The BBC has renewed Doctor Who for an eighth season, the company announced in conjunction with Saturday's Season 7 finale.
[Warning: The following contains spoilers from the Season 7 finale of Doctor Who. If you haven't watched yet, read no further or we'll be forced to sic our memory worm on you.]
One mystery down, and an infinite number more to go on Doctor Who.

Finally, we'll uncover the mystery of the Impossible Girl.
On Saturday's finale of Doctor Who (8/7c, BBC America), Clara (Jenna-Louise Coleman) is called into action when the creepy Whisper Men kidnap Victorian pals Vastra, Jenny and Strax (Neve McIntosh, Catrin Stewart, Dan Starkey). In order to save his friends, the Doctor (Matt Smith) must venture towards the one place that no Timelord should go because it could undo everything in his past, present and future.
Another May weekend, another deluge of season finales — though none are likely to blow the mind with as much daring, panache and imaginative fervor as BBC America's gloriously inventive Doctor Who (Saturday, 8/7c), which signs off until next time-travel with one of its trippiest yet emotionally powerful episodes to date. Steven Moffat's typically clever script, brimming with colorful incident and characters grandly heroic or villainous, finds a nifty way to salute the 50-year history of Doctors as we learn more about the impossibly irrepressible companion Clara (the smashing Jenna-Louise Coleman), first seen in a cosmic haze — "I don't know where I am ... Sometimes I think I'm everywhere at once" — with only one constant to guide her: "I have to save the Doctor." That same impulse prompts lizard lady Vastra, her wife Jenny and the stalwart Strax to summon Clara to a psychic conference call, interrupted by the menacing "Whisper Men" (reminiscent of the ghoulish Gentlemen from Buffy's classic "Hush" episode).

Neil Gaiman is a Whovian at heart, and it's never more clear than in the episodes he writes for Doctor Who.
Following the success of "The Doctor's Wife" two years ago, Gaiman returns with "Nightmare in Silver," which airs Saturday at 8/7c on BBC America. Showrunner Steven Moffat was able to lure back the award-winning writer with one succinct request: Make the Cybermen scary again.
