The BBC have revealed 'Doctor Who' will feature "blockbuster movie" episodes and guest stars including Rupert Graves, Mark Williams and David Bradley
The new series of 'Doctor Who' will feature 14 "big, blockbuster-movie episodes".
Filming is underway for season seven of the hit sci-fi drama - which will see Arthur Darvill and Karen Gillan depart their roles as Rory Williams and Amy Pond - and show bosses have promised plenty of drama in the build up to the show's 50th anniversary.
BBC chiefs have promised a "dramatic turn of events when The Doctor meets a new friend", new monsters and "familiar foes", while there will also be a string of guest stars.
Among those announced to appear alongside Matt Smith in the lead role are 'Harry Potter' actors Mark Williams and David Bradley - who starred in the wizard franchise as Arthur Weasley and Argus Filtch respectively - and 'Sherlock' star Rupert Graves.
Though she is leaving the show, Karen is looking forward to some of her "craziest" experiences ever on the programme.
She said: "It's just brilliant to be back on the Tardis with Matt and Arthur for our craziest adventures yet."
Matt is equally delighted to be back.
He said: "It's thrilling and exciting to be back and working with two of my closest friends."
'Doctor Who' returns to BBC One in the autumn.
