Doctor Who to return for 10th series?

'Doctor Who' is to return for a 10th series.

The BBC appeared to announce that the sci-fi series will continue following the upcoming ninth series in their Worldwide Annual Review, according to Digital Spy.

On the 32nd page of the document, matters listed as under review in the past year include "investments in 'The Musketeers' S3 and 'Doctor Who' S10".

And while it was announced in February that 'The Musketeers' - which stars Luke Pasqualino, Tom Burke, Santiago Cabrera and Howard Charles - would be returning for a third series, this is the first official confirmation that there will be more episodes of 'Doctor Who'.

The ninth series of the hit show - which sees Peter Capaldi reprise his role as the titular Time Lord alongside Jenna-Louise Coleman as his companion Clara Oswold - is set to launch on September 19 on BBC One.

It's believed the tenth series would air at some point in 2016 although it's unclear whether Coleman and Capaldi will be returning.

Meanwhile, Jenna recently revealed she thinks it's "absolutely possible" that there could be a female Doctor in the future.

Asked if she thought it could happen, she said previously: "I think it's absolutely possible. There's no reason why not."

Capaldi himself added that he "would expect" for the character to be played by a woman at some point after he leaves the part.

He shared: "I would expect so at some point, why not? Absolutely.

"I would expect it at any moment. If you turn around right now I might suddenly transform."
