Dept. of Doctor Who and the OMGWTFBBC


No full series for Doctor Who in 2012


Or what I like to call "contracting the cable custom." I can understand wanting to do Something Big for 2013, the 50th anniversary of the show. But this kind of stretching exercise is really frustrating for me as a fan. I suffered through months-long hiatuses of Battlestar Galactica, and I've learned to live with the strange beast known as mid-season finales (really? I do not think finale means what you cable marketing execs think it means) on some of my favorite cable series. I'm even cognizant that the Doctor Who decision might be at least partly generated by budget scarcities, and fully aware of the show's successful start after, what, 16 years, so a gap of less than a year shouldn't be that huge a burden to bear.

But still ... yeah ... OMGWTFBBQ

Hunkers down to wait for further news and clarifications, thinks "maybe I don't need to panic quite so much," settles on fanfic as coping mechanism
