Reply From BBC Complaints Regarding Confidential

We recently sent a complaint to the BBC regarding the axe of Doctor Who Confidential to get a reply for the visitors of The Gallifrey Times. Hopefully it will answer at least some of your questions.

We have now received a reply and it can be seen below:

Thanks for contacting us regarding ‘Doctor Who Confidential’ on BBC Three. We understand you’re unhappy the series is coming to an end. The ‘Doctor Who’ spin-off series, ‘Doctor Who Confidential’ has been a great show for BBC Three over the years, but our priority now is to build on original British commissions, unique to the channel. We regularly have to make difficult decisions and unfortunately sometimes they will prove to be unpopular with sections of the audience. We’d like to assure you the feedback we’ve received has been included on our audience log. This is an internal report of audience feedback which we compile daily and is available for viewing by all our staff. This includes all programme makers and commissioning executives, along with our senior management. It ensures that the issues our audience raise with us are circulated and considered across the BBC. Thanks again for taking the time to contact us. NB This is sent from an outgoing account only which is not monitored. You cannot reply to this email address but if necessary please contact us via our webform quoting any case number we provided.

Kind Regards
BBC Complaints
