BBC One have confirmed that “Doctor Who” will return for a fifth season in Spring 2010 – meaning the regular show will take a break in 2009.
The thirteen episode fourth season, which went into production in July 2007, will hit UK screens in Spring 2008. There will also be a Christmas special episode both this December and in 2008.
In 2009 the show will return with three specials with David Tennant still in the role and executive producer Russell T Davies still involved.
The full length thirteen episode fifth series will transmit in 2010.
