The hit BBC programme left viewers waiting after The FA Cup coverage overran by six long minutes.
Already moved from its usual slot of 7.20pm, Whovians hit out at the broadcaster, taking to social media to scold putting the eagerly anticipated episode on hold even further.
One viewer tweeted: “Hey, @GaryLineker you're great and I'm glad everyone enjoyed the football, but we want #DoctorWho to start now please,” as another posted: “I wish the football would hurry up and f**k off I want to watch #DoctorWho.”
A third wrote: “Oh come on football just fast forward the credits already I want #DoctorWho.”

But as the minutes dragged on, fans started to lose their patience and slammed the BBC for not getting their “priorities” right.
One fan raged: “When the FA Cup overruns so #DoctorWho starts late… @BBCOne needs to get it's priorities in order obviously!”
“We get it, soccer is great – now shut off these highlights and bring me #DoctorWho @BBC @bbcdoctorwho,” huffed another.
