Since the series came back in 2005 the one constant, for regular episodes, has been a prime time slot on Saturdays. While the time of year and the time of day have jumped about frequently each season has sat proudly in the Saturday schedules. But could this end next year?
A source close to production has told us that Series 11 will air on Sundays. When asked if this was in response to the drop in ratings no answer either way was forthcoming.
Will the Bells of St John now be ringing after Songs of Praise? Or will the BBC hold it’s nerve and keep Doctor Who as a flagship Saturday TV special?
We may have S11 for sure, but will when we get it turn out to be more of a surprise than the contents of the vault?
