The newest issue of Doctor Who Magazine has now begun circulating and there are several pieces of information (spoiler tagged, below) in the issue. Of course, you can read all the details in the latest issue, #346, on sale Thursday July 22.
Producer Russell T. Davies says he won't be releasing any further episode titles until transmission of the show, but episode 7 has the working title "The Long Game". He describes Rob Shearman's script as "thrilling, brutal, and epic" and says that they've chosen a new logo (but it's not seen) and that there will be a "proper title sequence".

Director Keith Boak's "block" consists of episodes 1, 4 and 5 -- which means they're shooting "Rose" and "Aliens of London" as one package. He is quoted in DWM as saying that the new series is "powerful, it's emotive, it's sh*t scary, it's chilling, it's fun, it's warm and it's adventurous. All those things pulled together.....all Ican hope is that it will be completely different to anything anyone's ever seen on TV before."

Among the new names are Neill Gorton, who is in charge of special make-up and prosthetics (he's worked on "Tomb Raider," "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" and "Red Dwarf") and Mike Tucker, writer and visual effects artist, who is handling models and miniatures. So far he's the only direct link on the production team with the old show.

The issue also confirms the writers for the upcoming hardcover Doctor Who new series books: "The Deadly Game" is by Jacqueline Rayner, "The Clockwise Man" is by Justin Richards, and "The Monsters Inside" is by Stephen Cole.

The issue also confirms the details about MillTV doing the effects, which was revealed by MillTV earlier this week.
