Doctor Who will air until at least 2020

Huw Fullerton, writing for RadioTimes:

If fans were concerned about the future of Doctor Who in the next few years, they can rest easy – Steven Moffat has laid out some assurances.

Speaking on the long-term plans for the series, Moffat said: “I thought it would last ten years. I didn’t think it would last ten years with BBC Worldwide trying to get me in a room to talk about their plan for the next five years!”

Interesting piece which also goes into how Doctor Who's ratings are staying consistent in the UK and growing internationally;

Ten years on, our ratings are pretty much the same. Actually, internationally, bigger. No show does that! You’re meant to go down! Doctor Who just stays. It’s extraordinary!
— Steven Moffat

Ultimately, it's nice to hear that the BBC have such faith and support for the show and that it's not going to be ending any time soon. Here's hoping that Ben Stephenson, head of BBC drama, is right when he says "there's absolutely no reason why it can't do another 50 years".
