Next series of Doctor Who to be split

Next series of Doctor Who to be split transmission

From the BBC Press office…

The BBC and Steven Moffat have announced today that the transmission of the next series of Doctor Who, in 2011, will be split into two blocks, transmitting in spring and autumn.

The split transmission is the result of a request from Steven Moffat to write a new Doctor Who story arc which involves a big plot twist in the middle of the series. By splitting the series Moffat plans to give viewers one of the most exciting Doctor Who cliffhangers and plot twists ever, leaving them waiting, on the edge of their seats, until the autumn to find out what happens.

Steven Moffat said: “The split series is hugely exciting because viewers will be treated to two premieres, two finales and more event episodes. For the kids it will never be more than a few months to the next Doctor Who! Easter, Autumn, Christmas!!”

    Rory’s died so many times, and it’s just got boring. I just sit there thinking: “Just get up Rory, you’re not dead!”, so if Rory died, then it would be so, so boring. Amy might die, but that would be too confusing and catastrophic. River can’t die, because that will cause fans heads to explode, since she actually died in Forest of the Dead. The Doctor was the one who died, but we all hope that will be averted. Smith won’t live forever, but Doctor Who will!

    Okay, I must remember not to disrespect other people’s opinions.

    It is the crack in Amy’s wall.

    Why is it a good idea? 😕 We have to be clinged on this “It’s me. I’m Melody. I’m your daughter” thing. From all we know, she could say “No, not really!” in the next scene! That’s the thing about Steven Moffat, he always comes up with the unexpected, mostly the not necessary unexpected.

    I think it’s a stupid idea to split the series.
