Re: Doctor Who Finds "New" Executive Producer

Sci-Fi Bulletin has a piece up today on post-Christmas filming; the latest DWM (out tomorrow) writes that "Doctor Who is due to resume later in the year for the 2013 Christmas Special, and possibly further episodes."

I think it's nothing more than poor wording on DWM's part. We know there will be a series 8 at some point (why search for someone to fill the producer's chair for 20 months otherwise?), but as the BBC hasn't officially announced the series yet, DWM can't say definitively that there will be a series 8.

Re: Doctor Who Finds "New" Executive Producer

So, if I understand things, the Christmas special won;t begin production until September (in order to accomodate Smith's movie filmed in the US). If everything runs smoothly, season 8 could potentially begin production shortly thereafter. Assuming it does, would this allow for a spring 2014 airdate?

Maybe for a half-season. Probably not for a full season (the RTD years needed to start filming around July for that to happen, IIRC).

So we can intrepret for this that we're either sticking with half-seasons or the season will start later in 2014.

That seems like a fair conclusion to me. (If I were going to bet, it'd be on the half-seasons.)

Bear in mind that there's currently a vacancy for BBC1 Controller, so a decision on whether to stick with half seasons, or hold back for a full one in September 2014, might well be put on hold for the month or two it'll take to appoint the new one. After all, he/she'll be in charge whenever it runs.
