The BBC has officially confirmed that Doctor Who has been re-commissioned for a new series, the eighth since the series returned in 2005 and the Thirty Fourth since the series began in 1963.

The official website has revealed that the show’s lead writer and executive producer, Steven Moffat, is already working on the new series and plotting a new run of adventures for the Doctor. The series is expected to start filming at the end of 2013 or beginning of 2014 which suggests a transmission date of Autumn 2014.

The website also looks ahead to the 50th Anniversary later this year and promises big plans are being put in place that will well and truly celebrate the Doctor’s half-centenary.
