Re: Matt Smith confirmed for series 8

I'm happy to see that Matt will be back for one more season, though I hope they go with a new Doctor for series 9. 3-4 years seems like a good run for modern Who.

Excellent news. Hope we get at least one full series with Clara so she'll have had more episodes than Martha or Donna.

Also nice to see that Smith will beat Tennant in number of episodes.
Well that's just silly.

Re: Matt Smith confirmed for series 8

The BBC has announced the series eight commission. Yes, various people have said that they're working on it, that they know it's coming, etc., but here's the official word.

There are some notable things about the announcement.

One. It doesn't say who is starring in it.

Two. It doesn't say how many episodes.

Three. It doesn't say when it will start.

All we know officially is that it's coming and that Steven Moffat is working on it.

Im on a break for a couple of months while Im in Detroit making How To Catch A Monster. We come back and shoot the Christmas special over the summer, then we go on to the next series, which will either start filming at the end of this year or at the start of 2014.

Which means (unsurprisingly) it won't start until Autumn 2014, a 15-16 month gap. Remember when there only used to be a 9 month gap?

Well, they could start shooting in late 2013, and have a six or seven episode season available for Easter 2014. But yep, I'm assuming autumn 2014 at earliest, which is pretty SWEARWORD.

I also remember Moffat promising the split seasons would cut down the gap between seasons. And yet, we've already had one gap that lasted longer than Tennant's so-called gap year, and if this pans out that'll make two.

Re: Matt Smith confirmed for series 8

Tom Spilsbury is publicly questioning the BBC on how many episodes series 8 will have.

That looks very odd. Spilsbury isn't in a position where he can do that. As the editor of DWM he's the franchise's head cheerleader. Questioning the people who give him access and sign off on the work he publishes every month simply isn't done.

Very odd.

Was it you who mentioned that Panini might have lost their license? Perhaps he's not worried about brown-nosing anymore since he knows he's out of a job soon?

Even if they've kept the licence, Marcus Hearn is taking up a job at Panini this month... Could he be taking over DWM?

Whoever's in charge and where exactly that is, there're going to have a hard time selling yet another massive gap between series as a good thing.

It was me, yes.

I can't decide if Spilsbury has finally decided to commit journalism (which may not necessarily mean that Panini has lost the license) or he knows his tenure is coming to an end and doesn't care (which means that he's moving on, irrespective of whether or not Panini will continue to publish Doctor Who Magazine).

I'm trying not read motivations into Spilsbury's act of journalism.

Maybe even have him for series 9, although I must admit I doubt he will stay that long. I'm only just beginning to bond with Smith and get over that tenant is no longer the doctor, plus it feels like only five minutes since Smith got in. I'd also like to see Smith go beyond Moffat, I want to see what he'd be like under different management.

This. I have never agreed with anything you've posted so much as this one sentence. I hate to say that I think the writing is holding Smith back from being the most extraordinary Doctor ever.

I don't know what people's problem with 11 is - they made him purposefully dickish in Series 6, which annoys many, but for the last 14 episodes he's been a completely different cuddly uncle type.

I enjoyed Amy one the show, but I doubt I could put up with her in real life. If I had to put up with someone as narcissistic as Amy, I'd be pretty dickish, too.
