Ask TVSA: What happened to Dr Phil on Mzansi Magic?

One moment Dr Phil was inside your mind and the next he was gone.

Off Mzansi Magic with no explanation.

We received this query recently:

We've investigated and discovered that the show is between seasons on the channel and the contract for the next season's in the process of being organised. 

This from Mzansi Magic:

"Dr Phil is currently being contracted and season start has not yet been communicated."

We've just seen Season 19 so it'll be Season 20. We'll keep you posted once the return date's confirmed. 

In the meantime, here are some Dr Philisms to mull the time:

"You have got to decide, look, this is who I am; this is my best way to present myself, and I’m going to ride that horse to the finish line. Not everybody will like it, but that’s OK.” 

“You cannot be who and what you are unless you have a lifestyle, both internally and externally, that is designed to support that definition of self.”

“You need to listen to your body because your body is listening to you.” 

“When you allow a person’s words to upset you, you’re giving away your power.”

“Everyone faces the challenge of finding meaning to their suffering.”

If you have a TV question you'd like answered you can you send us an Ask by e-mailing us at or post on the Message Boards. We can't answer all questions so please don't have a fiasco if we don't.
