"At the Proms (CON episode)" is a title based upon conjecture.

Check the behind the scenes section, the revision history and discussion page for additional comments on this article's title.


At the Proms was the behind-the-scenes documentary about Doctor Who at the Proms. It was available via the BBC Red Button after the special's airing.

No Doctor Who Confidential titles or episode title were shown on-screen. Like The Ultimate Guide, it's assumed to be an episode of Doctor Who Confidential because of the commonality of production team and narrator. Like Music and Monsters, it was co-produced by BBC Music.

Aspects of production covered[edit | edit source]
