I think most BBC productions (Doctor Who included) are made with selling to other countries in mind, but that's how TV is made nowadays. That said, I think Doctor Who is quintessentially British and I actually think that is part of the reason it sells well. They could Americanise it, by making the doctor an incredibly sexy, sassy man or woman who kicks ass, but I think they would miss the point of the series. Bit like the US remake of Red Dwarf where (IIRC) they made everyone except Kryten (Who was still played by Robert Llewelyn) incredibly sexy, sassy and heroic instead of the bums and misfits the characters in the UK series are.

Don't forget they tried to Americanise Doctor Who in 1996 and look how that turned out lol.

Re: Renewals & Cancellations

They will all be renewed. After the Elseworlds crossover this week they confirmed next year's as being Crisis on Infinite Earth for next year.

That will involve every show.

Excellent news about The Rookie - really enjoyable so far; funny and gritty - reminds me of the "Southland" cop series.

Nor really surprised as the last series was rather disappointing.

Re: Renewals & Cancellations

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has been renewed for a 3rd & 4th season. Netflix must like the viewing figures from just one season aired.

Re: Renewals & Cancellations

That's good news.

I wonder if they will end up filming them back to back like they did with seasons 1 & 2.

I would think so as they've ordered 16 episodes to split into 2x8 episode seasons.
