With Steven Moffat committed to producing both “Doctor Who” and “Sherlock” for The BBC, it has led to complications in the past with the scheduling of new episodes on both shows.
A new report from British satirical magazine Private Eye, via Bleeding Cool, talks about the goings-on behind the scenes at the BBC and indicates that the network’s staff have been informed not to expect a full tenth season of the show in 2016.
Moffat is reportedly under pressure from the corporation to stand down from “Doctor Who” and commit his time to “Sherlock” rather than managing both at the same time. The report says that though there’s no ‘full’ series planned, there may be specials or a shortened season.
The show’s full twelve-episode ninth season kicks off mid-September.
