Personally I like the idea of having one massive story arc then a cliffhanger which will split the series (one half airing in spring then the second half in autumn). It shows that rather than following the previous format of the show laid down by Russell T Davies Moffat, with a successful first outing under is belt, is now willing to take a risk or two. Fingers crossed the gamble pays off for him and the production team.

I’ll be interested to find out what the rest of the who fans will think of this news.

The BBC and Steven Moffat have announced today that the transmission of the next series of Doctor Who, in 2011, will be split into two blocks, transmitting in spring and autumn.

The split transmission is the result of a request from Steven Moffat to write a new Doctor Who story arc which involves a big plot twist in the middle of the series. By splitting the series Moffat plans to give viewers one of the most exciting Doctor Who cliffhangers and plot twists ever, leaving them waiting, on the edge of their seats, until the autumn to find out what happens.

Steven Moffat said: “The split series is hugely exciting because viewers will be treated to two premieres, two finales and more event episodes. For the kids it will never be more than a few months to the next Doctor Who! Easter, Autumn, Christmas!!”
