Though already decided months ago, the BBC only confirmed this weekend that "Doctor Who" will return for an eighth season. Brian Minchin will join Steven Moffat as executive producer.
Moffat says he's "already plotting a brand new run of adventures for the Doctor". The press release doesn't mention whether current series star Matt Smith is returning, though Smith himself confirmed his return a few days ago.
Also released is this new vignette featuring the Doctors Ten & Eleven on the set of November's 50th anniversary special.
