Celebrated author Neil Gaiman will also contribute a new episode featuring iconic monsters the Cybermen.

Moffat previously revealed that the show's 2013 run would include a "modern urban thriller", a "base-under-siege story", an "absolutely mental" period drama and a "fanboy-pleasing" finale.

A one-off special - celebrating Doctor Who's 50th anniversary - is expected to follow the eight new episodes in November.
