The BBC has given the green light to 14 more episodes of Doctor Who.
The episodes will air in 2012 (though the first could air as the holiday special later this year) BBC Head of Communications Sam Hodges confirmed via Twitter.
Producer Steven Moffat confirmed he will be back at the helm for the next series and that current Doctor Matt Smith will continue in the lead role.
“14 eps + Matt DEFINITELY. I’ve got a plan and I’m NOT TELLING YOU WHAT IT IS,” Moffat tweeted. “Now hush or River shoots you with her Spoiler Gun.”
No word yet on when the episodes will air or if they’ll be split up like this year’s run. (I expect the BBC is waiting to see the results of the split season before deciding one way or the other). And no word yet on if Karen Gillan will return as Amy Pond.
