OK. If it is nonsense, then some heads ought to roll at BBC publicity, as if they've done a great job of convincing us all that that's all we're getting!
Was anything really officially announced? I thought all our info was just coming off of a placard at a toy fair or something.
A placard from BBC Worldwide. If they don't know what's going on, there are bigger problems at hand in the BBC...
Well, a placard from BBC Worldwide informing toy dealers of air-dates that they felt were important to toy dealers, and not informing them of a possible whole slew of (possible) additional air-dates that may have been omitted from that placard because the PR folks at BBC Worldwide didn't feel they were at all pertinent to toy release schedules.

Not revealing a lot on unnecessary information to toy manufacturers and retailers in NOT a sign of "bigger problems at hand in the BBC", or that "they don't know what's going on", but a sign that everything is exactly as it has ever been at the Beeb, as it sounds pretty much like their SOP, particularly where DW is concerned.
