Steven confirms “at least 14 episodes” in Series 7
Steven Moffat spoke to Radio Times recently, remaining as cryptic as ever about what the future holds for Doctor Who. He did, however, confirm that “at least 14 episodes” will be broadcast from Autumn 2012.
“It’ll be returning in the autumn,” he said. “I won’t say when exactly, but it’ll be back in the autumn for a long run. I will just say, it will be at least 14 episodes. We always do 14, because we do the Christmas special as well. So being in the autumn, the Christmas special will be part of it as well.”
Regarding next year’s 50th anniversary, he revealed that “there will never be a better time to be a Doctor Who fan”. He said: “Oh dear God. I think, knowing a certain amount of what’s coming, there will never be a better time, I promise you, and I am just saying this as a Doctor Who fan myself. I promise you, for so many reasons I can’t talk about.”
Filming for Series 7 – which will feature the exit of the Ponds – will begin next month.
