We brought you the news last month that the Ice Warriors would be returning to Doctor Who in a new episode penned by Mark Gatiss.

Well, the first official image for the second half of series 7 has been released and if you look hard enough, the Ice Warriors can be spotted in the broken glass as Matt Smith and Jenna Louise-Coleman motorcycle down the side of London's Shard building.

Check out the new image and enlarged images of the Ice Warriors below:

These newly designed Ice Warriors are not too dissimilar from the original monster and with teeth baring they do look rather frightening. Let's see what Mark Gatiss can pull out the bag when the episode airs in April.

John Barrowman has confirmed that he is in talks for the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special.

It was only in January of this year that the actor said he would be disappointed to miss out on the milestone episode. However, during an interview on This Morning a few days ago (March 1), Barrowman announced that he had been contacted:

"I haven't had any information up until just about right now - all I can say to you is that we're discussing things... that's a total exclusive! You guys are the first to ever hear it."

Despite his clear excitement at being involved in the 50th anniversary, Barrowman did go on to emphasize that the talks are in the very early stages:

"Even yesterday I was giving interviews and I was saying I have heard nothing, and now I can give you a little bit of an exclusive. I've heard something."

Since revealing his potential involvement, Barrowman has taken to Twitter, seemingly to calm down fans. He tweeted "Re 50th I didn't say in what capacity or what medium so stay calm and carry on. JB."

With so little having been revealed, speculation and rumours surrounding the 50th are spreading every day. We'll keep you updated when we know more.

Freema Agyeman has stated that she will not be starring in the 50th anniversary special. Her claim was made on Twitter on March 3rd and read:

"I'm contributing 2a programme for BBC AMERICA but not involved in the drama. Excited 2watch tho."

The actress who is currently in the US starring in The Carrie Diaries did go on to say that she would play Martha Jones again, providing it was done the right way:

"Would I play Martha Jones again? : Yes - under the right circumstances ie character development opportunity."

We haven't seen Martha since her Sontaran hunting days with hubby Micky (Noel Clarke). Will we see her again?...
