Den of Geek have an article regarding Season 7. Taking quotes from The Moff gleaned from the upcoming "Brilliant Book of Doctor Who - 2012" we get an insight into why the show will be delayed next year together with a hint or two about what to expect for the anniversary in 2013:
“The truth behind the delay next year is: why are we killing ourselves and risking compromising the show, in order to go out in the middle of summer? I’m sick of it. I’m sick of standing in the blazing sunshine, with a barebecue fork in my hand, knowing that Doctor Who is coming on any minute. Six o’clock on a sunny Saturday is the middle of the afternoon, whereas six o’clock on a winter or autumn Saturday is dark and exciting”
Regarding the 50th Anniversary:
“Epic, huge, massive, indulgent... all your treats at once. I guarantee you it’s going to be the best year ever to be a Doctor Who fan. We’re going to be in production for longer than ever, just to do everything that we intend to do”.
Interesting. It totally makes sense regarding Season 7. "Doctor Who" is always best on winter evenings - it always has been. It defintely felt odd watching it in "daylight" so to speak. As for an "indulgent" anniversary? Excellent. If Matt is still the Doctor then I'll be a happy bunny anyway.
The "Brilliant Book of Doctor Who - 2012" is released on 13 October 2011 and is available from Forbidden Planet
