Next Season

The BBC has announced that series 6 will start as usual at easter, but will have a mid-season break, ending on a cliffhanger, returning in the autumn of 2011. This effectively puts Doctor Who back onto it's traditional autumn schedule, last seen in 1989.

Other announcements include the re-commissioning of 'Sherlock'. More details at http;//

I am very pleased that Andrew Cartmel (script editor 1987 to 1989) will be joining us at 'Time 4: Time and Space' on 9th October 2010.

The Big Bang

Hmm... I'm not sure about this one - it certainly didn't try and over-do things as previous end of season 'epics' have, but a lot is currently left unresolved. I think that, until we know just why the TARDIS exploded and the cracks in time opened it will be difficult to judge the overall season theme. Cast all very good as usual though!

Doctor Who v World Cup

Now tonight Doctor Who is scheduled directly against the England v USA World Cup match, and the football starts first. I'm afraid that the overnight ratings are not going to be good. Nobody is going to want to record the football and watch it later are they?
