The Bad Wolf Corporation was the company that took over Satellite Five after the defeat of the Jagrafess and turned it into the Game Station. Game shows made by the corporation included The Weakest Link, Big Brother, What Not to Wear, Stars in Their Eyes, Call My Bluff and Countdown.
The corporation also created androids for each of the games, including the Anne Droid, Davinadroid, Trin-E and Zu-Zana. They were designed to look similar to the original hosts and even had robotic versions of their voices. (TV: Bad Wolf)
The name of the corporation was influenced by Rose Tyler, who, under the influence of the time vortex, spread the Bad Wolf meme throughout time and space. In an apparent bootstrap paradox, this was achieved by Rose lifting the physical words of the company sigil emblazoned on Satellite Five. (TV: The Parting of the Ways)
Behind the scenes Edit
- A real-life film production company called Bad Wolf was co-founded by Julie Gardner in 2015, making it one of the rare cases of an element of the fictional Doctor Who universe actually coming to exist in the real world. This was, of course, no coincidence but rather a knowing wink at the Series 1 story arc, Gardner having been the primary producer of Russell Davies-era Doctor Who.
