The creative head of BBC sci-fi drama series Doctor Who said that fan reaction to the show in China has been "thrilling" and hinted that future travels in time and space could take the doctor, played by Jodie Whittaker, to the country.

Speaking ahead of the launch of a new series next year, showrunner Chris Chibnall said he was delighted by how well the long-established series has been receiving by one of its newest audiences.

"The last series had more than 100 million viewers worldwide. it's a real privilege to do something that spreads around the world like that," he said. "Streaming means the show is now available to a much bigger audience, so, for me, the fan response from China in particular has been thrilling and unexpected. The doctor won't go to China in this new series, but would we like to do a story set in China? Yes, it'd be amazing."
