The BBC however, has no such intentions to get rid of one of its flagship shows and the proof is in the pudding as the corporation nears completion in the first phase of building its drama village that will be home to not only other dramas but to Doctor Who as well!
Doctor Who and The Sarah Jane Adventures (as well as others) will be filmed in this area as soon as it is completed and it reflects the bright future that the BBC sees in our favourite television show.
The BBC produces some of their shows at sites such as Llandaff and Upper Boat but this will all change shortly as all the programmes move to â€œthe villageâ€.
Next year, Doctor Who and The Sarah Jane Adventures will move from their current location and into this massive filming arena. The total size of â€œthe villageâ€ is 170,000 square feet which is the equivalent of three football pitches!
The first phase of work that has been completed and will be marked by a ceremony on Thursday.
