The BBC’s long-running sci-fi series, Doctor Who is on the move – from Saturday to Sunday.

The show will kick-start it’s new season from Sunday October 7th, moving from it’s traditional Saturday night slot to a Sunday screening. No time slot has been announced just yet.

So, why the move?

Why not?

I’m pretty sure tomorrow the newspapers will be running stories that the show is on it’s last legs/introducing a female Doctor is killing the series/cancellation is on the cards* etc (*please delete as applicable), but I don’t believe this at all. Times change, people don’t watch TV in the same way as they did when the show re-launched back in 2005, this move isn’t a big deal.

So, if it’s not a big deal, then why am I posting about the change? It’s simple really, I watch Doctor Who (mostly on catch-up, rarely live) so I’m making people aware of the change from Saturday to Sunday for those that do watch it when it airs.

And now you know – and knowing is half the battle.
