How Season Eight Of Doctor Who Will Play Out Over Two Years

Posted by November 25, 2013 Comment


This is how we are hearing Doctor Who Series Eight will break down. Again, nothing official, nothing released, don’t regard this as gospel. Or we’ll send Malcom Tucker round.

Fourteen episodes, split across two years.

Seven episodes, including a Christmas Special in 2014, including that two parter Dalek story.  First episode on April 19th. And similarly, seven episodes, including a Christmas Special in 2015.

And that is how long Peter Capaldi is locked down to play the character. Doesn’t mean he won’t extend it, of course.

You may start your complaining n…

…wait for it…!

Until then, what we could have had.
