Starburst Magazine - - Outside The Box -

It’s been an open se­cret for some months – showrun­ner Steven Mof­fat ap­peared to con­firm his con­tin­ued in­volve­ment at a pub­lic­ity event in New York re­cently (see #415) – but the BBC have now, with­out fanfare, con­firmed that Doc­tor Who will re­turn for a tenth (new) se­ries. Page 32 of the BBC World­wide An­nual Re­view, pub­lished on July 14th, re­ports on mat­ters con­cern­ing Cor­po­rate gov­er­nance and states “Dur­ing the year mat­ters un­der re­view in­cluded plans to launch the global genre brands BBC First in Aus­tralia and New Zealand on Fox­tel and BBC Brit and BBC Earth in Poland; and in­vest­ments in The Musketeers S3 and Doc­tor Who S10”. The up­com­ing Se­ries Nine, how­ever, com­mences on BBC One and BBC Amer­ica on Septem­ber 19th with Steven Mof­fat’s The Ma­gi­cian’s Ap­pren­tice, which will re­ceive its world­wide pre­miere on Au­gust 27th at a spe­cial screen­ing at Ed­in­burgh’s Film­house Cin­ema as part of The Guardian’s Ed­in­burgh In­ter­na­tional Tele­vi­sion Fes­ti­val. The screen­ing, which will be fol­lowed by an on­stage Q&A ses­sion, is al­ready sold out.
