On the plus side this suggests no regeneration/12th Doctor in November!

Re: Officially no series 8 in 2013

Has it been announced if the Christmas episode will be a stand alone episode or not? Could they possibly make the 60 minute special in November and the Christmas episode a two part episode like The End of Time?

Since they're not starting shooting until September, I doubt they'd be able to finish post-production on a two-part special in time for Christmas broadcast. Unless there aren't going to be any episodes of series 8 in the spring, in which case they might be able to pull it off.

I don't think Kaijufan was proposing adding a New Year's Day special like for Tennant; instead, he/she was suggesting that maybe the two episodes we knew about (the Anniversary Special that's shot/shooting already, and the Christmas special they'll be filming in September) might be themselves a two-parter.

The problem then is you're asking people to pay money to go to the cinema to get half a story.

Half a story anyways. It would seem like there's even less than there is. I still think the series finale is a part one. Except a bit more loosely linked than usual like in so many Moffat two-parters. Christmas should have the Daleks as the main attraction.

And? People go to the cinema for a mere part of a story all the freakin' time. ("Lord of the Rings", "Harry Potter" and "Twilight" being the most obvious examples off the top of my head).

But as Captaindemotion pointed out, this is going to air on television, more or less for free. That fact, along with the short running time (compared to most other theatrical releases) make it very unlikely that any rumored "theatrical" release of the anniversary special will ever actually occur, at least as a "stand-alone" feature. However it's possible that TPTB have plans for a much larger Dr Who theatrical event of some kind, which includes a big screen showing of the special, but only as a part of a much larger event.

The BBC aren't allowed in their charter to make any theatrical, commercial film required viewing to understand their programming.

It doesn't matter though as this will air on TV.

I'm expecting them in the Anniversary Special, frankly. I can imagine Moffat talking excitedly thus: "Daleks have always been scary and sent kids behind the sofa, but now in 3-D they're terrifying in a whole new dimension!" I can't see Moffat passing up the opportunity to do 3-D Daleks, because if he doesn't then it's likely that at some point in the future another producer will.

As did I. After all, 2013 is also the fiftieth anniversary of the Daleks.

But I think the 3-D-ness gives a whole new impetus to the Daleks in the anniversary special, just so there can be multiple shots of Dalek plungers and egg beaters sticking out of the "screen" at the audience.

The blurb for the Series 7.2 box set kind of gives the game away that they're back before then.* And given that the only episode that's an almost total blank is the finale, I guess that's where they'll be.

(It also doesn't include the Xmas Special but does mention REG as a guest star.)

Are you referring to "The Snowmen"? I thought that was supposed to be in the Series 7 Part 2 DVD set. Or is that now being released separately?
