“Prepare yourselves for thrills, adventures and dramatic surprises as the show builds towards its enormous, climactic 50th anniversary year,” said the statement.
“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.”
We also discovered who will be making guest appearances in the seventh series, with Harry Potter actors David Bradley (Mr Filch) and Mark Williams (Mr Weasley) due to appear. Rupert Graves, who plays Inspector Lestrade in Moffat’s Sherlock will also be cameoing.
With Amy and Rory Pond set to leave the show in a “heart-breaking storyline”, the 50th year of Doctor Who looks set to be the biggest yet.
