Per the announcement, executive producer Steven Moffat is already “plotting a brand new run of adventures for the Doctor.”

On Nov. 23, Doctor Who will celebrate its 50th anniversary with a 3D special starring Matt Smith, Jenna Coleman, former doc and companion David Tennant and Billie Piper, respectively, John Hurt, Jemma Redgrave, and Joanna Page.

The festivities will continue later this year with An Adventure in Space and Time, a TV-movie about the genesis of the long-running series, and the annual Christmas special in December.
