Apparently, BBC1 Controller Danny Cohen announced that DOCTOR WHO will return in “a curtailed form”.
At present, it appears that the 13 episodes and a Christmas special will be produced, but that the premeire will delayed until Fall, rather than Spring 2012, and only six or seven episodes will air.
Other shows of the 14-episode commitment will be shown in 2013, as part of the show’s 50th Aniversary.
DOCTOR WHO Writer/Producer Steven Moffat is reported to have said via Twitter: “Dr Who: misquotes and misunderstandings. But I’m not being bounced into announcing the cool stuff before we’re ready. Hush, and patience.”
