It surprises me this hasn't sent shockwaves through the online fandom. I'd have assumed people would be wary of any
indication the series is winding down production somewhat. UK fans complained bitterly when the original show was cut down from 26 episodes per annum to 14 in the late 1980s, and we all know that was because it was on its last legs. Is there anybody out there in internet-land decrying this as the first step towards the (second) cancellation of Doctor Who?
