The Motley Fool is a financial services company founded in 1993 and providing investment services to millions. What business have they appearing on the Starburst website? Prithee fool, stay and take heed.
As an investment tip, the Motley Fool has just drawn attention to an investment worth Sci Fi franchise bigger than both Star Wars and Star Trek. This franchise is receiving a lot of attention in 2013 and has a fanatic (and relatively cash rich) fan base. The franchise is recommended for investment but there is just one problem – the franchise is owned by the BBC and is, of course, Doctor Who!
The Motley Fool does go on to suggest ways in which investors can profit indirectly from the shows 50th anniversary then moves on to present a feature on the possible future of television.
Why bring this to the attention of Starburst readers? Well I think this is a measure of how far science-fiction has come as a genre since the days of pulp fiction and the pre-Star Wars era. When Doctor Who is discussed at the tables of high finance you know the show has arrived.
And if you want some investment advice from Starburst – invest in a few re-issued Doctor Who DVDs or Blu-rays and sit yourself down and get ready for November 23rd!
