Doctor Who: series 8 “absolutely, definitely confirmed”

Steven Moffat confirmed at last night's Baftas that series 8 of Doctor Who is definitely on, and currently taking over his life...

We last heard from Steven Moffat on Doctor Who‘s eighth season back in February, when the showrunner confirmed he had just started the planning stage for the next run of episodes. Three months on, and according to an interview he gave at last night’s Bafta television awards ceremony, Moffat is right in the thick of it:

“… series eight is absolutely, definitely confirmed. It is real and it’s happening – it’s [taking up] most of my time at the moment.”

Officially announced to be involved in the next series is Jenna-Louise Coleman, though Matt Smith is yet to be confirmed as reprising the lead role. Filming for the 2013 Christmas Special is due to take place late this summer, in August or September.
