Multiple 50th Specials, Series 8 in 2014
We know that 2013 will see the remaining 8 episodes of Doctor Who Series 7 airing early in the year. Beyond that there’s obviously the 50th Anniversary celebrations, but what about Series 8?
In the latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine, Matt Smith appears to confirm that there will be multiple Anniversary specials, with a full series of the show not airing until 2014.
Smith says Moffat’s first Anniversary episode, although not written yet, sounds great and the idea is “as brilliant and as mental as you’d expect from Steven”.
Smith adds that Moffat pitched the next series (2014) to him and said, “Are you ready to cry?”
When pressed for more details, Smith says: “I know absolutely nothing that I can tell you.”
So it looks like 2013 will consist of the other “half” of Series 7 and an undisclosed amount of 50th anniversary episodes. This also seems to suggest that the 11th Doctor will be around for a while yet.
