After last night's Season 7 finale, the BBC confirmed that Doctor Who will return for an eighth season in 2014. The network also revealed that the show's 50th Anniversary special will air on November 23. Here's a statement released on the BBC official website.

"We're delighted to confirm a new series of Doctor Who has been commissioned and the show's lead writer and executive producer, Steven Moffat, has revealed he's already plotting a brand new run of adventures for the Doctor.

But way before that hits our screens we have a huge amount to look forward to. Your calendars should already have a big red circle around November 23 because that's when the TARDIS returns in the frankly Earth-shattering adventure that celebrates half a century of Doctor Who. This 3D special stars Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman with David Tennant and John Hurt, seen briefly at the end of "The Name of the Doctor". Billie Piper returns alongside Jemma Redgrave, Joanna Page... and the Zygons!"

The show also has An Adventure in Space in Time special, written by Mark Gatiss, which explores the origins of Doctor Who, along with the annual Christmas special airing in December.
