I think that Netflix is just taking a lesson from Steven Moffat. Putting out false statements and hype to keep people talking about the show during the down time without needing to pay for advertising. It’s worked very well for Doctor Who so far. Now when Moffat puts out information, you never know if it is real and everyone on the web that has the slightest interest in the show is all over it. It’s great advertising. But then again, maybe she is leaving. I guess we’ll find out next season.
