Are you prepared for the new season of Doctor Who, a time-travelling journey through space helmed by writer Steven Moffat? This seventh season of the revitalized series promises to deliver 14 "big, block-buster movie episodes" with each one being "a brand new epic adventure featuring new monsters and some familiar foes as you've never seen them before." This season also promises to document the last days that Amy and Rory Pond (Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill respectively) will traverse threats at the side of the Doctor (played by Matt Smith). But in the heartbreaking wake of their departure, the Doctor will find solice with a new friend: a recently announced companion portrayed by Jenna-Louse Coleman. As the advertising promises: "Prepare yourselves for thrills, adventures and dramatic surprises as the show builds towards its enormous, climactic 50th anniversary year."
Above is the trailer for the this new seventh season, please watch it before looking at the following stills which reveal some of the most notable moments shown.
Yes, the return of the Daleks! And not only have they reappeared en masse, but their form has reverted to a more traditional interpretation. When we last saw them, in the fifth season episode "Victory of the Daleks," they were reborn in a colorful but bulky formâ¦ a couple of which can be spoted in the trailer as well. Regardless, I for one am happy to see this return of the traditional Dalek appearance.
And the Weeping Angels are back too! After the brilliant introduction in the third season episode "Blink," they made a rather lackluster return in the season five two-parter "The Time of Angels" & "Flesh and Stone." But with the knowledge that the Weeping Angels are returning, what does that imply aboutâ¦
â¦this cherubish statue which blows Rory's match out? Is this a relative of the Weeping Angels? Their pre-pubescent form? But if it can move while being watched â the Weeping Angels' only true weakness â then this could pose a real threat.
And, of course, River Song returns, continuing the tragic tale of the Doctor's love story. What new surprises will this character bring to the table this time?
Not only does their appear to be a Western episode featuring a cyborg (above), but also one that has â as the Doctor eloquently puts it â "Dinosaursâ¦ on a space ship!" And, as any fan of the show knows, it's the way they make these seemingly outrageous concepts work that truly drives this show week to week.
And we finish with the Doctor carrying Amy's (hopefully only) unconscious form, as Rory asks: "Who killed all the Daleks?" The Doctor, with a sly smile, replies: "Who do you think?" Hmmâ¦ I have my guesses.

Wednesday, August 8, 2012 - 4:44pmIt's been wonderful to see Doctor Who, since the 2005 relaunch, permeate the cultural mind more and more. And while it seems unlikely that geek girls dressing like Leela will overtake the hordes in Slave Leia garb, the options for TARDIS inspired attire of late have become staggering.
