Doctor Who S6 To Be Aired In Two Halves
Following an announcement at the Edinburgh International Television Festival by benevolent Who overlord Steven Moffat, the BBC have issued a press release confirming that season 6 of Doctor Who will be split into two parts, with the first part to air in Spring and the second to air in Autumn.
This is at the request of Moffat himself, who states that this move will allow him to craft a story arc that allows for more “event stories” and a potentially-massive mid-season cliffhanger.
Doctor Who producer promises ‘game-changing cliffhanger’
Steven Moffat said:
“Looking at the next series I thought what this show needs is a big event in the middle.
“I kept referring to a mid-season finale. So we are going to make it two series—seven episodes at Easter building to an earth-shattering climax, a cliffhanger we could never normally do because it would be too long before it came back. An enormous game-changing cliffhanger that will change everything.
“The wrong expression would be to say we are splitting it in two. We are making it two separate series.”

Greg Grunberg thinks ‘there has to be’ a Heroes movie coming
During an interview with the New York Post while promoting his Lifetime Original Movie Bond of Silence—in which he also plays a cop—Grunberg predicted that creator Tim Kring would return to the Heroes universe:
No, I think there has to be [a movie]. But I also predicted they wouldn’t just out and out cancel it, so what do I know [laughs]. It makes business sense to do something—there’s a huge fanbase that wants some sort of conclusion and I think the actors want to do it. It’s not about making a fortune to come back—we all appreciate the fans so much, I think if the call went out, we’d all be on board.
What do you think of a Heroes movie? IMO it’s beating a dead horse.
Are you glad you’ll be getting about 2 season from Doctor Who?
