THE success of Doctor Who and EastEnders across the world has helped the BBC's commercial arm to record profits.

BBC Worldwide, which sells the corporation's programmes and products, today announced profits of £89.4 million — up 62 per cent on last year.

EastEnders remains one of the top five best-selling BBC programmes across the world, but it is now joined by the revived Doctor Who and by modern dramas Spooks, Hustle, and Waking The Dead. Cult sketch series Little Britain continues to head the lucrative BBC DVD market.

Other key factors in the growth for 2005/06 were the sale of women's glossy Eve and the shifting of some titles to Origin, its specialist publishing arm in Bristol.
