The BBC’s Response to Anniversary Concerns!

If you are one of the people who have been in touch with the BBC to express your concerns over Doctor Who Series 7 scheduling and the situation concerning the 50th anniversary special (with regard to a supposed “1x 60 minute special” as per literature at the recent toy fair), we have news for you.

The BBC Complaints department has issued a response, explaining that there has been no official announcement concerning their 50th anniversary plans. They’re also certain “that fans won’t be disappointed” when the time comes.

BBC Complaints’ representative Patrick McManus:

Thanks for your contact regarding ‘Doctor Who’ broadcast on BBC One.

I understand that you are feel there are insufficient programmes planned to mark the 50th anniversary of the series. I also note that you are unhappy with the way in which series 7 has been split into two parts.

Whilst I appreciate your concerns, we haven’t announced what we have planned to mark the 50th anniversary of ‘Doctor Who’ yet, but we would like to assure you that fans won’t be disappointed.

Additionally, please note that the decision to schedule series 7 in two parts was a creative one and we’re sorry you are unhappy about this.

Nevertheless, please be assured that I’ve registered your comments regarding this issue to our audience log. This is a daily report of audience feedback made available throughout the BBC, including to the producers of ‘Doctor Who’, as well as members of senior management.

The audience logs help to shape future decisions regarding BBC programming and output.

Thanks again for taking the time to contact us.

What do you think? Are the complaints concerning Series 7’s split valid? Do you think the BBC have more up their sleeves than a single 60 minute special?

Are Doctor Who fans being needlessly pessimistic? That comment box below is itching to know!
