Doctor Who will feature on tonight's Newsnight from 10:30pm on BBC Two.

On tonight's (Tues 31 October) Newsnight, Toby Hadoke takes a look through "60 years of Time Lord tales to see when Doctor Who has dabbled with politics and social commentary". The film features contributions from former showrunner Steven Moffat.

It comes a day after the BBC unveiled The Whoniverse, the world where you can find every Doctor, every companion and, terrifyingly, hundreds of monsters that have appeared in Doctor Who.

From the 1st November, The Whoniverse will become the official name, and dedicated home, for all shows within the orbit of Doctor Who which will live on BBC iPlayer.

With over 800 episodes of Doctor Who content already in the back catalogue, The Whoniverse will launch with a brand new logo, and every piece of Doctor Who content will carry a brand new ident, instantly bringing all the Doctor Who worlds together in one place and it will continuously expand.

The first exclusive content to land in the Whoniverse will be Tales of the TARDIS, a brand new six-part series that reunites beloved classic Doctor Who duos, as they board a very special TARDIS on a nostalgic voyage through space and time.

Newsnight airs weeknights at 10:30pm on BBC Two and iPlayer.
