Who’s worked out well for Sci-Fi?

David Tennant has some fun in CasanovaDoctor Who, that’s who. Turns out that even if you air it in a crap time slot (Friday night) and forget to mention kids might like it, you can still double your ratings compared with last year’s output.

Nicely done, Eccles. Let’s see what DT does for the US as the cold winter nights set-in. Marie? Lisa? Anyone want to hazard a guess?

PS: Please find enclosed one picture of David Tennant.

I’ve edited Dreamwatch, Sprocket and Cambridge Film Festival Daily; been technical editor for TV producers magazine Televisual; reviewed films for the short-lived newspaper Cambridge Insider; written features for the even shorter-lived newspaper Soho Independent; and was regularly sarcastic about television on the blink-and-you-missed-it “web site for urban hedonists” The Tribe.
