DOCTOR WHO Will Go On For At Least Another Five Years

Good news Whovians! Series showrunner Steven Moffat revealed that there'll be at "minimum" another five years of Doctor Who.

Speaking to Doctor Who magazine and quoted by the Radio Times, Moffat laid out the long-term plans for the show: “I thought it would last ten years. I didn’t think it would last ten years with BBC Worldwide trying to get me in a room to talk about their plan for the next five years!”

He added: “It’s going to do a minimum of 15. I mean, it could do 26!”

Moffat, who is also behind BBC monster hit Sherlock, was careful though to think too far ahead with all the itinerant problems associated with a show like Doctor Who. “That’s not to say its easy," he said regarding the next five years and beyond, "[i]t’s not easy to find new people. It’s not easy to find new Doctors. That could be the danger – that you start to think that it’s easy. There’s nothing easy about doing Doctor Who.”

Despite first screening in 1963, the rebooted Doctor Who celebrated its tenth anniversary this year and the show continues to pull in strong ratings in the U.K. and growing figures internationally, prompting the BBC's continued enthusiasm for more episodes. “Ten years on, our ratings are pretty much the same. Actually, internationally, bigger. No show does that! You’re meant to go down! Doctor Who just stays. It’s extraordinary!” said Moffat.
