‘Doctor Who’ To Remain On Television For At Least Another Five Years

"It is definitely going to last five more years, I've seen the business plan. It's not going anywhere." says Steven Moffat.

When it comes to television series. The question often asked is will there be another series. When it comes to ‘Doctor Who’ its a question that hardly ever gets asked but in a recent chat with Variety Steven Moffat pretty much said that a tenth season is guaranteed.

When talking about the series Moffat said that he was working on the tenth series and added that he can see the series continuing to air new stories for at least the next five years.

“It is definitely going to last five more years, I’ve seen the business plan. It’s not going anywhere.

“And I think we can go past that. It’s television’s own legend. It will just keep going.”

The original classic run of Doctor Who aired new stories from 1963 until 1989 and had an 18 month break in that run due to Sir Michael Grade trying to axe the series.

When discussing the future of Peter Capaldi in the lead role Moffat said, “Peter Capaldi is going nowhere.”

‘Doctor Who’ continues on Saturday, November 7 on BBC One.
