The season split is never a good sign for a TV show and when the BBC announced that the latest season of Dr Who would be split people feared the worst. Rumours spread – it was inevitable.
Now showrunner Steven Moffat hits back at the claims…and he has some damn good points to make too! Check it out!
What did Moffat say? He told Richard Bacon on BBC5 Live Radio station: “It’s a huge money-spinner. It’s doing better than ever abroad – the global number of people watching Doctor Who has just gone up and up and up. It was the most downloaded show on American iTunes last year, so [there's] not a chance of the BBC giving up on Doctor Who.”
Reasonable point about the amount of money the show generates and a very definitive “this show ain’t gonna be cancelled” statement which at least puts my fears to rest!
In regards to why the show was split, he explains: “We’re just splitting it over Christmas, we’re making the same number of episodes as usual. We delayed it a few months to start it later in the year, that’s all that’s happened.”
