24 Carat[2] was a Doctor Who minisode written by Pete McTighe and released in 2021. Labelled a mini-episode and entity unto itself by its creator McTighe,[1] it was released as part of A Business Proposal for Mel!, a longer YouTube webcast which also included a trailer for the Season 24 Doctor Who blu-ray (packaged in between the two halves of the minisode, acting as a sort of ad break) and interview clips with various actors who had appeared in Season 24.

The webcast was notable for featuring the live-action return of Bonnie Langford to the part of Melanie Bush (which she had previously reprised in audio format with Big Finish) and also featured Sylvester McCoy reprising his incarnation of the Doctor.
