New Doctor Who Series 7 Title & Image!

Doctor Who Series 7b kicks off in just a few weeks time – 29 days, in fact – and to celebrate this fact the BBC has released a brand new image!

Matt Smith returns in Doctor Who Series 7b

The Doctor and Clara are back! (Click for hi-res version)

As you can see from the image, both the Cybermen and the Ice Warriors can be seen in amongst a selection of monsters that surely represent the challenges faced by the Doctor this time around!

In addition, we can tell you that the series will kick off with an episode called The Bells of St John.

Set in London against the backdrop of new and old iconic landmarks – The Shard and Westminster Bridge – “The Bells of St. John” introduces a new nemesis, the Spoonheads, who battle the Doctor as he discovers something sinister is lurking in the Wi-Fi.

While we’re still a few weeks away from Easter Saturday (March 30th) we can at least look forward to the adventures of the Eleventh Doctor and the mysterious and impossible Clara with the knowledge that this image has now been burned into our retinas, never to be forgotten.

All that remains now is to dream, speculate and convince yourself you’re right. An image plus a title always leads to this – but who will second guess The Grand Moff and win?

    And the Ice Warriors – glimpsed in the second image – look like the Ice Warriors! Hurrah!

  2. castellanspandrel says:

    Pah – I meant in the image above (having seen 2 different ones on the BBC’s site).

  3. a fan says:

    Spoonheads seems like an apt moniker.

    Ice Warrior looks great. Seems very true to the original, yet not so… 1960s BBC special effects.

    I hope this is the last of the Cybus-style Cybermen in The Last Cyberman. After watching Tomb Of The Cybermen on BBC America, I want them to regain their silence and eeriness. I’d also like to see a return towards the bandaged Cybermen of yesteryear.

    Is the Doctor wearing a purple, velvet smoking jacket? Seems a bit familiar, right?

  4. GiantEnemy says:

    Is it just me, or is that The Trickster from Sarah Jane Adventures on the left?

  5. John Ronson says:

    Looks like the iconic clamp-hands have gone, this is a shame. It’s like removing a Dalek’s sink plunger, just not as good without it.
