  • Abstract: The British science fiction series Doctor Who embraces convergence culture on an unprecedented scale, with the BBC currently using the series to trial a plethora of new technologies, including: mini-episodes on mobile phones, podcast commentaries, interactive red-button adventures, video blogs, companion programming, and "fake" metatextual websites. In 2006 the BBC launched two spin-off series, Torchwood (aimed at a post-watershed audience) and The Sarah Jane Smith Adventures (for 11-15 year olds), and what was once regarded as an embarrassment to the Corporation now spans the media landscape as a multi-format colossus. This article critically explores many of the transmedia strategies the BBC have employed in re-launching this property. Has it resulted in a richer and more entertaining experience, or is it merely an economic exercise in merchandising and branding? Can these mediums really work together to create a coherent and satisfying whole?
