2MTL 37: Doctor Who vs. American Culture?

Doctor Who might be a tough sell to a mainstream American audience even if it had the marketing and access resources big home-grown TV shows have. I've got no basis for evaluating the show's place in British culture, but there are things about the show's format and leading character that a U.S. producer wouldn't go with these days…

(Note: Yes, in the podcast I omitted the fact that the McGann movie aired on the Fox network, but that was a one-shot deal that for various reasons went essentially unnoticed in the States.)
