As announced on the official site, filming the season 7 of Doctor Who will start tomorrow in Cardiff and somewhere in Wales. There were announced a lot of surprises, as usual, especially itâ€™s already been confirmed that Toby Whithouse and Chris Chibnall are writing episodes for the new series of Doctor Who.
The first director to shout ‘action’ will be the award-winning Saul Metzstein whose previous credits include Micro Men (starring Alexander Armstrong and Martin Freeman), the critically acclaimed Late Night Shopping and BBC Wales’ Upstairs Downstairs. For the very first time, Doctor Who will be produced at the new BBC Roath Lock Studios in Cardiff, whichÂ officiallyÂ open in March. The production team includes Steven Moffat (Executive Producer and lead writer), Caroline Skinner (Executive Producer) and Marcus Wilson (Producer).
The new series will see Matt Smith return as the Doctor in what Steven Moffat has described as ‘the biggest, the best and the most ambitious season we’ve ever made’. Karen Gillan (Amy) and Arthur Darvill (Rory) are both back, for what will be their final voyage with the Doctor – a thrilling rollercoaster ride which will culminate in a heart-breaking farewell to the Ponds. But there will be more shocks, surprises and adventures to come when the Doctor meets a new friend, in the last very place he could ever have expected…

The Huffington Post announces about an unholy allianceÂ between “Star Trek’s” Borg and “Doctor Who’s” Cybermen into a story into crossover comics. The story will be published in May, courtesy of an IDW comic book.
According to a Monday press release from the company, “Star Trek: The Next Generation/Doctor Who: Assimilation2″ will feature “an unholy alliance” between the two villains. This sounds like an excellent idea for a comic book and, not just because two races of relentless, mechanized villains are better than one, but because an on-screen depiction of that kind of epic tale would be unworkable (especially given that “TNG” ended in 1994) and hugely expensive.
So who you gonna call when two mechanical races team up to bring disaster to humanity? Jean-Luc Picard and the Doctor, obviously.
