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…
