The BBC has just announced a 10th series of Doctor Who – though you may have missed it.
News of more episodes beyond this year’s latest 12-part run was hidden away on page 32 of the BBC Worldwide Annual Review. Matters listed as ‘under review’ in the past year include “investments in The Musketeers S3 and Doctor Who S10.”
It’s been confirmed since February that The Musketeers would be returning for a third series, but this is the first official confirmation of more Doctor Who. The tenth series will presumably air in 2016.
The ninth series of Doctor Who, starring Peter Capaldi as the 12th incarnation of the infamous timelord and Jenna Coleman as his companion, Clara, will launch on 19th September on BBC One.
Watch the trailer for the upcoming 9th series below.
