The BBC Worldwide Showcase features the best of best every year, and this year is no exception. It opens its doors for this four day event on the 18th of February. This highly anticipated event is visited by over 700 buyers and covers thousands of hours of television content. Of course how could you have the best of British television content without featuring the longstanding television program Doctor Who?
In their recent summary of what to expect at the showcase, the Doctor Who portion was described as follows:
BBC Worldwide Showcase 2018 Key SlateIt may be subtle but it could give us a peek into the personality of the new Doctor. Though we will have to wait for the Autumn premiere of the new series in order to truly get to know this new Doctor played by actress Jodie Whittaker. Fortunately, the 65 minute series premiere episode should give us a proper introduction. Of course after the initial episode the format shortens to 50 minute episodes. It really makes you wonder what they are going to do with that extra 15 minutes. Whatever it is, I'm sure it will be out of this world.

Already highly anticipated, Series 11 heralds a brand-new era for Doctor Who with a world-class team at the helm. Incoming lead writer Chris Chibnall has a fresh and inclusive vision for the series. Bigger and bolder than ever, this series marks the arrival of Jodie Whittaker, the 13th Doctor – a super-smart force of nature, alongside a team of new and delightful characters. The show will be full of action and adventure, humour and thrills. An unmissable high-end drama everyone will enjoy.
