More detail coming out about our previous story about Doctor Who not coming out until the fall. Actually the series are going to be shortened to seven episodes each and they will be having them in the spring and the fall, so that means 2011 will see series six and seven of the new series of Doctor Who. I actually think I like this since it will give us the Doctor throughout the year (and more for the podcasters out there to talk about year round). Thoughts? Read the Story Here
The rumors of Doctor Who moving to a fall schedule wouldn’t be so bad (especially with the 50th anniversary coming up in fall 2013), but it just means then if they do the change that we wouldn’t see a new episode of Who until for at least another nine months after the Christmas Special this year. Thoughts?
