In this special anthology of clips and interviews, featuring newly-released material, Elisabeth Sladen journeys back to the recent past to delve into the show’s dazzling success. With the help of extracts from radio programmes as diverse as Go 4 It, Jo Whiley, PM, Newsbeat and The Now Show, she explores the run-up to the launch of Series 1 and follows the programme’s progress right up to 2009, with the impending departure of David Tennant.
