New Doctor Who: Production Company Name Hints at Shared Universe & Spinoffs
Who does not like to hear about Doctor Who? Well… this time there might be some changes, which can actually excite us more. Doctor Who is all set to regenerate again in 2023, on the occasion of its sixtieth anniversary, with current Time Lord Jodie Whittaker and showrunner Chris Chibnall exiting the series next year. Russell T. Davies.
The critically acclaimed producer is heading back to direct the show for the Fourteenth Doctor’s tenure, and fans are eager to see if he can bring Doctor Who back to the heights of David Tennant’s widely popular time in office in the TARDIS. The production company named Whoniverse 1 Ltd.,
which has a Doctor Who producer on board, has sparked wishful thinking about the franchise’s foreseeable term shared universe. With Doctor Who: Flux premiering, fans of the show have been excitedly making a guess on what the coming months of the series could encompass.
Gardner’s involvement with the Whoniverse company as a director suggests that it will be the production company for future Doctor Who episodes, beginning with the 60th-anniversary celebrations. Fans have coined the term ‘Whoniverse’ to pertain to the larger Doctor Who consistency that encircles the TV show.
Doctor Who Release Date
Even though the Thirteenth Doctor’s tenure is still in its final stretch. Whittaker and showrunner Chris Chibnall will leave at the end of three specials broadcast through 2022 as part of the BBC’s centenary celebrations in the Autumn of next year. Doctor Who will then have to deal with its ceremonies, because it will be 60 years old on November 23rd, 2023, when it first aired.
Doctor Who has always gotten a lot of ancillary mainstream press, especially because once it was off the air from 1989 to 2005, when The Doctor’s adventures were continued in a slew of books, comics, and even full-cast audio television shows produced by Big Finish. This choice of name could indicate that Doctor Who under Bad Wolf will see major growth of spin-offs that broaden the series’s world.
Season 13 would not only be the final season for Jodie Whittaker as the Doctor, but it will also be the final season for showrunner Chris Chibnall. Russell T.
Davies, who gave the audience a new outlook on life when he resurrected it in 2005, has been upheld as the executive producer for the upcoming season as well as future seasons, following his departure. And, according to a recent development, it appears that Davies will reconsider his previous plans to create numerous spin-off shows under a single, shared universe.
Doctor Who Whoniverse
Whoniverse 1 LTD is a new production company that has a while back been listed on GOV.UK. Viewers of the series are already familiar with the significance of this title. It is the name given to Doctor Who’s expanded universe, which Davies established more than a decade ago with shows like Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures.
If that is not enough to persuade you, consider that Julie Gardner and Jane Tranter are both directors of this new production company. Bad Wolf Production, which Gardner and Tranter co-founded, will co-produce the next season in 2023. For now, fans have to wait a long time. Stay tuned for more entertainment updates.
