This episode goes behind the scenes of The Doctor Dances

Simon Pegg narrates a behind-the-scenes look at the new series of Doctor Who, following the production team, writers and cast as they bring the Time Lord back to the screen. A look at the strange science of Doctor Who, from the fantastical nanogenes to the technical gizmos and gadgets. Not forgetting, of course, the sonic screwdriver.
