Is the lack of Classic Doctor Who financial?

I, along with many other Who fans have been disappointed with the lack of Classic20130213-093655.jpg Doctor Who episodes being shown in the 50th anniversary year. With BBC America airing them as well as broadcasters in New Zealand and Australia doing the same, it seemed that BBC Worldwide were only concerned with fleecing the UK fan-base.
But, could the absence of classic who be financial? Christopher Biggins once stated in an interview that every time the BBC repeated an episode of Porridge, he, along with the other actors in the episode were paid £1,000. But, if UK gold played it, or it aired overseas they didn’t get a penny. I guess paying every actor involved in a classic story £1,000 per episode, just isn’t a viable option for them.
What do you think? Is the lack of Classic Who, down to the BBC’s financial constraints or, are BBC worldwide just interested in fleecing the fans?

 

Doctor Who: The Angel’s Kiss A Melody Malone Mystery

20120927-151127.jpgOn some days, New York is one of the most beautiful places on Earth.

This was one of the other days…

Melody Malone, owner and sole employee of the Angel Detective Agency, has an unexpected caller. It’s movie star Rock Railton, and he thinks someone is out to kill him. When he mentions the ‘kiss of the Angel’, she takes the case. Angels are Melody’s business…

At the press party for Railton’s latest movie, studio owner Max Kliener invites Melody to the film set of their next blockbuster. He’s obviously spotted her potential, and Melody is flattered when Kliener asks her to become a star. But the cost of fame, she’ll soon discover, is greater than anyone could possibly imagine.

Will Melody be able to escape Kliener’s dastardly plan – before the Angels take Manhattan?

Released to tie-in with the current Doctor Who series, which burst back on to our screens in early September, The Angel’s Kiss is inspired by Rory and Amy’s final episode, The Angels Take Manhattan. It is the first Doctor Who title from BBC Books to be published only in e-pub format, and the first to be written exclusively from the perspective of a character within the show – Melody Malone not only runs her own agency, she also happens to be the author of a successful series of novels, featuring one Melody Malone. Details of the 4 October release are available on the BBC’s Tumblog.
