Doctor Who’s Universe Is About To Expand With the majority of the Doctor Who franchise available on BBC iPlayer in time for the 60th anniversary, the Whoniverse opening sequence hints at showrunner Russell T Davies’ goals of ensuring everything is available in one place. With footage from both the classic and modern eras, and spin-offs Torchwood, The Sarah Jane Adventures, K9 and Company, and Class, it’s never been clearer that the universe has more to offer outside the main series.
But Doctor Who’s future isn’t just limited to the main series and the existing spin-offs, as Davies has already promised that there is more to come. iPlayer’s November 1 update will also see the debut of a new spin-off series titled Tales of the TARDIS, where former companions and Doctors come together to reflect on their past adventures. With a new series already set to drop and Davies promising that more is on the way, Doctor Who will become a large multimedia franchise once more. headtopics.com
