In the latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine, Who showrunner Steven Moffat confirmed what we have been hearing all along.
Moffat says Season 7 will not start until next Fall, but does say the wait will be well worth it.
"For me, as a kid, when the afternoon got darker and there was a thrill of cold in the air, I knew that even though summer was over, the TARDIS was coming back! So yes, that's part of the plan, that's part of the reason for this little delay. But it’s not the whole story."
"And yes, you got me. We needed a little more time to prepare for everything we’ve got planned. That, above all, is why we needed this little gap. Just be a tiny bit patient, and trust me, we’ll make it up to you. For full and comprehensive details of the spectacle to come, consult your fondest memories in a couple of years time."
Moffat continues, teasing about the Doctor Who 50th Annivesary in 2013 as well.
"What, in the end, does an anniversary matter, as many a loving spouse has had occasion to ask while bravely attempting to dodge shoes. But a big old anniversary is coming, for all of us, isn’t it? Be assured planning has already started. Very soon now, Doctor Who is going to enter production for the longest sustained period we've ever attempted, and the biggest and best and maddest time ever to be a fan of this wonderful old show is rumbling towards us."
