BBC planning Doctor Who through to season 15

May 31st, 2017 by bash Comments

Doctor Who is headed for at least five more series on the BBC.

That’s according to a press release which confirmed a new deal between the corporation and Chinese company SMG (Shanghai Media Group) Pictures.

The agreement will see the Doctor Who brand expanded in the Far East through the availability of a substantial Who catalogue (including spin-offs Torchwood and Class but not the eras of former and outgoing showrunners Russell T Davies and Steven Moffat) becoming available on Chinese TV channels and On-Demand services.

The release states that the deal includes new Who boss Chris Chibnall’s series 11 (which has yet to be filmed) as well as “a first look for Series 12-15”.

This would suggest that the BBC are hoping to continue Doctor Who for at least four more series.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
