When Time Froze was the episode of Doctor Who Confidential broadcast in conjunction with The Wedding of River Song. It was the final televised episode of Doctor Who Confidential.

It was most notable for a lengthy segment called River Song: Her Story, in which Alex Kingston narrated a biography of River Song. The episode also included the debut of Death is the Only Answer, a mini-episode written by a group of schoolchildren as part of the BBC-sponsored "Script to Screen" contest.

Though the series concluded production, plans were announced to revive it in 2013, while short behind-the-scenes features were aired in conjunction with Series 7 of Doctor Who. These features would later expand into Doctor Who Extra in 2014, a series of 10 minute instalments which were made available on BBC iPlayer and the BBC Red Button following the broadcast of their accompanying Series 8 episodes. The first instalment of Extra, attached to Deep Breath, was also screened in cinemas following the premiere's theatrical simulcast.
