And while the name has still yet to be confirmed, we finally have a picture together of our new team comprising of Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman ...
Here are the Doctor and Clara, posing for their first of many photos together that the BBC will be releasing over the next few days. I have to admit both Matt and Jenna do look lovely together and I can't wait to see what their dynamic is going to be from Christmas onwards. The episode this one is from is going to be the 11th episode of Series 7.
A guest star confirmed for the episode that was being shot last week is Dougray Scott, best known for his roles in Desperate Housewives and United. No idea what his character is going to be though but he does look dressed in period (ish) gear, doesn't he?
Meanwhile, both Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill were on set this week to do some pick up shots for the fourth episode of Series 7 and not only was an Ood spotted on set but it looks like a Headless Monk was too. I do wonder what the heck is going on in that episode, considering there's also the return of Rory's dad, Henry the 8th and UNIT as well as those mysterious black cubes as well.
And the Doctor is on top of the TARDIS with an orange phone - another one from episode 4. Some dialogue heard included the Doctor telling Amy/Rory that the helmic regulator was hit by an arrow. Also, it seems that Rupert Graves will be playing a character called Riddell in the second episode of Series 7, who has a past with the Doctor and Mark Gatiss will be writing two episodes in the latter half of the series, one of them rumoured to be a Victorian adventure with Silurians.
Doctor Who returns to BBC1 in the Autumn.
