No More Doctor Who Confidential: The Finale

Doctor Who Confidential: The Finale

From the BBC official site

For the past seven years, Doctor Who Confidential has put you at the heart of Doctor Who, providing a unique insight into the stars, the show and the entire production.

This journey reaches a fitting finale on Saturday when Doctor Who Confidential premiers a brand new mini-adventure starring Matt Smith as the Doctor. Viewers have seen the story, Death is the Only Answer, being made, watching the entire process from script to screen. Saturday’s episode, entitled When Time Froze, also includes the ultimate feature on River Song, with Alex Kingston providing a brilliant timeline of everyone’s favourite time travelling archaeologist.

The Confidential team captured the rebirth of the show back in 2005 and for over half a decade they have given an unsurpassed, access-all-areas insight not just into Doctor Who, but the magic and mechanics of making successful drama. From an episode directed by David Tennant, to the special edition that broke the news that Matt Smith would be the Eleventh Doctor, Doctor Who Confidential has always delivered the very best in must-see behind-the-scenes action.

The final episode of Doctor Who Confidential, When Time Froze, is on BBC Three on Saturday, immediately after The Wedding of River Song.

    I agree with all apart from Casualty, as I love all Med dramas, but it wouldnt help even if they did axe them as the are on BBC1, and DWC on BBC3 and unless they move DWC to BBC3 (which they won’t) and the others get axed then we’ll just get bundled with a load of other rubbish new shows!
    I am as gutted as everyone else, and hope that they find a solution!

    There is a full series, but its just being split between 2012-2013. They start filming series 7 in February, and the first half gets aired in autumn, and then next half in Summer/Autumn (unconfirmed).
    Hope that helps!

    Confidential is brilliant, and we love to see it, clearly they have underestimated it’s popularity, no sane person would think it wise to axe the show given how much it is enjoyed.

    Wilfred anyone ? A guy who thinks he’s a dog: this is the result of TV comedy that has run out of creative or even decent ideas.


    September 30th, 2011 - 10:03am

    The bbc should axe the other rubbish they show on bbc three. Dr who confidential should stay. Rubbish like Don’t tell the bride should go.

    BBC will never hand Americans the control of Doctor Who!!! It has been British for almost 50 years and it always will be.

    That is such an ill thought through view point and somewhat a LONE point of view I would say as well !


    September 29th, 2011 - 8:35pm

    hows this

    I find it idiotic that Doctor who confidential has been cancelled due to budget cuts.You have many shows that take more money that this as I see it it is just a camera following the cast and crew so I don’t see how that takes many of the budget you have many shows that you could cancel with bad ratings but Doctor who confidential seems to be doing good and there are many fans on it.The first day that it was told that it would be cancelled they created petitions and clubs on things on Facebook and twitter.So please take this in consideration

    We really need R.T.D back as when he was on the show around 10million minninum would tune in every week.
    But this year only 5 million will tune in so obviously the moff’s lost half the audience in just 1 year

    I can’t accept this. If you feel you strongly want it back and want to help, here’s what to do.

    First of all, make sure to drop the BBC a complaint ( Chances are you’ll receive a stock reply, but at least it’ll be registered. Try and keep it polite though.

    Second, follow @SaveDWC on Twitter (!/SaveDWC). The account has almost 6000 followers already and has seen support from Steven Moffat, Neil Gaiman, Tom MacRae, Russell Tovey, the Radio Times and Doctor Who Magazine. There’s also a Facebook page here.

    Third, sign the petition that is running here – At the time of writing it has over 14,000 signatures.
