We’ve all been waiting for the announcement so we can start to plan for 2013 and the massive Doctor Who celebrations that’ll be taking place and finally, our patience has been rewarded: Doctor Who is coming back, confirmed in the newest edition of the official Doctor Who Magazine! Oh dear, was that a bit of an anti-climax?
Well, it shouldn’t be – because the return of Doctor Who to the television next year will form the most pivotal part of the central hub for the fiftieth anniversary and the even better news is that the final eight episodes of series seven will start in April, so for everyone who’s been missing Doctor Who in the sunshine – rejoice! It’s reclaimed its original schedule spot that it’s had since 2005.
At the same time that we’ll be sitting down to enjoy new Doctor Who, the production team will start filming the fiftieth anniversary special that we’ll be treated to in November; Producer, Marcus Wilson has described the episode as ‘a love letter to fans’ which can only mean that Steven Moffat has excelled himself once again.
Meanwhile, you may already have seen Matt Smith is gearing up to star in the 2013 Doctor Who Christmas special as well:
We’ve got Doctor Who‘s 50th anniversary coming up in November 2013, and one assumes there’ll be another Christmas special after that, and I’d hope to be part of it.
So for all of you worried that the Eleventh Doctor will regenerate soon, breathe easy and focus on the overload of Eleventh Doctor brilliance that you’ll be getting next year!
