"No more time-travel drama", authority says it disrespects history (In Communist China, TV watches you.)

"No more time-travel drama", authority says it disrespects history | ChinaHush:

In these time-travel based TV plays, usually the protagonist is from the modern time and for some reasons and via some means, travels through time and all the way back to the ancient China where he/she will constantly experience the 'culture shock' but gradually get used to it and eventually develop a romance in that era. Though obviously the Chinese audience is found of this genre of shows, the country’s authority -General Bureau of Radio, Film and Television, to be exact, is not happy about this trend and calls a halt to the making of this type of drama.
 I guess Doctor Who won't be on in China any time soon.
