Re: More popular worldwide: Trek or Doctor Who?

While Star Trek since going off the air eight years ago has done two movies, the most recent of which didn't exactly blow the box office away and has polarized fandom somewhat.

Although, it would not surprise me if more people worldwide are aware of Star Trek than Doctor Who.
I think it would be fair to say STID did "very well" at the box office - there are relatively few films that pass the $450m mark. "Didn't exactly blow the box office away" is somewhat disingenuous as a description of the movie's success IMHO.

Hypothetically, I think it extremely unlikely DW would get anywhere near a $100m+ budget if a feature were produced - and would be very lucky to get close to a box office haul even half as big as STID.
