The unnamed ITV executive said: ''There was so much excitement because they had been so successful 'The One Show'. But it took about 10 minutes on day one for optimism to give way to depression. ''Despite the critics he appeared to dig deep and gave his all to make it a success. »

Here's everything we know so far about the biggest British TV show's return:

1. When is it back?

The Launch Show will air, as usual, three weeks earlier. Due to some funny little show called Tumble, it looks like the Launch Show will air on a Sunday this year, on September 7.

Jenna Coleman coy on Doctor Who exit talk: 'I like the quitting rumours'

22 August 2014 4:35 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Jenna Coleman remained very coy about rumours that she's exiting Doctor Who during an appearance on This Morning today (August 22).

The actress, who plays the Doctor's companion Clara Oswald, said that she wouldn't confirm her departure because she believed that the uncertainty was benefiting the show.

"The truth is, I don't want to tell you the truth," Coleman said.

"I quite like these rumours. People don't have any idea [if I'm staying or going]. I think people can watch the show, not knowing whether I am [going] or not, and I think that's exciting."

Speaking about working with new Doctor Peter Capaldi, Coleman claimed that her new leading man had a "glimpse of naughtiness", and that the pair had been laughing continually since the third day on set.

During an appearance on The One Show on Thursday (August 21), Capaldi played down rumours about his co-star departing the sci-fi show.
