    BBC has removed Doctor Who from Netflix, as well as Amazon Prime. I suspect they are going to be putting on their own paid streaming service.
    Actually the rights have been bought out by HBO so it'll be moving to their streaming service.

    That's an important article, it has two rating graphs. Series 11 is an anomaly which hasn't really been explained. Series 12 is between 9 and 10 in ratings.

    In Canada series 1 was on the public broadcaster, but the last few were on a cable Sci Fi channel. Internationally it used to be on Netflix then Amazon. Neither provided viewing numbers. I suspect BBC makes more from these markets than the share of the UK TV licence.

    Here's a life lesson for you.

    From the article you cited:

    So what’s the story behind the lower ratings? And do they actually mean Doctor Who is in danger of being taken off TV anytime soon? Well, the truth is complicated.
    Anytime someone feeds you that line, no matter if it's a politician, the media, a suit & tie or whatever, and follows it with a convoluted line of nonsense as that article does, you're being lied to.

    I hope I'm wrong. I hope they just end up firing Chibnall & moving on, but I think there's a good chance it's gonna get cancelled, or at least "rested" for a while.

    One would assume the two go hand in hand to a degree, but as they don't publish merchandise sales figures we won't know.

    Even then, the BBC is who take the revenue for merchandising of Doctor Who and even with the drop in popularity that take is significant. The only other show that has ever done as well is Top Gear.

    Hey, Hey, Ho, Ho, Chibnall has to go!
    Again. This is doubtful.

    started a topic finally watched the new eps

    finally watched the new eps

    and I must say that I am disappointed it started out ok , but as it went on, the preaching got so heavy handed that I could barely stand it , there is just no connection with the show, it just seems like the cast is just going through the motions, they are just doing it for the pay check, and guess what the next doctor is going to look like, it is going to be an indian, or , just the way the master becoming missy, we get to see the master as an indian, on a scale of 1-10, I give everything a 4, I mean I didn't even bother to record the show to disk, I just deleted the shows once they were done I give these shows a SOLID meh :-\
Working...
