Doctor Who it could be argued has never been stronger. It’s fanbase has returned in bulk after its return 10 years ago. In that ten years not only was the franchise reborn in spectacular fashion, it’s fanbase has now grown the world over. Now it’s not just a British TV hit, it’s a true worldwide phenomenon. But…how long will it last? How long could it last?
According to Stephen Moffat, it’s got at least 5 years worth of stories, “I thought it would last 10 years,” said the exec producer of the beloved Time Lord saga,. “I didn’t think it would last 10 years with BBC Worldwide trying to get me in a room to talk about their plan for the next five years. It’s going to to do a minimum of 15. I mean, it could do 26.”. Ten years on, our ratings are pretty much the same,” Moffat told Doctor Whomagazine. “Actually, internationally, bigger. No show does that! You’re meant to go down! Doctor Who just stays. It’s extraordinary!”
Extraordinary indeed, and with the birth of a new Doctor in Peter Capaldi wowing fans worldwide, it’s not hard to say that everyone is looking forward to the next season of Doctor Who.
