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.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
