I can't wait for the new episodes either.
However, the first of the 50th anniversary specials airs Sunday 01/27 at 9pm et. This one is about the first doctor and is followed by a first doctor episode "The Aztecs" from 1964.
They are doing a special for each of the 11 doctors. I believe they are airing 1 per month which will mean the last will air in November (the actual anniversary is 11/23). According to my Doctor Who books, the first episode of Doctor Who was the first thing the BBC aired after they finished their coverage of JFK's assassination. Because they didn't think anyone would have watched it (due to timing), the 1st episode was repeated the following week.
Yes, I've been a Whovian for a very long time.
