The BBC have confirmed that Doctor Who Unleashed will return for a second series on BBC Three and iPlayer next year to accompany Season 2 of Doctor Who.

The access all areas show will once again give viewers an unmissable insight into the world of Doctor Who 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.

Host Steffan Powell will resume the keys to the TARDIS once again 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.

Before then, Doctor Who and Doctor Who Unleashed will return this Christmas with Joy To The World, a festive specials guest starring Nicola Coughlan opposite Ncuti Gatwa in a script written by Steven Moffat.

Galway born actress, Couglan, has made a huge impact in film and television having starred in standout roles such as the hilarious Clare Devlin in award-winning drama comedy series Derry Girls, Penelope Featherington in the regency-era international sensation Bridgerton, and not to forget one of the Barbies in mega-blockbuster Barbie, alongside the Fifteenth Doctor Ncuti Gatwa.

On joining Doctor Who, Nicola Coughlan says: “I’m excited to join the Whoniverse under the leadership of the inimitable Russell T Davies. I’ve been a fan of Ncuti Gatwa for some time and getting to share the screen with him as the Doctor has been an absolute joy”.

Showrunner, Russell T Davies says: “This has been the most brilliant shoot, with Nicola lighting up the set and bringing joy. From Derry, via Bridgerton, to the TARDIS, it’s the trip of a lifetime.”

Doctor Who Season 1 is available to stream now on BBC iPlayer in the UK and Disney+ worldwide where available.
