Time They are a Changin’

 This is a sign of times we live in…

BBC Worldwide is to close the online BBC Shop, which sells Books, DVDs, BluRays and games related to BBC output.

Instead the company will concentrate on BBC Store, which launched last year and offers digital copies of BBC programs.

BBC Worldwide explained its thinking:

The DVD market has been in decline for a number of years as consumers move to digital viewing. The market no longer supports the commercial release of many of the titles we’re able to make available on BBC Store. BBC Worldwide returns profits to the BBC’s Public Service to reinvest in programming.

The shop closes on 30th March. A number of bargains, including items of Doctor Who merchandise, can be obtained while stocks last.

Peter Capaldi: ‘I’ve been asked to stay on in Doctor Who after Steven Moffat leaves’

When Steven Moffat announced his departure as Doctor Who showrunner earlier this year, there was only one question on everyone’s minds – would current Doctor Peter Capaldi stay on with new boss Chris Chibnall, or hand over the Tardis keys like former Time Lord David Tennant did when Russell T Davies left the series?

Now, RadioTimes.com can reveal that the BBC has asked Capaldi to stay on as the Doctor after Moffat’s departure – but the actor himself isn’t sure whether he’ll take up their offer.

“I’ve been asked to stay on,” Capaldi told RadioTimes.com, “but it’s such a long time before I have to make that decision.

“Steven’s been absolutely wonderful, so I love working with him. Chris is fantastic, and I think he’s a hugely talented guy.

“I don’t know where the show’s gonna go then. I don’t know. I have to make up my mind, and I haven’t yet.”

He concluded: “As Steven will tell you, it’s very difficult to say goodbye.”

In summary, you shouldn’t be surprised to see a very familiar Time Lord at the Tardis controls for a few years yet…
