Doctor Who Almost Cancelled When Tennant Left?

There’s an article on the Metro website where Steven Moffat dropped a bombshell! At the Hay Literary Festival, he claimed the BBC thought Doctor Who ‘wouldn’t succeed at all’ without David Tennant. According to Moffat, it was Russell T. Davies who once again came to the shows rescue! ‘I think there were plans maybe to consider ending it. It was Russell T. Davies saying, “you are not allowed to end it”‘. So RTD not only brought the show back from the Wilderness, but may have also staved off cancellation. I find it unlikely that they seriously considered axing the show for a second time, but you never know…

  1. Wow, I kinda do believe it because all the Dr Who fans I know went batshit as soon as they found out David Tennant was leaving, then I looked it up on the internet and saw a similar reaction (by similar I mean some were MORE crazy than the people I knew personally).
