DOCTOR WHO Renewed for Series 7

Cool news: The BBC has renewed Doctor Who for a 14-episode seventh series, with “a good chunk” of the episodes airing 2012. It’s not yet known how many will air next year.

As mentioned by The Guardian, “the renewal follows a report in Private Eye that producers BBC Wales were proposing not to make a full series of the hit show in 2012 and instead air four specials.”

I don’t mind the current ‘split season’, as it serves the narrative while reducing the long wait for new episodes. But I’d very much like to watch all of Series 7 in the same calendar year.

    Four specials basically means no story arc, just 3 one-offs and a Christmas Special. Not really acceptable, IMO. Surely the actors can free up enough time for 14 eppies per annum.

    I can’t see dragging a season over 2 calendar years unless it didn’t debut until Fall 2012. Nevertheless, this is good news and hopefully Pond will come along.

    They need increase the budget, it would have been awesome if they made a 22 episode seasons :)
