Doctor Who has been running since 23rd November 1963. Nearly 52 years later, the show is still on our screens. In 1989 the show was cancelled by the BBC. In 2005 Russell T Davies brought the show back to our screens. The show celebrated it's 50th Anniversary in 2013. Then this year (2015) it celebrated it's 10th Anniversary. Confused? No need to be, it celebrated it's 10th Anniversary since the Revival in 2005.
The BBC have put out a plan to keep the greatest Sci-Fi show on for another FIVE years. The BBC are expecting it to do more than that though. Will it do another 50 years? Steven Moffat has actually revealed that when Russell and the BBC brought the show back in 2005, featuring Christopher Eccleston and Billlie Piper, he wasn't expecting it to last this long.
“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". “So it’s going to do a minimum of 15 years.”- Steven Moffat
BBC Bosses have warned the writers that the show can only do these planned five years if they can find the actors and actresses to be in the show. Moffat has admitted in the DWM that "It isn't easy to find new Doctors".
To keep the show going, the people of it are going to need to be hardworking and passionate about it. The show does require hard work otherwise if the show is tacky people will lose interest in it. With Top Gear currently not on the BBC anymore, Doctor Who is going to have to prove itself that this is going to be the top show of the BBC.
With the effort put into the show, there's no reason why it can't go on for another 50 years!
