Bad news Back To The Future fans, co-writer Bob Gale has confirmed that there won’t ever be a fourth instalment to the franchise. But he has a very good reason for not adding to Marty and Doc’s adventures, and it’s one that every other franchise should probably adhere to.
It's a fact that we're uncomfortable admitting, but next summer will mark the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future. (Oh how time flies!)

The opening shot of Back To The Future really tells you absolutely everything you need to know about Doc Brown.
