It’s not the most surprising news, but Doctor Who will be back again this Christmas, and will return for a full series next year too…

We doubt that any of the what we're about to tell you is a massive surprise, but amidst the clamour of excitement for the first screening of the brand new Doctor Who yesterday, it was revealed that the BBC has commissioned a sixth series of the show since its revival, to be screened next year.

Also, the BBC has confirmed that there will, as usual, be a Doctor Who Christmas special in December, which will be penned by Steven Moffat. Looking forward to that already.
