BBC Reaction to 11th Doctor Rumours

The BBC have finally issued a response to the days and days of claims and rumours that were set in motion by David Tennant’s announcement at the National Television Awards that he would no longer star in the show in 2010.

It seems that casting hasn’t yet been finalised, and of course as there’s a few months to spare that’s no surprise.

The BBC, then, has dismissed these reports, saying of each rumour – in particular the Colin Salmon casting that they are

"…not confirming this at all – a decision [about Tennant’s replacement] won’t be made until way into next year."

What is interesting i if the BBC Spoksperson is telling the truth, we could be looking at a very differend production schedule for the 2010 run. Christopher Eccleson’s casting as the Doctor was announced in the Spring of 2004; David Tennant’s a year later.

If a decision isn’t made until "way into next year" that suggests a timeframe beyond spring, possibly late Summer – could this indicate a winter timeslot for Doctor Who?
