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.
If Ronald Reagan hadn't cut Mental Health funding to the bone, most of today's GOP & Tea Party candidates wouldn't be walking around loose.
