Steven Moffat, writer of Doctor Who and Sherlock

Foreign Doctor Who Remake Would Be “Dreadful” Says Steven Moffat

The BBC Worldwide Showcase event took place in Liverpool this week, and among the shows being promoted for sale overseas was, of course, Doctor Who.

Steven Moffat was on hand, and spoke to BBC News about the show (and Sherlock and Coupling too).

Among the many questions he was asked was a topic which we discussed in last week’s podKast – could an overseas version of Doctor Who work?

Says Moffat:

If anyone were to ask me, I’d say it’s an absolutely insane idea.

You couldn’t have more than one Doctor Who in the world. It would just be dreadful.

This is a debate that is already underway here on Kasterborous following the podKast – leave your thoughts and tell us whether you think a US or other overseas version could work or not.
