Doctor Who A Go For Season 32
In an announcement calculated to surprise absolutely no one, Doctor Who executive producer Piers Wenger confirmed the series been renewed for the 2011 season, it’s 31st overall and sixth post-revival. A new now-mandatory Christmas Special will be served up between seasons.
Both Doctor Eleven Matt Smith and Companion Karen Gillan will be returning, as will award-winning overseer Steven Moffat. According to Britain’s ATV Network, filming begins this July.
This announcement comes on the heals of the the BBC’s two-season renewal of The Sarah Jane Adventures, its fourth and fifth seasons. No word yet on the fate of Torchwood, which has been in limbo ever since the Fox Network started considering a United States pick-up of the series.
The 31st/6th season of Doctor Who debuts on the BBC April 3rd and on BBC America April 17th.
