Following the debut of a poster design last month, BBC America has revealed 15 new stills from the upcoming season 7.2. The premiere, "The Bells of St. John," is the first new episode since last year's Christmas special and will debut Saturday, March 30 at 8:00pm on BBC America.

Said to be a modern day urban thriller, "The Bells of St. John" is written by lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat ("Sherlock"). Set in London against the backdrop of new and old iconic landmarks – The Shard and Westminster Bridge – "The Bells of St. John" introduces a new nemesis, the Spoonheads, who battle the Doctor as he discovers something sinister is lurking in the Wi-Fi.

The premiere will be followed by seven new episodes written by Moffat, acclaimed writer Neil Gaiman (Coraline, Beowulf), Mark Gatiss ("Sherlock"), Neil Cross ("Luther") and Stephen Thompson ("Sherlock").

The Doctor (Matt Smith) is joined by his new companion Clara (Jenna-Louise Coleman) for the latest set of incredible adventures through space and time. The duo finds new adversaries and familiar friends around every corner as they journey from the bottom of the ocean in a submarine to the center of the TARDIS and beyond. The Cybermen make a thunderous return and the Ice Warrior arrives in an unexpected place.

“It’s the 50th year of Doctor Who and look what’s going on!" says Moffat. "We’re up in the sky and under the sea! We’re running round the rings of an alien world and then a haunted house. There’s new Cybermen, new Ice Warriors and a never before attempted journey to the centre of the TARDIS. And in the finale, the Doctor’s greatest secret will at last be revealed! If this wasn’t already our most exciting year it would be anyway!”

Also appearing this season are guest stars Dougray Scott ("Desperate Housewives," Mission: Impossible II), Warwick Davis ("Life’s Too Short," Harry Potter), Celia Imrie (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel), Richard E. Grant (Iron Lady, Dracula), Jessica Raine ("Call the Midwife") and Tamzin Outhwaite ("EastEnders," "Law & Order: UK"). Additionally, mother and daughter Dame Diana Rigg ("Game of Thrones," "The Avengers") and Rachael Stirling (Tipping the Velvet) will appear on screen together for the first time.
