“We’re not going to do splits (for series 8), and the same format will repeat exactly the following year like that. So it will be the traditional form.”So with no splits, it looks like Doctor Who has made its permanent move to the autumn, with a ninth, full, series heading to screens in autumn 2015. Here's what the schedule for the next couple of years of Doctor Who looks like:
- Series 8 (August/September 2014)
- 2014 Christmas Special
- Series 9 (August/September 2015)
Doctor Who series eight is currently filming, with Peter Capaldi as the Doctor.
