TARDIS Tuesday: Time Lords' Time Slot Change

When Peter Davison took over the role of The Doctor in Doctor Who , not only did the series get a revamp on screen it was also given a new time-slot.

As early as May 9, 1981, BBC1 Controller Alan Hart revealed that when the series returned the following Winter it would "possibly not" be in its regular time slot of Saturday tea-times.

Speculation was also rife that the series would also go twice-weekly like Angels or Triangle.

On this occasion the Daily Mail weren't far off the mark, when Doctor Who returned the following January the series did go twice-weekly.. and dematerialised from the Saturday schedules for a good few years.
