Doctor Who - Series 7 First Picture/Casting Information

Yes, another update for the seventh series of Doctor Who but with cast pics, press releases and more casting announced, it's hard not to update everyone.

You can tell that Amy and Rory have been married for a while now because they're continuing to dress like each other but at least the Doctor isn't trading in his braces, tweed and bowtie just yet and below is a press release for the new series.

Filming has just started on series seven of Doctor Who in Cardiff. This series will see the last days of the Ponds with Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill returning for their final, rollercoaster voyage with The Doctor.

Amy and Rory have been at the Doctor's side for more than two series but what will he do after their heartbreaking departure?

On returning for his third series as the Eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith says: "It's thrilling and exciting to be back and working with two of my closest friends."

Karen Gillan adds: "It's just brilliant to be back on the TARDIS with Matt and Arthur for our craziest adventures yet."

Plus new guest stars confirmed so far include David Bradley, Rupert Graves and Mark Williams.

Series seven will then see a dramatic turn of events when The Doctor meets a new friend. Prepare yourselves for thrills, adventures and dramatic surprises as the show builds towards its enormous, climactic 50th anniversary year. Fourteen big, blockbuster-movie episodes - each a brand new epic adventure featuring new monsters and some familiar foes as you've never seen them before.

As a Sherlock fan, it's nice to have Lestrade for an episode but I'm wondering when/if we'll see Benedict Cumberbatch/Martin Freeman/Louise Brealey/Lara Pulver/Andrew Scott in the new series as well?

I'll post more spoilers and pictures as when we get them.

Sounds like they're indeed going with the "no two-parters" formula.

I guess we're going just have single episodes. Should be an interesting change though.
