Doctor Who is currently in the middle of its sixth season, Matt Smith's second season as The Doctor, but fans don't have to wait any longer for news of another year. It has been renewed for season 7, and there's even word about whether Smith will be returning.
More from Eleven!
Executive producer Steven Moffat has given DW fans some good news via Twitter today. First he retweeted a message from Doctor Who Magazine, which they retweeted from Sam Hodges: "#DoctorWho is returning. Fourteen new episodes have been commissioned with Matt Smith as The Doctor #bbc1" After that, he sent out his own tweet about the renewal: "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"
Matt Smith joined the series in season 5, taking over the lead from David Tennant, who played Ten. He has taken the role and made it his own, and it's good news to hear he'll be back for at least one more season. There isn't yet word about whether Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill, who play Amy Pond and Rory, will return, but it wouldn't be surprising if next season saw a new companion.
Are you excited about Doctor Who season 7? Do you like Matt Smith as The Doctor? Do you want to see more from Amy and Rory or a new companion?
