Steven says Series 7 will be “moving a bit later”
Steven Moffat has revealed a few more details about what form Doctor Who will be taking in 2012.
14 new episodes starring Matt Smith were commissioned back in June, and it was later suggested that they’ll be aired across 2012 and 2013, meaning no full series next year. However, the showrunner has told The Daily Beast that the rumours of budget cuts are “absolute nonsense”. “We are airing in 2012,” he said. “The only thing that’s happening is that we’re moving a bit later.”
He continued: “There is lots of reasons for that that will become clear quite soon. It is certainly not a reduced episode count. Do you think the BBC would let that happen? With an average audience of 10 million? Doctor Who’s international profile is huge. It’s never been more successful. You’re not going to reduce it. The opposite is going to happen.”
Series 6 will continue this Saturday in Let’s Kill Hitler, airing at 7:10pm on BBC One.
