Quite surprised to that Doctor Who Explained is from the same production team that made Doctor Who Revisited with the same title sequence and all that.
Not bad explanation of what Doctor Who is about.
Many of the companion actors are interviewed but some of the companions as characters themselves gets a focus in this programme with Susan being the first companion, Sarah Jane Smith, being said to have the lasting impact on the Doctor and both of the female companions of the Eleventh Doctors.
Unsurprising that the Daleks and Cybermen gets talked about but didn’t think that the Weeping Angels got such a focus here with scenes shown of them from Blink.
The Blink footage of course includes Carey Mulligan as Sally Sparrow. Too bad Carey Mulligan herself wasn’t interview for this programme. No doubt her busy schedule would have precluded her being interviewed here.
There is the “Saving The Earth” segment with it pointing out the numerous times that Earth had to be saved by the Doctor with David Tennant noting that many stories had an Earth bias to it.
Quite amusing when Tom Baker said that he is almost 80 since he only turned 70 this year. Quite funny and I say this with affection for Tom that anyone would inflate their age from 70 to 80.
Interesting seeing the filming of The Day of the Doctor.
