How well does Dr Who translate?

Written by on

I’m a big Dr Who fan. I’ve followed the series since I was young and managed to get my children to love it too. Dr Who is a very English phenomenon with little nods to English culture dotted all the way though, so I wonder how well the time travelling series will translate.

Dr Who is one of the the UK’s export successes

Dr Who is an international export success for the BBC with the series showing in Canada, France, China, USA, Iceland, Korea, Germany, Russia, Austrailia, New Zealand and Iran.

The BBC have produced his clip from The Wedding of River Song showing Doctor Who dubbed into Brazilian Portuguese, French, German and Italian for BBC Worldwide’s annual TV sales fair Showcase.

How well does it translate for you? (I like it in Brazilian Portuguese)
