No DOCTOR WHO Remakes Allowed

grandmoffThe executive producer and lead writer of DOCTOR WHO, Steven Moffat, has promised fans that the series will not be remade in any other country, because that would be… well, crazy.

Asked last week at BBC Worldwide Showcase in Liverpool, England, if any foreign TV channels have asked about making their own version of DOCTOR WHO, Moffat said:

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. SHERLOCK [which he also produces] and DOCTOR WHO are both doing rather well, but they couldn’t be more definitively British. They’re obtusely British. They’re about as British as it gets.

I totally agree with this. There is something that’s just… off about DOCTOR WHO that cannot possibly be replicated in America or anywhere else. Something about the worldview of the show is so inimitably British that it cannot be replicated or replaced by flashy effects and more money.

    • Funny. I missed that BuzzFeed piece.
      I would pay cash money to see Nicolas Cage play the Doctor! And I was just thinking the other day about how Jeff Goldblum would make an interesting Time Lord.
      And wouldn’t Cranston be a great Master? “I am the One Who Knocks!”

      • Indeed. Christopher Walken as the Doctor would be interesting. I guess it would be something like this..
        If I… Cross the………. Polarity.. Of………….. The netron…. Field. Shit…… Will………….. Happen…. To the TARDIS!”
