The BBC Wales Annual Report which is published today has singled out Doctor Who as an example of BBC Wales’s “considerable achievement” in 2005/06.
The Broadcasting Council for Wales singles out Doctor Who saying that its “combination of heritage and sophistication, together with the positive effect on family viewing, had been a huge achievement for BBC Wales”.
In his introduction Professor Merfyn Jones, BBC National Governor for Wales, says the show is at “the vanguard” of BBC Wales’s output.
The report also notes the work of BBC Cymru Wales New Media which pioneered “interactive applications for Doctor Who” including Attack of the Graske and the Tardisodes.
The show is also being used to develop new talent with the creation of “eight full-time, one-year training posts at BBC Cymru Wales, based in the art department of Doctor Who”.
