Another Returning Monster (Doctor Who Season 5 Spoilers)

I know this week should all be about The Waters Of Mars and it is, but here are some recent (ish) updates on filming for Season 5.

Eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith) and Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) seemingly in the midst of a discussion or pally moment, I'm not really sure which to be honest.
Apparently this story (still episodes 8 and 9) does feature a family that comes into contact with our new Time Team. One of the characters is called Elliot.

Vaguely in this photo and if you check my last set report, you're supposed to see a Silurian. If it's them, fantastic but if not, I'm sure they'll be an interesting adversary, especially to get a two parter dedicated to them.

Some more scenes filmed at a local church. I'm guessing this was one of the places where the Silurians (if it's them for sure) were supposed to attack. There does seem to be an old school feeling to this upcoming season, which I'm intrigued by.

Alun Raglan is one of the guest stars confirmed for this story. Nothing too specific has been disclosed in regards to his character. I think he's called Mo Northover. I also read on GallifreyBase that Meera Syal is playing Nasreen Chaudhry. Interesting casting in the latter case. Alun Vega also has the building they're coming out called the "Silurian Senate" on his Flickr account (

And a certain truck shows that UNIT have returned. Notice the words, "Byzantium" and "Fanny Magnet" also on the vehicle in question. Apparently this story is to have a bit of a Season 7 feel to it. Reminders of the Pertwee era? Wonderful! After this story is completed, it's supposedly Richard Curtis's episode that gets filmed next and that's going to feature Van Gogh apparently.
