Bright Branch Media is producing new access-all-areas Doctor Who spin-off show Doctor Who: Unleashed, to air on BBC Three and iPlayer this November.

The host is Steffan Powell (BBC Gaming Correspondent and former Radio 1 Newsbeat Presenter). After every episode of Doctor Who, viewers can switch over to BBC Three or iPlayer as Powell gets exclusive interviews with the stars in front of the camera, as well as those behind it.

Doctor Who: Unleashed has been produced by Bright Branch Media for BBC Studios for BBC Three and BBC iPlayer.

Russell T Davies, Doctor Who Showrunner says: “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 says: “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) says: “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.:
