After initial reports, Life, Doctor Who & Combom is reporting that there will be no full series of Doctor Who in 2012, they are also saying that caution is key. After their many updates, they still reserved judgement. But now it’s been confirmed, and many Whovians won’t be happy.
The reputable journalist Lizo Mzimba has reported the following:
There will not be a full series of Dr Who in 2012! BBC confirms that BBC One Controller said this earlier today.
Note the wording. There will not be “a full series”, but this doesn’t rule out a year of specials à la Russell T Davies in 2009.
Now, during the event at which Danny Cohen made these remarks, he seemed to imply that Moffat wanted to put more emphasis on Sherlock, his fabulous co-production with Mark Gatiss. Lizo Mzimba says otherwise, because, as it turns out, Sherlock isn’t being put first.
