The BBC has announced that the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation are to screen the second series and the Christmas Special of Doctor Who.
Doctor Who supremo Russell T. Davies said “We’re delighted to have the CBC on board for another season. They have been the perfect partner on Doctor Who – sharing the editorial vision at the outset, then running a strong campaign from sexy posters to slick witty trailers, and best of all having the confidence to schedule the series in a big showy prime time slot.”
“Once again Canadian viewers will be amongst the first to see the adventure. It all kicks off with a Christmas Special – just wait till you see what we do with Santa…”
Speaking for the CBC Slawko Klymkiw, Executive Director Programming, said, “It is great being part of such an innovative project with BBC. We’ve enjoyed great success with the first season of Doctor Who and are looking forward to season two with great relish.”
