The next series of Doctor Who will air in two parts, it has been announced.
Speaking at the Edinburgh TV Festival this morning, showrunner Steven Moffat confirmed that the sixth run will start in Spring 2011 and return in the Autumn.
A statement from the BBC explained: "The split transmission is the result of a request from Steven Moffat to write a new Doctor Who story arc which involves a big plot twist in the middle of the series. By splitting the series Moffat plans to give viewers one of the most exciting Doctor Who cliffhangers and plot twists ever, leaving them waiting, on the edge of their seats, until the autumn to find out what happens."
Moffat added: "The split series is hugely exciting because viewers will be treated to two premieres, two finales and more event episodes. For the kids it will never be more than a few months to the next Doctor Who! Easter, Autumn, Christmas!!"

A new Doctor Who game, entitled 'Amy's History Hunt' is now available to play exclusively on the official Doctor Who website. It stars Karen Gillan as Amy Pond and includes a short story by Paul Cornell, the writer of Father's Day, Human Nature and The Family of Blood.
As the Doctor has disappeared and taken his sonic screwdriver with him, you'll need to enter a sequence of digits in order to crack the code that opens the safe. All you have to do is answer questions about friends of the Doctor. If you get all three questions right about a single person you release a digit and move a step further to opening the safe. But Amy explains all this in the video!
Watch her message and then click on 'Start the History Hunt' to begin the adventure! Initially you'll get a choice of three people you can investigate first. After selecting one of them you should click on the 'Find out more about...' icon. You'll be whisked away to another page where you can either plunge straight into the questions by clicking on 'Unlock a piece of the code' or find out more about the person by following links to websites and exclusive videos. All the answers to the questions can be found in there somewhere!
By correctly answering three questions you'll release a digit that automatically registers on the safe's read out. When you've cracked the code you'll have opened the Doctor's safe and find his favourite painting. And as a sign of the Doctor gratitude for your help you'll get an exclusive short story that fills you in in on what he's been up to whilst you've been helping Amy!
Right now there are three people you can investigate and answer questions about - Vincent Van Gogh, Winston Churchill and Agatha Christie. But we'll be adding more at the end of the week.
