Series 11 rumors

Post by Admin-Emperor Dalek on Wed 7 Feb 2018 - 9:22

Via Doctor Who TV:


More big changes for Doctor Who, if recent press rumours are to be believed!
This year’s Series 11 will air in a Sunday slot rather than the traditional Saturday evenings, according to the Mirror.
Their online report states:
Doctor Who could be time travelling for real this year – from Saturday nights to Sundays.
The show launched on a Saturday teatime in 1963 and while other slots have been tried over the decades it has always returned to its ­original position.
But in recent years the BBC series has struggled in the autumn ratings because Strictly Come Dancing forces it later into the evening, meaning the youngest fans lose out.
Viewing figures of 7.3million in 2014 dropped to 5.5million last year.
The next series, in which Jodie Whittaker makes her debut as the Time Lord, is also the first for new show runner Chris Chibnall and insiders say pushing the show back 24 hours may prove attractive.
Our on-set spy reveals: “On Saturdays everything has to fit around Strictly. Moving Doctor Who to a Sunday could make perfect sense. It is a serious option.”
The source adds: “Chris is taking Doctor Who apart to give it a revamp. The only things viewers will immediately recognise are the sonic screwdriver, the TARDIS and the theme tune.”

I'd actually be really happy with this, Saturday nights have unfortunately gone back to the way they used to be before the Who relaunch, with three reality shows in a row before the news and not much else, and putting Who on a Sunday, perhaps in the 8 or 9 drama slot, would really help it become more visible, which is what it really needs to be right now.

8 or 9 slot? Kids would be in bed then. If they move it to Sunday more like 5pm I'd guess.

This just boosts my theory that the target audience is being redirected. If they still wanted younger viewers to watch, it wouldn't be on a Sunday night, kids will obviously be in bed due to the week starting the following day.

I was at first going to kick off, but I'm actually alright with this. If anything I'm more blown away by the fact that I'll be in college by this point.

Only a rumour and I can't see them moving it to a late slot. Remember Capaldi and Moffat were not happy about series 9 being on later.

But with Series 9, that was pushed back by Strictly, which took the Saturday primetime slot, so understandable they were unhappy with the late slot because Strictly took all their viewers. There isn't really a covetable primetime slot on a Sunday, the closest is Songs of Praise or Countryfile in the daytime, or the 8 or 9 drama slot, which would work better for Who on a Sunday. Also, I can't stress enough how little live viewing figures matter right now.

Actually you're right. As nice as it would be to have it later, It can't be. I mean there's no reason for it to go past the watershed, which I think is either at 9 or 10.
