Doctor Who: Doctors pay for your medical needs

Doctor Who stars are reportedly paid by their employer for their medical work, with the series producer David Richardson claiming that it is a “normal thing” for actors to receive “care” from their employers.

“So, you know, we are paid for our work and I think the idea that they are making a profit is totally wrong.””

Doctor Who: ‘We’re not looking for profit’ It comes as Richardson revealed that the show’s creators have not only offered to pay actors for their work, but also “we’re not making money”.”

The BBC has not responded to requests for comment.

Earlier this year, a report claimed that actor Peter Capaldi and fellow Doctor Who star Jenna Coleman had been “lucky” to be paid by the BBC for their roles in the popular sci-fi series.

In the first episode of Season 7, Capaldi played the role of the Doctor, who is played by the actor’s former co-star Jenna Coleman.

The series, which premiered in 2017, has been hailed as a “revolutionary” way for the BBC to give its iconic brand new shows an original spin, with its first episode, ‘The Day of the Moon’, featuring a fictional story of space exploration and the birth of humanity, already viewed as a hit.

The show has also been praised for its storytelling, with several episodes, including ‘The Time of Angels’, ‘The Eleventh Hour’ and ‘The Pandorica Opens’ receiving critical acclaim, with some critics calling it the best episode of the series. 

Earlier this month, Richardson told the Today programme: “It is the way of working and it’s the way that we’ve always worked, and the way we’ll continue to work as long as we have the budget.”
