We've just finished season 31, and are starting season 32, I'm pretty sure. The specials were more season 30b than their own season. (Of course, I could be counting wrong. But I have been counting this way since starting the show. MY WHOLE LIFE IS A LIE!!!) *Ahem* It is, however, series 6. OR series 2 if you ask the Moff.
... Doctor Who is as good at numbers as it is at science ...
Doctor Who's science ability, like it's numbers ability, varies with the seasons. Some earlier Pertwee stories were very serious business about it (mostly the Liz Shaw episodes), to the point where it was like an orgy in smart people wearing lab coats.
