BBC Confirms Series 8 & Anniversary Episode Date!

The news we’ve all been impatiently waiting for has been confirmed by the BBC at last – Doctor Who Series 8 has been commissioned!


Thanks to the official Doctor Who website we now know that everything is official for the next run of episodes, which may even by Steven Moffat’s last, although the showrunner is apparently busy planning the series. Meanwhile, Matt Smith has said that he expects shooting to start late this year or early in 2014. At this point we don’t know how many episodes will comprise Series 8.

At the same time, the BBC has also finally confirmed that the Doctor Who anniversary episode (described as a “frankly Earth-shattering adventure that celebrates half a century of Doctor Who“) will indeed air on the fortuitous calendar quirk of Saturday, 23rd November, 2013.

The countdown has already begun!

(Cheers Paddy!)
