Steven Moffat says no 2 parters in series 7Source: Doctor Who TV;

More changes are afoot for the next series of Doctor Who. Steven Moffat has said it is unlikely that there will be any two-part stories in Series 7.

”The big thing is, nothing in the next run is starting out as a two-parter,” he confirms in the latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine. “At this stage, everything is a single episode, and the only reason anything will become a two-parter is if we think it needs to be; not so much that the story is too long for 45 minutes, because nothing is too long for 45 minutes, but if it feels as though there are two distinct stages to the story… Continue reading

If the blurb released by the studio exactly a year to the day before the premiere doesn’t raise your anticipation for The Hobbit at least a little, we don’t know what will. Oh yeah, we do. Maybe a boatload of pics would do the trick … but there are none to be found today. (Sorry!) Continue reading
