'Doctor Who' Series 6 Will Have 13 Episodes


Doctor Who's fifth season has been a bit of a quandry for some fans, but not for me. While some found the season to be uneven and otherwise lesser in quality, I found it to be a well-written, well-acted series, for the most part - that is, if you axed "Victory of the Daleks," one of the worst episodes the show has had since 2005.


In any case, Doctor Who will be returning in 2011 along with showrunner Steven Moffat and stars Matt Smith and Karen Gillan (and hopefully Arthur Darvill) for thirteen episodes, confirmed a spokesman for the BBC. Previous series of the show have lasted thirteen episodes as well, meaning that season six is maintaining the status quo. Meanwhile, Moffat has confirmed that he'll be writing five episodes of the sixth series, as well as this year's Christmas special.

I agree "Victory of the Daleks" was a terrible episode but it just paved the way for some terrible writing. For instance the final episode, the doctor crosses his own timeline, something he has constantly said he cannot do also making physical contact with his other self which he said he must never do. If the doctor was erased from history how could Amy have still had the raggedy doctor as her imaginary playmate to remember in the first place, a basic paradox. The inconsistancies are too numerous to list but suffice to say the writers need to pay more attention to what has come before and less time trying to make the show feel new, a task severely hampered by the fact that the doctor is still being written as if he were David Tennant.
