"We're not going to do splits [in series eight], and the same format will repeat exactly the following year like that - so it will be the traditional form," said the sci-fi drama's head writer.

Doctor Who's eighth series - the first to star Peter Capaldi as the Doctor - is expected to air on BBC One from August.

Filming on the new episodes began this week, with a first-look image of Capaldi on-set with co-star Jenna Coleman (Clara) unveiled on Tuesday (January 7).

The first two instalments will be helmed by Sightseers director Ben Wheatley.

Doctor Who Magazine issue 469 is out now.
