Post by Admin-Emperor Dalek on Thu 25 May 2017 - 23:04

From Doctor Who news site:

Thursday, 25 May, 2017 - Reported by Chuck Foster
BBC Worldwide have issued a press release indicating that the entire catalogue of Doctor Who related shows will be made available in China via Shanghai Media Group Pictures, which includes a first look at Doctor Who up to its fifteeth series!


BBC Worldwide/SMG Pictures Doctor Who agreement (25 May 2017) (Credit: BBC Worldwide)
BBC Worldwide today announced a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with leading Chinese media company, Shanghai Media Group Pictures (SMG Pictures) that will see expansion of the Doctor Who brand in China.


The MOU was inked yesterday evening at a signing ceremony at BBC Worldwide’s Television Centre in London, with Mr Chen Sijie, GM of SMG Pictures and Jaclyn-Lee Joe, Chief Marketing Officer, BBC Worldwide. Madam Wang Jianjun, Director General President of Shanghai Media Group, Tim Davie, Chief Executive of BBC Worldwide and Kelvin Yau, GM, Greater China, BBC Worldwide witnessed the event.


The agreement will see BBC Worldwide working with SMG Pictures to increase the Doctor Who fan base in China, exploring future opportunities as well as exchanging expertise between the two teams.


The MOU comes on the back of a content deal that BBC Worldwide also signed with SMG Pictures yesterday evening. The deal will see the entire catalogue of Doctor Who including spin-offs, Torchwood and Class available on popular TV channels and on-demand platforms all over China.


The deal not only covers Showrunners Russell T Davies and Steven Moffat’s Series 1- 10, but also incoming Showrunner Chris Chibnall’s yet-to-film Series 11, well as a first look for Series 12-15.


Jaclyn-Lee Joe, Chief Marketing Officer, BBC Worldwide, said:
This marks the start of a longer and even more fruitful partnership with SMGP,” said . “Doctor Who already has a substantial fan base in China. Now, Chinese fans will be able to access the entire catalogue of Doctor Who and its spin-offs thanks to this agreement. The MOU is an affirmation of both parties’ commitment to build the Doctor Who brand and grow its fan base in China.
Chen Sijie, General Manager, SMG Pictures, said:
China is going through a time of tremendous growth and rapid market development. Everyone here is curious about popular cultures around the world. At the same time, they want to share their Chinese culture and values. Doctor Who, with its long television history and iconic place in popular culture, is a great representative of British pop culture. We hope that this partnership with BBC Worldwide will enable both parties, as well as Chinese and British fans to share and exchange ideas and learnings to grow the universe of Doctor Who in China.


BBC Worldwide and Oriental Pearl Group previously worked together on the theatrical release of Sherlock – The Abominable Bride as well as the upcoming launch of One Amazing Day a co-production with SMG Pictures. The entire catalogue of Top Gear, Top Gear UK and all the UK specials, as well as five series of Top Gear USA, six series of Top Gear Korea and both series of Top Gear China has also recently launched on BesTV, SMG’s linear television service. There has also been a CBeebies programming block on BesTV since 2014.


Shanghai Media Group Pictures is the film business unit of Oriental Pearl Group, held by Shanghai Media Group.
Doctor Who is a BBC Studios production for BBC One and a BBC AMERICA co-production.

Money that gets redistributed into the license fee, that's normally how it works.

I wish they gave us some TV shows in return, like a Doctor Who anime or manga or whatever it is.

I think your missing the point. BBC sells programmes abroad, to get like what you want, that would be if the BBC and Chinese wanted it, who knows...maybe the Chinese will love the show...

I wonder will they show the classic series, in particular Talons of Weng Chiang.

What I mean is with time if people in China like the shows, they could get the license to do an anime spin off.

That's Japan. China aren't exactly ones to go hunt down licenses, if they wanted to make a spin-off they'd create their own knock off version without a second thought for contacting the BBC (not wanting to generalise a whole country's industry, but there's a lot of places in China that don't care about international trading beyond how they can take advantage of it).

I'm sure you'll have realised a lot of people are saying this confirms up to Series 15, apparently this is just saying China will get the rights to the next 5 series if they happen, not when.

Nope, that was BBC Worldwide again in pretty much identical circumstances to this.
