‘Doctor Who’: Series 7 commissioned, starring Matt Smith

Posted Filed under

Hodges announced on Twitter this afternoon: “Doctor Who is returning. Fourteen new episodes have been commissioned with Matt Smith as The Doctor.”

Doctor Who‘s mid-series finale ‘A Good Man Goes To War’ aired last weekend, with the show returning to BBC One for the remaining six episodes of Series 6 in the Autumn.

Guest star Simon Fisher-Becker, who plays Dorium Maldavar, recently told CultBox that “everything will be answered in Episode 13 [of Series 6], but then something else will be asked, so you’ve got the cliffhanger to the new series.”

Head writer Steven Moffat has commented on the news on Twitter, saying : “14 eps + Matt DEFINITELY. I’ve got a plan and I’m NOT TELLING YOU WHAT IT IS. Now hush or River shoots you with her Spoiler Gun. #formaqueue”
