Re: Officially no series 8 in 2013

It doesn't include a Christmas episode so most probably it's not a 100% perfect list.
The 2013 Christmas Special (and series 8, for that matter) either hasn't been commissioned yet or has been commissioned and not announced yet, so BBC Worldwide (even if they know it's coming) can't jump the gun and mention it in their marketing materials for merchandising shows. That said, I'm not optimistic that there will be anything more than what that marketing material shows for 2013.

The disappointing news, of course, is that the anniversary special is only planned for 60 minutes. This may make a televised multi-Doctor story for the 50th less likely; an hour isn't a lot of room to fit twenty-odd actors all competing for attention and lines.
