(Video Update) Doctor Who To Split Into Two Half-Series In 2011

At the Edinburgh TV Festival today, Steven Moffat announced that the transmission of the next series of Doctor Who, in 2011, will be split into two blocks, one transmitting in the spring and the other in autumn. Moffat said

What this show needs is a big event in the middle. We do 13 episodes, which is two series worth, so this year we’re going to make it two series. It will come back for seven episodes at Easter, build to an Earth-shattering climax” and that this is “honestly, a gamechanging event for Amy, The Doctor and Rory”

In a subsequent BBC press release timed to coicide with the panel, Moffat is quotes as saying;

The split series is hugely exciting because viewers will be treated to two premieres, two finales and more event episodes. For the kids it will never be more than a few months to the next Doctor Who! Easter, Autumn, Christmas!!

And the upcoming teaser for the Doctor Who Christmas Special sees Amy saying “time can be re-written” and the Doctor saying he’s “the ghost of Christmas past”.

UPDATE: With video:
