Doctor Who executive producer Steven Moffat will write five episodes for the next series of the show.
Moffat said, “I’m doing the  Christmas special plus five, so it’s the same. Six again.”
“I’m basically following what Russell (T. Davies) did,” he confirmed. “Having worked out the sums and worked out how he does it, I thought that’s a perfect way of doing it.”
Between Doctor Who and his new show Sherlock, he hasn’t been enjoying much of a work life balance.
“The last year has been extraordinary,” he claimed. “I’ve had about four days off, and that includes Christmas day. I work every weekend, I get up early in the morning, I go to bed late at night. There is no way of balancing it.”
The next series, starring Matt Smith as The Doctor, is scheduled for broadcast in 2011.
