Doctor Who Magazine has officially confirmed what has been clear for a while now – Series 7 will not air until Autumn 2012.
We have all been wondering,
“When is Doctor Who returning for Season 7?”
Unfortunately, it is going to be a while. We do not have the latest issue of the Doctor Who Magazine, which arrived today, but Doctor Who TV, a UK fan site, has a copy and reported the magazine “officially confirmed” the fall 2012 return of the show.
Take pleasure in the current run of Doctor Who while you can! Sadly, the wait for the next series will be a very long one.
“Doctor Who Magazine has officially confirmed what has been clear for a while now – Series 7 will not air until Autumn 2012.”
Because of the 9 month long shoot on the seventh series not beginning until February 2012, it is going going to be impossible to have a Spring start. The very best we can hope for will be an Easter special which will make the long wait easier to take. There is no promise of an Easter Special.

It seems most likely that only part of Doctor Who Series 7 is going to be aired in the Fall 2012 lineup. The remainder will air the first part of 2013. This means that the Doctor Who Christmas Special 2012 would air in the middle of Series 7 instead of at the end.
This could possibly mean that 2013 would see Doctor Who: Series 8 airing in time for the Doctor Who: 50th Anniversary.
