TV Zone can reveal new details about Doctor Who: 60 Years Of Secrets And Scandals (1x90'), a new documentary which will air this November as the BBC celebrates the show's 60th anniversary.

This show reveals the behind-the-scenes stories of how the show was created and has stayed so popular for so long.

It features exclusive interviews with cast members including Sophie Aldred, Nicola Bryant and Frazer Hines alongside interviews with crew, including the show’s first director, Waris Hussein.

The show exposes the stunts that went dangerously wrong and the secrets of how the crew brought the on-screen monsters to life. And there are revelations about how some monsters and storylines created for the series proved to be so scary the BBC were forced to re-edit episodes.

There are also secrets about the scandalous treatment – and behaviour – of the show’s main stars, and revelations about the surprising link between a teenage Peter Capaldi and the series, long before he stepped into the main role.

The show reveals the surprisingly sexy fan spin-offs produced when the show was off air and how Doctor Who broke its own rules about sexual chemistry between the Doctor and the assistants as the series went on.

There are also revelations about the missing episodes of the show and the extraordinary lengths that fans have gone to in order to track down stories missing from the archive.

And the programme also exposes the huge fan backlash after the BBC attempted to cancel the show and how the reboot was nearly derailed.

Doctor Who: 60 Years Secrets And Scandals airs Saturday 25th November at 8:30pm on Channel 5. Stream previous Secrets & Scandals documentaries on My5.
