Episode 1? So is it Series 8 that starts at the end of the month then?
BBC Worldwide was telling people last summer that the Pond episodes were "Series 7" and the Clara episodes were "Series 8." Thus it came as a real surprise to me when the DVD of the Pond episodes came out labeled "Series 7 Part 1."
uses an entirely different terminology now. The Pond episodes were "the 2012 series" and the Clara episodes are "the 2013 series."
