BBC Worldwide’s Record

Doctor Who profits for BBC WorldwideDoctor Who has helped BBC Worldwide hit a record profit this year for the corporation, with overseas sales at £140 million.

The significant figure, is heralded as “indicative guidance” and shows a vast improvement on 2009’s £103 million.

Sold in more than fifty territories, Doctor Who continues to be one of the company’s biggest money-spinners. According to BBC Worldwide, the show has been sold to more than 50 territories, with over 3.3m DVDs and more than 7m action figures sold in 2009 alone.

Given that 2009 saw just 5 new episodes of Doctor Who, this is a remarkable response from fans around the world.
