Doctor Who thing of the day: after Christmas, no new episodes till October

So saith Steven Moffat:

The truth behind the delay next year is: why are we killing ourselves and risking compromising the show, in order to go out in the middle of summer? I’m sick of it. I’m sick of standing in the blazing sunshine, with a barebecue fork in my hand, knowing that Doctor Who is coming on any minute.

Six o’clock on a sunny Saturday is the middle of the afternoon, whereas six o’clock on a winter or autumn Saturday is dark and exciting.

Well, that’s certainly true, and Doctor Who doesn’t really sit well with a warm sunny summer afternoon. So why not give us some new Doctor Who in February, huh? Huh? Might be nice to get all gloomy and dark with that on a cold winter evening.

But no one asks me about these things.
