Do You Remember the First Time? was the episode of Doctor Who Confidential broadcast in conjunction with Blink. It was notable for being David Tennant's professional directorial debut. Because Tennant was either narrating or in-vision for every scene, it balanced out the "Doctor-lite-ness" of the episode it accompanied, converting 9 June 2007 into a Tennant-heavy broadcast day.

Although it contained a brief amount of material relevant to the production of Blink, the episode's main focus was the history of the BBC Television Centre, the studios where the bulk of the so-called "classic" era of Doctor Who was produced. Consequently, the show featured key creatives of the BBC Wales series — such as RTD, Phil Collinson and Steven Moffat — reminiscing about their memories of the original series.

Aspects of production covered Edit

The episode containd brief interviews with Carey Mulligan and Finlay Robertson, as well as an examination of how the Weeping Angels were performed. Since the Weeping Angels were given very little pre-broadcast publicity, it was the first time that fans got to see that they were actually people in costume rather than posable statues.

Remember also gave some general insight into the BBC Wales commissioning of Doctor Who, via a rare on-screen appearance of Jane Tranter.

Additional topics covered Edit
