matt smith doctor whoThe new Doctor Who, Matt Smith, and gal pal Anna Pond (Karen Gillan) seem to be stranded on a beach in more new set photos and a video of the series' first day of shooting. (Fans will notice the Doctor is holding a brand new sonic screwdriver.)

I'm really looking forward to the Doctor's return (or the new Doctor's arrival, however you wish to look at it) in 2010. The first two brilliant hours of Torchwood: Children of Earth have me wanting to dive back into the rich sci-fi world created by Russell T. Davies.

I know things won't be exactly the same with Stephen Moffat now running the show, but a rebirth might be just what the franchise needs after four years and two Doctors. Of course, casting two new leads doesn't mean the Doctor won't be bumping in to some old friends (and foes) once The TARDIS starts jumping through time and space again. Check out some more spoilery pics to find out who shows up to welcome the new Doctor during his first adventure.

I really hope that outfit is just for blending in with a time period and not his new one.
Please, god, that's NOT his outfit, right? That would be the most god awful Dr. Who outfit ever designed.
Especially just after David's great,perfect Who clothes.

Well, at least there isn't a vegetable pinned to his lapel.

"...the rich sci-fi world created by Russell T. Davies...a rebirth might be just what the franchise needs after four years and two Doctors."

Nice troll there... Of course we all know that should say "..the rich sci-fi world created by Sydney Newman and Verity Lambert... a rebirth might be just what the franchise needs after forty-six years and ten Doctors"

But of course you knew that didn't you Mr. Moody? Didn't you?

Not to get too geeky and attached to a character I've yet to see on screen, but she's actually playing AMY Pond.

You wrote that specifically to make original series Doctor Who fans tear out what's left of our hair, didn't you?

Once you get done watching Torchwood you'll feel very differently. All I'll say is I'm glad Doctor Who is out of Davies' hands now, and in much more capable ones.

I might be more into him if it wasn't for his deathly pallor and, is that LIPSTICK he is wearing?! That damn hair is throwing me off too.
