The World Doesn't End Because the Doctor Dances

Season 7 of Doctor Who Delayed to Fall 2012


James and the Doctor had to take a moment to compose themselves after the confirmed news that the seventh season of Doctor Who will be delayed until fall 2012.

You have to understand… the Doctor isn’t angry. He’s just disappointed. (He also wants you to remember, when all this is over, that he offered you a choice.)

According to DoctorWhoTV:

It seems likely that only half of Series 7 will be shown in Autumn 2012, with the remainder coming early 2013. This means the Christmas 2012 episode would air in the middle of a series rather than the end.

It would also mean that 2013 would see an eighth series airing in time for the 50th anniversary.

That means we’d likely be seeing an Easter Special in 2012, then a half season in the Fall, a 2012 Christmas special, the next half of season 7, and then season 8 in fall 2013.

Wait… if we had a TARDIS we could go to fall 2012 and watch Doctor Who! We just have to wait until fall 2012 for the TARDIS to come back. Then we can go to fall 2012 and watch Doctor Who.

    If only you had a cardboard David Tennant to keep you company.

    You know it.
    (I’m saving the entire newest season to watch in small increments over the next year, moving to the newest season of Torchwood, and then probably warding off withdrawal symptoms with copious dosages of fanfiction)

    I’ll just get my fiance to cosplay as him. David’s his favorite Doctor, so it’s win-win.

    The Olympics. Lots of BBC 2012 scheduling changes are due to the Olympics. Which is the only thing keeping me from the lack-of-DW sadness. Focus on the Olympics!

    I really hope there are more posts tagged as “Cardboard David Tennant” in the future because those could only be great.

    I thought that this was an old rumor denied by Moffat. Not gonna believe it until I see the official press release…

  • damien warfield

    Well, I don’t think that we will have to wait for 2013. All of those people who watch Doctor Who and believe in 2012 will raid the BBC studio and release the Doctor Who episodes before they die of alcohol poisoning on Dec. 20, 2012 because they think that the world will end anyways.

    Keep your eye on him. Don’t look away for even a second. Don’t even blink! :D 

    Ahhh I wish I had a cardboard David Tennant. Then everyone would have to stop making fun of me for having no friends. :P

  • kiiwiipie

    Ha! I wish that I could like this a thousand times!! It’s so true! They wouldn’t risk it, not letting all the episodes out before the end of the world. Bad PR. :)
