BBC drops Doctor Who Confidential
by Doc on Sep.28, 2011, under Television
BBC, needing to cut costs, has reportedly canceled Doctor Who Confidential, the behind the scenes features that aired on their BBC3 channel right after each episode aired on BBC1, as it as done since the series revived in 2005. The specials also appeared in modified form on the US DVDs, and bits of them can be seen between some commercial breaks on BBC America.
Facing the need to cut 20% of the budget, BBC decided to cut the show and focus on more original content as part of a “Delivering Quality First” initiative.
However, I suspect that behind-the-scenes features will still be featured on future DVD releases, but perhaps not as much and less produced.
