Moffat: Doctor Who Will Always Be British

First Russell T. Davies shot down the idea of BBC Worldwide ever going halfsies with the USA and co-producing Doctor Who in a similar vein to spin-off Torchwood: Miracle Day but now – thanks again to our French correspondent Aurélie Demonchaux – Steven Moffat has weighed in with a characteristic response.

Speaking to French television show “J’irai Loler sur vos tombes” (which translates into the frankly awesome “I Will Lol on your Graves“: How exactly do you laugh out loud on someone‘s grave?) during his recent trip to France for the Paris Comic Con Moffat said he could never imagine anything other than the quintessentially British version of Who ever existing.

The interview with Moffat begins at the 16 minute mark- followed by a French version of Doctor Who (in French) which is completely baffling but does feature the Doctor slapping the man who invented the Rubic’s Cube.

About the Author


Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.

    Always be British? Is that why it is being promoted at this years SDCC as BBC America’s Doctor Who?

    • @bobbygage – surely that’s because it airs on BBC America? If it aired on BBC Antarctica, I’m sure the billing would be changed correspondingly…
