BBC has ordered 14 more episodes of the sitcom Doctor Who, starring Matt Smith, according to the Guardian. But when? Sam Hodges, BBC1’s Head of Communications said on Twitter: “Fourteen new episodes have been commissioned with Matt Smith as The Doctor”, the Escapist said.
It appears that Doctor Who has a great deal of fans, for making BBC include in the airing schedule 14 new episodes of the series. But if you, as a fan, are wondering when are they going to air, know that we are wondering the same thing. Only time will know. The only clear thing – and not so clear, as you will see – that the spokesman of the BBC network stated was that the new episodes are expected to air next year. “The new commission is a big commitment, not many other shows have such a commitment so far in advance. We do not know yet how many will air in 2012.” Not all 14 are programmed to air in 2012, and as you may see, nobody knows how many will they be or when are they going to be releasing the 14th episode.
However, this is still great news for the fans, who until now, have heard all kinds of rumors of the show being cancelled and expecting no more than four more special episodes. Now, we are talking about a whole new season. The spokesmen of BBC are expected to come with more news very soon.
Doctor Who is on its sixth series, with Matt Smith as the 11th incarnation of Time Lord. It is a revamped show that airs at 9/8c on BBC America. Half of the current season has already been aired and the remainder will air sometime in the fall.
Doctor Who is a SF sitcom depicting the adventures of a mysterious alien that travels in time, who is known to everyone else as The Doctor. With the help of his time machine, TARDIS, and his friends, he is able to explore the space and time, having different missions, all having the same purpose: to restore things on the right path.
