Steven Moffat on the Second Part of the Doctor Who 2011 Series

Doctor Who returns on Saturday, 27 August 2011 both on the BBC in the UK and BBC America in the USA. Executive Producer and Lead Writer for the series, Steven Moffat had the following to say about the resumption of the 2011 series in the latest from the BBC Press Office.

Doctor Who, Series Split.

Steven Moffat

Steven Moffat announced at the Edinburgh International Television Festival that the next season of Doctor Who will be split. But not like we think of spilt, according to Steven, "The wrong expression would be to say we are splitting it in two. We are making it two separate series." Seven episodes are to be shown up to Easter and the remaining six episodes are to be shown in the autumn.

It Was 25 Years Ago Today, The Gallifreyan Embassy Began…

It was a quarter of century ago today, as hard as it is for me believe, is when the Gallifreyan Embassy began. Unbeknownst at the time, it was the day after the Discovery Channel was launched. It was also the day after the launch of the space shuttle Discovery (STS-51-G) which marked the first Arab and Muslim in space (payload specialist Sultan bin Salman bin Adulaziz Al Saud). Yes, it was 1985. Ronald Reagan was in the White House, Commodore launches the Amiga personal computer while NeXT is founded by Steve Jobs after leaving Apple Computer.

Just two weeks before we went Back to the Future in the theaters, the Gallifreyan Embassy of Long Island officially began.

Steven Moffat on the Return of the Weeping Angels

Executive Producer and Lead Writer for Doctor Who, Steven Moffat writes in the BBC TV Blog about The Return of the Weeping Angels (The Time of Angels). He says, "Good Doctor Who monsters have to come back - it's a rule. But my feeling is that you always have to bring back a monster and do something different with it."

New Producer for Sarah Jane Adventures Series 4?

Sarah Jane AdventuresThe BBC is seeking a new producer to head up series 4 of The Sarah Jane Adventures according to an article today on ATV Network. It states that shooting is due to start in March and that the BBC will produce 12 episodes starring Elisabeth Sladen as Sarah Jane Smith.

This comes on the heels of yesterday's report in The Hollywood Reporter that The Sarah Jane Adventures creator and producer, Russell T Davies is spearheading a US version of Torchwood with Fox. We can assume the reason the BBC is seeking a new producer for CBBC spin-off of Doctor Who is due to the fact that Russell T Davies is in the US and if reports are correct, may be busy with the US Torchwood project.

This One Goes to Eleven. On Tap for and Shedding Light on Some Changes for Doctor Who.

Now that the end time has come for David Tennant as the Doctor, or rather, The End of Time, there is a new Doctor in the house, or rather TARDIS… Welcome, Matt Smith.

Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor

It is not only a change of Doctors, but with Steven Moffat taking the helm of the series as the new executive producer and lead writer, it is a whole new era for Doctor Who. Expect changes across the board to reflect it. 

We have already seen the new logo(s) for the series, the new Doctor debuted in the most recent special, The End of Time, Part 2. Doctor Who Monthly magazine is sporting an updated look, and we expect the same with the BBC Doctor Who website soon as well.
