The BBC are delighted to confirm that Series 34 (8) has been commissioned and the show's lead writer and executive producer, Steven Moffat, has revealed that he has begun writing the next set of adventures for the Doctor and Clara.
But way before that hits our screens we have a huge amount to look forward to. Your calendars should already have a big red circle around 23 November because that’s when the TARDIS returns in the frankly Earth-shattering adventure that celebrates half a century of Doctor Who. This 3D special stars Matt Smith and Jenna Coleman with David Tennant and John Hurt, seen briefly at the end of The Name of the Doctor. Billie Piper returns alongside Jemma Redgrave, Joanna Page… and the Zygons!
Later this year, the BBC also premieres An Adventure in Space and Time, the brilliant drama written by Mark Gatiss that looks at the genesis of Doctor Who. If this video location report is anything to go by, we’re in for a memorable insight into the show’s origins.
This year’s Christmas Special will be rounding off a spectacular year and lead into the next series in style. The BBC have big plans in place that will well and truly celebrate the Doctor’s half-centenary. I will post them as and when the news breaks.
