Doctor Who Series 7 Starts Filming

Guest stars revealed as filming kicked off this week on the new series of Doctor Who!

CAUTION: MILD SPOILERS On the 20th of February production officially began on the 7th season of Doctor Who. Shooting took place inside a private house in Church Road, Penarth with the location set to represent the home of Amy & Rory on what is thought to be the second episode of the season. Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill were seen on location as well as the first confirmed guest star of Season 7 actor and comedian Mark Williams.

Williams is most famous for his work on The Fast Show and as the role of Arthur Weasley in the Harry Potter films, it's rumoured that Williams is set to play the role of Rory's father (see on location picture below, his similar dress style to Darvill's character is something to be noted).

In a recent exclusive from BlogtorWho the first official promo picture was release for the new season (see top picture) alongside new guest star announcements:

New guest stars so far confirmed to star will include David Bradley (Argus Filch in the Harry Potter movies), Rupert Graves (Lestrade in Sherlock and alongside David Tennant in Single Father) and, as announced yesterday, Mark Williams. Series 7 will then see a dramatic turn of events when The Doctor meets a new friend. Prepare yourselves for thrills, adventures and dramatic surprises as the show builds towards its enormous, climactic 50th anniversary year. 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.

Season 7 of Doctor Who is currently set for release throughout Autumn 2012. You can read the 7 things we want to see in the new series HERE.

This is the rather strange story of how Jamie Slough, at 3am one morning decided to try and form a cohesive sentence on his laptop by bashing his head on a nearby keyboard while finishing some university work. It's been doing him surprisingly well for the last few years and things don't seem to be changing anytime soon. At most times Jamie can be found reading from a large stack of comic books, catching up on TV shows such as Doctor Who, Breaking Bad & Curb Your Enthusiasm, begging people for work (but less said about that the better) and pretty much trying to be analytical about stuff. When he's not doing any of those he's writing or replacing yet another broken keyboard...
