It's been recently confirmed that Doctor Who will return for Season 8 with the return of Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor, and now the BBC has announced that there will be a Christmas Special this year as well.

On top of that it is also confirmed that Steven Moffat will be back for Season 8, as there were previous rumors of his departure.

The Doctor Who Season 7 finale just aired this past weekend which revealed a huge teaser going into this November's 50th Anniversary special as well.

Now we learn we'll get more Doctor Who a month later.

Via the BBC:

We’re delighted to confirm a new series of Doctor Who has been commissioned and the show’s lead writer and executive producer, Steven Moffat, has revealed he’s already plotting a brand new run of adventures for the Doctor.

And given that this year’s Christmas Special will be rounding off such a spectacular year we’re sure it will kick off the Doctor’s next half century in style!

The Doctor Who 50th Anniversary airs November 23rd starring Matt Smith and sees the return of David Tennant, Billie Piper, Jemma Redgrave, Joaana Page - and the Zygons!
