“The split series is hugely exciting because viewers will be treated to two premieres, two finales and more event episodes. For the kids it will never be more than a few months to the next Doctor Who! Easter, Autumn, Christmas!!”
The main point of this is to highlight his mention of a Christmas Special. As I mentioned in an earlier post, the later transmission could have meant that we no longer got a special, but it seems that plans are still afoot.
Moff is usually quite coy about releasing any information before he absolutely has to, so for him to mention a Christmas Special next year could possibly mean it has already been commissioned, which of course would be great news if true.
