Next Doctor Who TV series will be shown in two parts

Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) and Doctor Who (Matt Smith)

The new series of Doctor Who will be shown on TV in two separate chunks to allow show boss Steven Moffat to put a huge cliffhanger in the middle.

Moffat revealed that there'll be an "earth-shattering climax" in episode seven that will "change everything" for the Doctor, Amy and Rory.

He said: "Viewers will be treated to two premieres, two finales and more event episodes."

The first seven episodes will be shown in spring and the next six in autumn.

Steven Moffat added: "For the kids it will never be more than a few months to the next Doctor Who! Easter, Autumn, Christmas!!"
