Re: 12th Doctor Announcement Coming In October?

As said before, he and Caroline Skinner aren't senior enough to make these decisions. They can go to the next layer up the power structure and say "Sorry, we're not going to be ready in time, you'll have to postpone filming," and win the argument, but that'd be a bad black mark on their record.
Now that might not matter so much for him, assuming he can always go back and write Tintin 3, and so on, but for Caro Skinner it'd be career suicide (at least if she's planning on staying inside the BBC). It'd be the very last thing she'd do.
