Doctor Who fans are likely waiting with bated breath for season seven to kick off this weekend. Luckily, we have five new episode posters, a trailer and installments of a series of mini-adventures to share with you. While the latest season will feature the continuing exploits of The Doctor (Matt Smith), this year will also mark the departure of fan favorites Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darvill). On the bright side, the Christmas special will introduce The Doctor’s new companion, Clara (Jenna-Louise Coleman) so hopefully the fans give her a chance to win their affections. Season seven of Doctor Who starts September 1st on the BBC and BBC America. Hit the jump to see the new episode posters, trailer and mini-adventures.
The all-new season of Doctor Who doesn’t premiere until later this year on BBC America, but in the meantime, the cast and creative team headed down to Comic-Con for a presentation and panel, and to debut footage for the show’s loyal and dedicated fans. This season will see the last days of the Ponds, with Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darvill) returning for their final rollercoaster voyage with The Doctor (Matt Smith), and then see a dramatic turn of events when The Doctor meets a new companion, played by Jenna-Louise Coleman.
During this interview, co-stars Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill talked to the press about how much more emotional things will get before their characters leave the show, their favorite moments on the show, how satisfied they were with their departure, the reason they wanted it to be a final goodbye, and how surprised they’ve been by the fan love for their characters. Darvill also talked about doing a play next, before shooting a series called Broadchurch (written by Chris Chibnall), and Gillan will shoot Not Another Happy Ending in Glasgow, before going to Alabama to shoot a horror film called Oculus. Check out what they had to say after the jump.

Moderator Chris Hardwick guided a packed Hall H through the approach of the next season (series, if you’re British) of Doctor Who and the coming departure of companions Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) and Rory Williams (Arthur Darvill). Gillan and Darvill were joined on stage by the Doctor (Matt Smith), Showrunner Steven Moffat and Executive Producer Caroline Skinner. Fans were treated to clips from two upcoming episodes as well as some teases for what’s in store.
In addition to a look back on a powerful scene between Gillan and Darvill from The Girl Who Waited, fans were also shown clips from A Town Called Mercy (a Western-themed episode shot in Spain) and Dinosaurs on a Spaceship (which includes both the lovelies mentioned in the title as well as Rory’s father accompanying the Doctor’s gang). More after the break.
