RTD: It’s Now Impossible For Doctor Who To Ever Be Axed
Russell T Davies has said he thinks it’s now impossible for Doctor Who to get axed again.
The former Doctor Who showrunner told the RadioTimes: “It’s now impossible for it to ever be axed. It’s certainly heading that way. Could you imagine if it was axed now? There would be uproar in the streets. Twitter would be set on fire.”
He adds: “Who would have thought? If you look at the last ten years: ten years of rock solid ratings! It’s bizarre to an old-school Doctor Who fan like me; its success continues to be extraordinary.
“Also, there is a current generation who will keep it alive in a generation’s time. As long as there’s an audience, that audience will grow up loving it and want to make their own and it’s self-perpetuating.”
