The Doctor Who watchalong events have become a big part of lockdown life for many fans, offering the unique chance to watch cherished episodes of the sci-fi series with the people who made them and get some behind-the-scenes insights.

Last weekend, David Tennant and Catherine Tate got involved in the action, setting up a special shared Twitter account to revisit the epic two-part finale to series four, The Stolen Earth and Journey’s End, with many tuning in for the ride.

The event also saw the release of a touching Sarah Jane tribute in memory of the late Elisabeth Sladen.
