What a difference BBC America makes!

bbc america ad

Doctor Who is on a billboard, on the sides of buses, and there are screenings in major cities throughout the country, featuring Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, and executive producer Steven Moffat. What country is this? It's got to be the UK, right?

WRONG!!!! It's the United States of America!

So what's changed? When the show was relaunched in 2005, and when David Tennant became the Doctor there was nothing. Well, that was when the show was on Sci-Fi. Now it's on BBC America, the show's natural home, and these people just get it! They know that the show can be a huge success - it's already the #1 show on the channel, and want the show to be even bigger!

New Producer for Sarah Jane Adventures Series 4?

Sarah Jane AdventuresThe BBC is seeking a new producer to head up series 4 of The Sarah Jane Adventures according to an article today on ATV Network. It states that shooting is due to start in March and that the BBC will produce 12 episodes starring Elisabeth Sladen as Sarah Jane Smith.

This comes on the heels of yesterday's report in The Hollywood Reporter that The Sarah Jane Adventures creator and producer, Russell T Davies is spearheading a US version of Torchwood with Fox. We can assume the reason the BBC is seeking a new producer for CBBC spin-off of Doctor Who is due to the fact that Russell T Davies is in the US and if reports are correct, may be busy with the US Torchwood project.
