    It's not been commissioned, but non of us here are privy to the meetings between the Dave's execs and Doug Naylor. Maybe the lead cast have some inkling as to what's been said. Nothing concrete, but I'm fairly confident that this flurry of activity is indicative of some imminent news. Plus, the (frankly startling) buzz Craig's, Danny's and Robert's words have caused can only make Dave eager to get this thing rolling.

    That is disappointing, I have to admit I only quickly read through that article and was probably a bit hasty in taking it at face value. I know that no-one in any position to know will be able to shed any light on this, but I really can't help wondering why there has been apparently so little progress in what is now over a year since RDX.

    I'm starting to get a bit impatient too. In fact, maybe we should try begging?

    It's er.... :eek:ops: Friday new news article from Seb day! :-D

    That's all. Not like I was cleverly trying to prophesy the announcement of a new series or anything [​IMG]

    Gambled it all on kudos or shame. Wishful thinking... :roll:

    You got my hopes up there that there was some big announcement and I'd missed it. :-(

    I noticed that the news articles were in different order this morning and the forum was down for maintenance. So I hoped that they might be going to add a new news item hoping it was about series 11. Though new news only seems to be announced on Friday anyway. When looking at the old items I noticed the commission for X was in April 2011 a full 8 months before filming started. If Doug reckoned at DJ this year that filming for 11 would start in Feb 2014 - only 3 months away - why is it taking so long to get a commission? Is it because of Craig and Danny's commitment to other TV programmes and they are having difficulty getting them some time from them to film RD XI? Is it the budget? Also in doug's tweet he said "not yet" - that could be taken as it will get a commission at some point. But I am worried because Robert's blog has been taken down.

    I'm still hopeful it will happen cos of the popularity of X. It's just it's a shame it looks like it might not be on our screens til 2015 :-(. You can't help but wish ideally that they could have built on the momentum of X but I suppose there was 3 and a half years between BtE and X. Though the sooner they get XI done and dusted then the more likelier it is that we could see XII though of course one day RD will have to reach a conclusion as all good things must. But ideally with the strength of X it would have been nice to have seen two more series.

    One of my big wishes for Christmas is that XI will be commissioned. But still for now Hey, ho, pip and dandy:lol: and I will keep checking the site!

    Smeg! Was it that long? Okay, that's pretty short when considering the gap between 7 and BtE, but the time seems to have flown by for me, although it seemed to take a while for X to go ahead at the time...

    Another sign that I'm getting old. Time is moving too fast. (Off-topic, but last Christmas only seems a short while ago to me, in some ways.)
