The Doctor Rehoused!

We’re always fretting, us Doctor Who fans, worrying about our favourite show’s longevity and if it will get the boot in the blink of an eye. We’ve been hurt before, after all, the emotional scars of the show’s cancellation in 1989 still linger with us today and the failure of the studios to pick up a series of eighth Doctor adventures following on from the 1996 TV movie didn’t help either.

But maybe we can let go of some of these paranoia’s and realise that the people at the BBC now value the show as much as we do, they now recognise it as the flagship show it always was. To show this and to give us confirmation of Doctor Who’s long future, there is now a permanent set for Doctor Who in their newest and largest studio ever built.

As reported by BBC News, Roath Lock Studios will be the new home for three massive dramas: Doctor Who, Casualty and Pobol y Cwm. The TARDIS set will remain resolute and splendid all year round as it waits for more and more series with more and more Doctors to be filmed on it.

The studio, the size of three football pitches (take that football fans, you only get one pitch) opens officially today and is set to bring jobs to Cardiff and will be the new home for our good Doctor.

The future of Doctor Who only began to catch light in 2005, now 7 years later Doctor Who really starts to begin!

What happens when an eight year old kid watches the 1993 repeat run of Planet of the Daleks? He pretty much ends up here writing about the show that grabbed hold of him and never let go!

    Seems like just another move like they did when they went to Upper boat studios a few years ago. May even be a cost cutting measure. We’ll probably never know the difference on our screens but whenever there’s any type of further commitment, it’s always a nice thing and maybe this is partially for the big 50th as well.

    Does this mean a bigger Tardis set complete with boot cupboard and swimming pool?
