I am very excited, but Whovians have this advantage over fans of many other shows, that we don’t have to wait for confirmations because it is a given. Doctor Who is such a hit and such a classic that we can already be sure there will be 9th and 10th season. Maybe not with Matt, but the Doctor will be around a long time.
