    The Writers' Guild of Great Britain have praised Doctor Who at the Trades Union Congress (TUC) conference in Brighton, in a call for more funding for UK television productions reports BBC News. According to the Guild, Doctor Who showed there is "still an audience for quality family entertainment."

    They congratulated the BBC for Doctor Who's success in its return to television after a 16 year hiatus.

    Guild member Hugh Stoddart stated, "The popularity of the series demonstrates that there is still an audience for quality family entertainment, and that distinctive UK television productions can still provide a talking point for the nation."

    He continued, "while some imports and so-called 'reality' shows have their place in the schedules, they cost jobs and reduce opportunities for workers in our television industry."

    Staddart had launched criticism aimed at the BBC for "damaging cuts" in funding home-grown television written, performed, and produced in the UK.
