The rumour's been around for some time now but no one seems to be taking it seriously. However a reliable source has informed the archive that many of the regular crew don't know if a new series will go ahead or not next year. Usually by this stage in the game the shooting schedule for the next season would have been set up and scripts written, but this year nothing seems to be happening.
The facts are that the show's overall ratings are down and the public have not taken to new Doctor, Matt Smith in the way they did to David Tennant. The BBC will make no comment on this at the moment but insiders have revealed that the corporation may be looking to a big screen Hollywood movie to continue the franchise.
