This evening’s press launch for the new series has seen confirmation that Doctor Who will return for season 32 in 2011, marking the sixth full series since the shows return in 2005.
A Christmas special will also appear on screens later this year, with Matt Smith returning for a second full series as the Eleventh Doctor!
