It seems unlikely they wouldn't do one, those are always big events for BBC.
As are the series. I wonder where the money and runtime got used.
As I understand, the pla always was to hold season 8 back until 2014 and make 2013 something similar Tennant's gap year back in 2009. Even though we already had something similar with 2012.

I was expecting 90 mins too as 60 is a really ordinary length. They did 75 mins just a few years ago.
Reviewing the episode lengths, the only ones to have gone over 45 minutes:
The Christmas Invasion (60)
The Runaway Bride (60)
Last of the Time Lords (52)
Voyage of the Damned (72)
Partners in Crime (50)
Fires of Pompeii (50)
Turn Left (50)
Journey's End (65)
The Next Doctor (60)
Planet of the Dead (60)
The Waters of Mars (60)
The End of Time Part 1 (60)
The End of Time Part 2 (75)
The Eleventh Hour (65)
The Vampires of Venice (50)
The Pandorica Opens (50)
The Big Bang (55)
A Christmas Carol (60)
A Good Man Goes to War (50)
Let's Kill Hitler (50)
The God Complex (50)
The Doctor, the Widow, and the Wardrobe (60)
Asylum of the Daleks (50)
The Snowmen (60)
