Doctor Who: A New Dimension was broadcast on BBC One prior to its related episode, rather than after it on BBC Three. It was not shown under the Doctor Who Confidential banner, though it has been generally considered "episode 0" of the series because it shares Confidential's production team and covers similar subjects.
