Doctor Who On A Lower Budget?
Here’s something you don’t hear every day – a TV producer saying he is fine with his new reduced budget.
Doctor Who producer Steven Moffat said he is not too concerned about the budget cuts on the upcoming season, which has been largely filmed already. Moffat told Digital Spy “Budget cuts are tough. I don’t like them, but they force you to be creative.
No one is going to say the show looks cheaper because it doesn’t.”
This man will get as much work from the BBC as he wants …
but he might not ever get a budget increase again.
Moffat went on to say “There will never be enough money to
make Doctor Who. We could spend Avatar’s budget and still ask for more, because it’s a show that’s set in every point in history and every place in the
universe.” He did acknowledge he could easily spend any amount allocated for the program.
The new season of Doctor Who starts in Britain on April 3
and in the United States on April 17.
