The Aftershow Edit

With the start of series 10 of Doctor Who came a new format for The Fan Show. Doctor Who: The Fan Show - The Aftershow was a new series which released "Aftershows" immediately after an episode of Doctor Who was finished broadcasting in the UK.

Bringing in people who've actually worked on the show, rather than a variety of outsiders giving their reactions, The Aftershow was the closest series 10 got to a Doctor Who Confidential or Doctor Who Extra, the latter of which ended with series 9.
