They have a fine line to tread ... it's gotta be scary to an extent, but it also has to be suitable for early Saturday evening viewing. I think they do it pretty well.

I agree with that BI.

Who seems to have the balance just right at the moment - or at least that is how I feel its going anyway.

Some 'bad' news for Doctor Who 2012 season...

Quote :

Doctor Who: BBC1 will not screen a full series in 2012

Channel controller confirms series will be split between next year and 2013 due to Steven Moffat's writing commitments

BBC1 will not screen a full series of Doctor Who in 2012 because of showrunner Steven Moffat's writing commitments with Sherlock, channel controller Danny Cohen has confirmed.

The BBC confirmed earlier in June that 14 new Doctor Who episodes have been commissioned – a 13-part series plus a Christmas special, although the scheduling plan remained unclear.

However, not all the commissioned episodes will be broadcast in 2012, with the next series split between next year and 2013, when Doctor Who will celebrate its 50th birthday.

"He [Moffat] needs enough time to get that [Sherlock] done and then start work on the next series of Doctor Who," Cohen told the 2011 Church and Media conference on Tuesday, according to a BBC News report.

"There will be some episodes, but there won't be a full series, so we won't have a 13-part run [in 2012]," he added.

Moffat is a brilliant writer...but I'm pissed that the BBC doesn't have a contingency plan in case Moffat isn't available...surely there are other writers?

Thing is, Dr Who DOES have other writers ... Moffat writes about half the episodes in a series. It must be his bigger role as 'showrunner' that's the difficulty.

Richard E. Grant and Hugh Grant would make pretty good Doctors, I reckon.

Well, I'd like to see it anyway ;)

They shouldn't have cut that scene. It is classic.

Richard E. Grant's done it, sort of -

Not sure about Hugh Grant ... aren't the Doctor's enemies meant to find the prospect of facing him just a little intimidating?

In saying that I do like Hugh Grant a lot but I don't think he'll ever become the Doctor and I can't see him in the role.

'Oh gosh ... time travel, you say? Sounds terribly complicated. And what did you call those things ... Daleks, was it? Oh no, they sound very threatening and unpleasant indeed ... no thank you'.

And so on laugh .

He's so (happily, it would seem) typecast as Mr RomCom I find it very difficult to see him playing any other type of role now.

To be honest, I think we kinda dodged a bullet in the 90s when he wasn't cast as Bond.

Ah yes - classic misdirection, to make your enemies underestimate you ;)

I still think he should be PM as well. Okay, I have a long - a very long - list of who I'd rather be PM than the current Hooray Henry, but Hugh Grant is very near the top of it!

I would have picketed the theatres if that had happened and willingly gone to jail for civil disobedience. The horror.

Decided to watch Torchwood.

Am enjoying it. Still prefer Who but Torchwood isn't bad at all. Only up to the fourth episode though.
