We now know what to call three of the new monsters being faced by the Doctor and Clara in the new run of Doctor Who episodes...

Warning: contains potential spoilers for Doctor Who series 7b

With thanks to our chum and sometime guest-writer Blogtor Who, we now know a little more about a few of the monsters Clara and the Doctor will be running away from in the new Who episodes. You'll have spotted these blighters in the BBC's official trailer for the return of Doctor Who, and now we know their names, and in which episode they are due to appear.

First up is this caged, robed beast, who goes by the name of The Mummy and is set to arrive in Neil Cross' The Rings of Akhaten

Accompanying The Mummy are The Vigil, a race of new villains also appearing in The Rings of Akhaten, airing on Saturday the 6th of April. Look closely, and you'll also see this lot on the episode poster (well, okay, not that closely, they're quite large and more or less in the middle of it).

Finally, in the as-yet untitled finale arrive The Whispermen, a nattily dressed bunch whose taste for formal wear puts one in mind of The Gentlemen from Buffy the Vampire Slayer's exquisite Hush, as we're by no means the first to point out. 

So there we have it, a mummy, a vigil, and some faceless whisperers. Anyone behind the sofa yet?
