On the TARDIS, he reveals there have been some changes: "It's bigger on the inside, has different levels, other rooms including a library, [and is] a different shade of blue outside."

Finally, he says he's here to stay: "I hope to do at least another year, it's a wonderful part and I want to keep it."

And there's an exclusive sneak preview of the Doctor's encounter with vampires.
