Moffat: Confidential Axe a “Bad decision”
Steven Moffat has given his reaction to the controversial axing of Doctor Who Confidential.
“It seems hard to grasp. All shows have their time, and all shows end, but not, in all sanity, while people still watch and love them,” he says in the latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine. “And going by the numbers and the outcry, this show was watched and loved everywhere.”
He adds: “I’m not supposed to say it, but I’m going to anyway: bad day, bad decision. I know these are straitened times. I know we’re all at sea and the night is colder – but you don’t start burning the lifeboats to keep warm.
“Or to put it another way, you might want to think about the future if you’re planning to live there.”
The magazine also shows its support of the Save Doctor Who Confidential campaign and providing a link to the petition, which is currently at almost 44, 000 signatures. If you haven’t done so already, show your support by taking a moment to sign it. A count will be taken midnight Friday 28th October 2011 and sent to BBC Trust.
