“My main job now is staring in awe at the 50th Anniversary Special and wondering ‘How the hell do we follow on from that?! Then, when I stop gawping and wondering, ‘How did they do that bit, and that one, and that bit!’ I will start work on the Christmas episode, written by Steven Moffat himself.”On what we'll be seeing in 2014, Minchin said:
“A whole new series! But we certainly won’t be releasing the details of that series right now in May 2013. Oh dear, that sounds mean! Well, I can tell you that I have just spent a very happy few days meeting some scarily clever writers, and we have an incredible set of stories to work on. More adventures ahead!”It's now looking fairy likely that series 8 will begin in autumn 2014, but will it be split like the previous two series? It's far too early to tell (we should be seeing confirmation of scheduling for Series 8 in a few months), but Minchin's comment about a 'whole series' in 2014 does sound promising. Will we be seeing a full 13-episode run in autumn 2014?
