The programme was the first in-depth documentary chronicling the long-running BBC TV series Doctor Who, being first broadcast the day after the final episode of the show's fourteenth season was transmitted on BBC1. Introduced by Melvyn Bragg, the programme features many clips from episodes of the show transmitted to date, along with interviews of cast and fans, including families, children, students, teachers, psychologists and educationalists. Tom Baker and outgoing producer Philip Hinchcliffe both contributed interviews, while behind-the-scenes footage of the recording of The Talons of Weng-Chiang (the most recently broadcast adventure) from rehearsals and pre-production planning, were included.
The show was never repeated on the BBC, but has been included on both the original and 'special edition' DVD releases of The Talons of Weng-Chiang.
The programme was produced and directed by Tony Cash, with Bill Morton as Executive Producer.
