Re: 12th Doctor Announcement Coming In October?

From this viewer's read, it sounds like he really just doesn't have anything to say about the anniversary. That could be a sign that there isn't anything to say, or they're just being very very secretive for some reason.

Wow. That's pretty amazing

So he's anxious about getting the 50th wrong? Not about getting it right? He's anxious that he's getting it wrong?

I have to see that again.

Considering that the page says "A Doctor & iconic monster t-shirt EVERY MONTH in 2013," and there are no iconic monsters in silhouette between January and November, then it stands to reason that December is probably a Dalek.
especially with the Daleks 50th being in December

If there's a 12th Doctor immediately post-anniversary, we'll know it by the end of April, not October

Not really related to this but it's interesting that the big Dimensions convention in Newcastle which was meant to take place on the anniversary weekend has been moved forward to October - apparently for reasons that will become apparent over the next few weeks.

So are the BBC planning some big live events for that weekend.

He looks very tired. I wonder if he should end the current showrunner formula and maybe give his plans for series eight to Gatiss or something. His mission of raising the quality of the show seems to be about done. And he already did the improvised series arc thing twice. His work here seems to be done.

Re: 12th Doctor Announcement Coming In October?

He's on a night out, of course he looks tired

I'm not sure what Allyn means about yanking the interviewers chain? Is it aroud the fact that he still seems to be suggesting Who will take over the telly in November? If so, it can do that without having a whole stream of episodes. I imagine we may get classic repeats on BBC3, and I imagine a whole host of Who alumni will be appearing on every panel show/chat show going! Plus whether it's Jena or someone else (still betting on Davison myself) there's bound to be a Who presense on Strictly this year.

As for a 12th Doctor, I think Lonemagpie is right, if there is going to be one we'll know way before the autumn

No, I meant Moffat's inability to answer the questions straight and forthrightly.

I realize that Moffat didn't want to say anything about the anniversary plans, but at the same time he didn't have to be a joker about it.

Ah I sI thought he'd said something ridiculous like "We're making a three hour long film" or something!

That was my impression as well. A bone-tired, mentally exhausted state. I think he was trying to be humorous but just too exhausted to actually be funny. Can't blame him, he sounds busy!

Also, I thought the answer about Bond was telling. He didn't want to be involved so he could still enjoy it, which sort of implies he's not enjoying his current work as much. Probably because it's too much.

It's probably been stated, but does anyone known when filming for the anniversary special will start?

I can think about now is what a Moffat scripted Bond film would be like!

I've said before, I've heard that there's supposed to be a live episode on the 23rd...

Told you so!

http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118065796/

And yes, technically this doesn't mean his going but it doesn't look good does it now?

And on a related note, now that Being Human's been cancelled Toby Whithouse's going to be looking for a new job...

Re: 12th Doctor Announcement Coming In October?

Depends on if they plan to film any more Who (beyond the Special(s)) this year. This could just be Smith filling a gap in his schedule and testing the Hollywood waters.
