Charlie McDonnell - Runner was one of several short episodes of Doctor Who Confidential broadcast via BBC Red Button in the run-up to A Christmas Carol. Like all in this special series of Confidential, it featured young internet film-maker Charlie McDonnell giving his thoughts on his ramble round the Upper Boat Studios. It was thus a kind of video diary, but one nevertheless produced by, and released under the banner of, Doctor Who Confidential.
Aspects of production covered Edit
Additional topics covered Edit
Much of the episode was concerned with depicting the pedestrian reality of the Upper Boat Studios. Very little of the footage actually showed anything to do with the production of A Christmas Carol, although Charlie did eventually make it onto an empty set.
