With everyone still realing from the wait for Stephen Moffat’s final Doctor Who, the BBC One controller, Charlotte Moore, has offered the reason for the wait.

“I have decided to schedule Steven’s big finale series in spring 2017 to bring the nation together for what will be a huge event on the channel,” she said.

“2016 is spoilt with national moments including the Euros and Olympics and I want to hold something big back for 2017 – I promise it will be worth the wait!”

Em, while we appreciate the sentiment, it feels like a bit of a cop out. Would the Olympics and Euros really take away from the series?

We’re looking forward to the final season from Moffat but this feels a little like the way  the BBC always treats Doctor Who… poorly.

She added: “I would also like to take this opportunity to welcome Chris Chibnall, a wonderfully talented writer who I know will bring something very special to the hit series.”

Whatever the case, it’s all change for the Doctor in 2017…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
