Re: More popular worldwide: Trek or Doctor Who?
There is somewhat of waxing and waning to it. When ST was it's peak in the ninties Doctor was off air (aside from 96). So to a certain degree ST was making the headlines, just as DW is now partly because it is on the air.
Sure production values have changed, and the budget has increased but in many respects today's DW is more or less exactly the same show as it was in 1963.
On the continent of wild endeavour in the mountains of solace and solitude there stood the citadel of the time lords, the oldest and most mighty race in the universe looking down on the galaxies below sworn never to interfere only to watch.
