Doctor WhoSteven Moffat has confirmed changes for the next series of Doctor Who which means Mark Gatiss’ episode has been pushed back to the Autumn half of the new season. As already announced the sixth series of Doctor Who (sixth since it was revived in 2005) will be spilt in two; half will air in the Spring and half will air in the Autumn. However, show-runner Steven Moffat has announced via the Doctor Who Magazine changes to the previously announced episode line-up for the new series.

 

The Mark Gattis penned episode has been pushed back to the Autumn half of the season. In its place, being brought forward, is an episode penned by Steve Thompson. The writer is new to the world of Doctor Who but penned an episode of Sherlock; Mark Gattiss and Steven Moffat’s modern day take on the tales of Sherlock Holmes. The shift in the episode line-up means Thompson’s episode will be third with Neil Gaiman’s story being pushed to fourth. Moffat explained the decision to change the line-up of episodes as being to do with the look of the series and because of production worries that there was ‘not enough outside’ in the Spring half of the season.
