The BBC now all but admitting that they're "out of ideas for Doctor Who, and won't you viewers please send us some plot lines? Oh, and we won't pay you."

Doctor Who fans furious after BBC asks them to come up with new ideas - for FREE

The BBC sent an email to sci-fi fans asking them to send in any "intriguing un-told stories and stories ripe for reimagining"

Avid Doctor Who fans are outraged that the BBC has asked them to contribute new story ideas – for free.

Sci-fi stalwarts were sent a newsletter from BBC Studios looking to exploit their knowledge.

The email said: “In the latest Doctor Who survey we are keen to hear from a wide range of fans and viewers: from those joining with Jodie, to those with a far-reaching knowledge into the classic adventures of Doctor Who.

“We want to hear about any intriguing un-told stories and stories ripe for reimagining.”

The survey also asked fans to state which historical periods they would like the Doctor to visit or revisit.

The next series, written by Chris Chibnall, is currently being filmed but will not air until 2020.

Chris Kocher said: “I refused to give free story ideas. Supplied my email address and asked someone to commission me instead.”

Fellow fan Cliff Chapman agreed, wondering: “For new books? Or for TV? Is Chibnall’s imagination THAT barren? (Wait, of course it is...)”

BBC Studios argued: “We often seek input from Doctor Who fans who kindly volunteer their views about products or events they would like to see more of. In this case, we had a list of stories we wanted to tell across multiple publishing partners but wanted to get our audience’s opinions on what stories better resonated with them.”

Ah, right.

I am literally rolling on the floor laughing my arse off. That last bit from the BBC rather indicates that they just realized that their new PC/SJW Doctor (or rather the writing behind her) is rather out of touch with the audience, IMHO.

Show has been residing in an open casket for the last few years. This has to be the final nail in the coffin.

I've stuck with it in the vain hope that it might turn a corner and regain some grit and balls but I fear it's had its time and should be taken out back and shot.

It's still salvageable... just not with the hard PC/SJW/idiot crew they have running the show and network now.

I think they would do very well if they would hire someone like Christopher Nuttall (to name one British writer who I think could do an excellent job based on their prior work) to write their plots - and then stuck to them. No adding PC crap, no SJW sub plots tacked on, no stupid Brexit jokes taped on to the middle of a plot.
