[[wysiwyg_imageupload:690:]]The filming for Season 7 of Doctor Who begins filming on Monday, February 20th, with the cast presently in the studio doing rehearsals at the new BBC Roath Lock Studios in Cardiff.

Doctor Who will return this Fall, which will feature the last of Karen Gillan (Amy) and Arthur Darvill (Rory), as this is the duo's final season on the show.

Steven Moffat is listed as Season 7's Executive Producer and Lead Writer, with Caroline Skinner as Executive Producer and Marcus Wilson on as producer.

Chris Chibnall ("The Hungry Earth/Cold Blood") and Toby Whithouse ("School Reunion," "The Vampires of Venice" and "The God Complex") are on as writers as well, with Saul Metzstein listed as a director.

The BBC released the following teaser:

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...

And yes! We've been promised the return of some old monsters, but some new and terrifying ones lie in wait for the Doctor...
