The BBC have confirmed that the sixth episode of Series 8, The Caretaker, will be broadcast on Saturday 27th September at 8.30pm, the show’s latest ever slot.
The episode will last for 45 minutes and will conclude at 9.15pm. The timeslot, an hour later than the previous episode, is due to the new series of Strictly Come Dancing starting that weekend. It’s the same slot that Merlin and Atlantis have previously occupied, and has usually been successful for those shows.
The episode, co-written by Gareth Roberts and Steven Moffat, will air on the same day on BBC America at 9/8C.
