Doctor Who Executive Producer and lead writer Steven Moffat has said how happy he is that Doctor Who has finally come to India, talking on the revitalisation of the show in a new interview with the Press Trust of India.
The show, which began airing on the FX channel on May 15, will be broadcast in it’s entirety, up to and including the forthcoming Series 9, the station currently already halfway broadcasting the Christopher Eccleston season by broadcasting the show each week night… but the Moff is staying tight lipped as pertains to the coming series itself:
[speech_bubble type=”drop” subtype=”a” icon=”moffatcircle.png” name=”Steven Moffat”]I am delighted that Doctor Who is coming to India and it certainly seems to be the case that where Sherlock is successful, Doctor Who is also popular. I can’t reveal much about the ninth season as we are still filming and everything is top secret at the moment but loads of brilliant stuff to come[/speech_bubble]
FX have been heavily promoting the show with a series of quite fantastic trailers:[fbvideo link=”https://www.facebook.com/FXIndia/videos/vb.117763098286699/975672019162465/” width=”700″ onlyvideo=”1″] [fbvideo link=”https://www.facebook.com/FXIndia/videos/vb.117763098286699/973524572710543/” width=”700″ onlyvideo=”1″]
And Steven highlights the unique combinations that make Doctor Who such a success around the world:[speech_bubble type=”drop” subtype=”a” icon=”moffatcircle.png” name=”Steven Moffat”]It’s a very strange combination… It is a very old show but it always feels like it is new because it revitalises itself with a new Doctor something that other shows can’t do. It is young and old at the same time and keeps refreshing itself. There is always loads of humour in Doctor Who and there is always lots of horror in the show. We are always trying to push it to the limits but most of the stories floating about it are not true.[/speech_bubble]
Doctor Who is broadcast on the FX Channel every night at 9pm. Series 9 will air in the UK in the autumn/fall of 2015.
