Re: Officially no series 8 in 2013

I hope it's sold separately. I'll be pissed if they change the release format now that I have 7.1 on blu-ray.

This story seems to indicate DVD & blu-ray releases "some time in 2013".

And given that the only episode that's an almost total blank is the finale, I guess that's where they'll be.
A good guess every Doctor Who finale (proper finales, not mid-season finales like A Good Man Goes to War or The Angels Take Manhattan) has featured either Daleks or the Master.

I wouldn't say that either of Moffat's "featured" the Daleks. Sure, they were in them, but the episodes weren't about the Daleks like RTDs were (or like "Victory of the Daleks" and "Asylum of the Daleks").

Daleks were still featured in them, even if they weren't about the Daleks.

Re: Officially no series 8 in 2013

This may or may not have an effect on the production -- Caroline Skinner is out.

Faith Penhale, Head of Drama for BBC Wales, will be taking over Skinner's duties immediately.

If/when the next series is 8 episodes, couldn't they make them 60 minutes at least?

They'd have to include 15 minutes of material that could stand being cut out in those countries that show it with ads.

Or make them all two-parters, then chop them up & sell it as three-parters abroad.

(Not that I think that's a great solution creatively, but it would net BBC Worldwide more money.)

Per Tom Spilsbury, filming on the Anniversary special has been pushed back from March 18th to an indeterminate date in April.

Just stop watching butchered broadcasts. There are other ways. BBC hasn't cared before and quite rightly so.

I think we all could have predicted that one after yesterday's news!

Of course Matt Smith has a fixed date he has to get done by*, so that'll be a fun shoot, especially with the added complication of 3D cameras.



*Unless he ends up having to drop out of the film.

Then other TV broadcasters would stop buying them, if no one watched them legally, and then BBC would lose a revenue stream... they care about that.

Re: Officially no series 8 in 2013

Well, if you read the below story and remember that Series 8 is confirmed, Moffat's confirmed he'll still be in charge and JLC has said she'll be back too, Matt Smith's reluctance to confirm any appearance beyond Christmas is pretty telling.

Jason Statham for 12. You know it makes sense and if you disagree he'll nut ya.

Statham is fun but I prefer it when The Doctor is played by a weirder, character actor than by a traditional leading man.
