Audience (BBC iPlayer and BBC Three) also added:

“Doctor Who is a show that needs no introduction, so it goes without saying that BBC Three and iPlayer are thrilled to introduce this incredible new series that invites viewers into the world of Doctor Who, showing them just what really goes on.:

Steffan Powell, Host of Doctor Who: Unleashed, said in a statement:

“When you’re told Russell T Davies is asking for you to present a show, you say, ‘when does he want me?’ Doesn’t matter, I’ll be there… There’s a really fun and fascinating group of people bringing Doctor Who to life – I can’t wait for the audience to meet them. I’m so chuffed to have been trusted to help tell, in all its glory, the story of what goes into making the magic happen.”

The series is a new 30-minute factual entertainment series produced by Bright Branch for BBC Studios for BBC Three and BBC iPlayer, commissioned by Kalpna Patel-Knight, Head of Entertainment Commissioning and Fiona Campbell, Controller of Youth Audience (BBC Three and BBC iPlayer). The Executive Producer for Bright Branch is Jo Pearce and the Series Producer is Ian Durham. The Commissioning Editors for the BBC are Rachel Ashdown and Pinki Chambers.

The show will be released on BBC Three and iPlayer this November. No international release details on this series have been announced. The new “Doctor Who” 60th anniversary specials will be released this November on the BBC in the UK and Ireland, and on Disney+ everywhere else.
