Tales of the TARDIS is a Doctor Who spin-off series created to celebrate Doctor Who’s 60th anniversary. The series is exclusively available on the Whoniverse, a new home on BBC iPlayer for all DWU content.

The six-episode series consists of six classic Doctor Who serials, with each serial edited together to form a single episode. Newly filmed material with the serial's original cast bookends each episode, with the Doctor and their companions telling tales within "a remembered TARDIS".

The spin-off was executive-produced by current Doctor Who showrunner Russell T Davies along with Julie Gardner and Jane Tranter, and was written by Davies, Pete McTighe and Phil Ford. Sam Watts, the composer for The Sarah Jane Adventures, returned to score the series.


In DWM 596, Doctor Who script editor Scott Handcock cryptically referred to an August kick-off meeting for something called "TOTT". Tales of the TARDIS was then officially announced on 30 October, 2023.

Russell T Davies clarified on Instagram[1] that, though the BBC and Bad Wolf had struck a production and distribution deal with Disney Branded Television for new episodes of Doctor Who, there are currently no plans to bring TOTT to Disney+, with "no Disney money" being involved in the production. For the time being, the series will be exclusively available in the UK via BBC iPlayer.
