Well, now we know that there won’t be a full series of Doctor Who in 2012. That’s from BBC1 Controller Danny Cohen, who told the 2011 Church and Media Conference that the show will have episodes aired in 2012 but not a full series, and will have a “special run” for the 2013 50th anniversary year. We heard before that 14 episodes have already been ordered and that Matt Smith will be in them, but exactly when we’ll get the 14 is now up in the air. Again, he didn’t say there would be NO episodes in 2012, but he didn’t say how many we’ll get then and how many will be delayed until 2013.
So, when next year rolls around, you’ll have to be patient.
At least try.
And here’s an update: Steven Moffat has tweeted this:
“Dr Who: misquotes and misunderstandings. But I’m not being bounced into announcing the cool stuff before we’re ready. Hush, and patience.”
See? Patience. You can be patient. All will be well.
