BBC1 Controller Danny Cohen confirmed yesterday that Doctor Who will not be returning for a full series until 2013.
There have been weeks of speculation over the scheduling for the series in 2012. The BBC confirmed last week that 14 episodes of Doctor Who had been commissioned but that the schedule was yet to be announced. All that is known is that one of the 14 episodes will be the 2012 Christmas Special.
It’s been reported that this is to free up a larger budget for the show’s 50th anniversary in 2013.
