Next “Doctor Who” Season Cut In Half?

Following in the wake of two seasons of 12-14 episodes each, The BBC’s “Doctor Who” may be undergoing a change for next year’s tenth season since its revival.

The Mirror reports that, in an effort to accommodate Peter Capaldi’s desire to work on other projects, next year’s season will have its episode order “halved” which means the season may only be comprised of six or seven episodes.

Adding weight to the rumor is that show runner Steven Moffat is producing a full new season of his “Sherlock” series next year which means he has less time to work on ‘Who’. Whatever the episode count is, a Christmas special is definitely being planned.

Capaldi is reportedly set to direct a movie based on his time in the punk band The Dreamboys, as well as two episodes of the HBO series “Veep”.
