Would a break be good for Doctor Who?

Alastair wonders whether a hiatus would be beneficial to the much-loved Doctor Who...

Feature

Right, let’s get it out the way: I love Doctor Who. But is it becoming jaded?

Revived in 2005, the show has become a globetrotting ratings hit for the BBC and a (restored) staple of Saturday night television. The affection is not ironic, and only partially sentimental, for the writing and the budget reflect a drama fit for the modern audience. Older aficionados may tune in to contrast old and new but, ultimately, a new generation of fans have become smitten. Gone is the singular memory of scarves and tawdry sets. Meet The Doctor with more awards than regenerations.

The success is largely owed to the show’s necromancer, former Executive Producer Russell T. Davies and the Tenth Doctor, David Tennant. Never before in the show's history have two men invested as much of themselves in their role and character. »
