No more speculation required...
The BBC on both sides of the Pond - pun intended - have finally confirmed Saturday 1st September for the start of Series 7.
It will be shown between 7.20 - 8.10pm in the UK. That should put it up against Ant & Dec's skill-free game show Red or Black (you just have a 50-50 guess).
On the same day, the compilation of the 5 parts of Pond Life will be shown on the red button service. These mini-episodes will be broadcast daily from Monday 27th to Friday 31st August on the official website and the BBC You Tube channel. They will show what home life is like for Amy and Rory as they try to lead a normal life - with the added complication of the Doctor dropping by unannounced. Surprise guests are promised - so expect the odd Ood or Silurian or River or whatever.
I assume this will be in lieu of a prequel like those we had last year.
There is a new BBC America trailer, with lots of new non-Asylum scenes (viewable on Tardis Newsroom on the right for instance).
It looks as if DWM isn't going to miss the party after all. They have released a cover - with a further 2 alternatives still to be revealed. So issue 451 to be in the shops on Thursday 30th I presume.
