Moffat reaffirms no split for Series 8

doctor-who-2013-logoAt last night’s 11th Doctor BFI celebration, Steven Moffat reaffirmed that Peter Capaldi’s debut series in 2014 will not be split.

Series 8 therefore will make it the first time since 2010 that Doctor Who will have a continuous, uninterrupted run.

Back in October, Moffat stated there would be at least 13 episodes for broadcast beginning Autumn 2014.
