The words in bold are the most interesting things:
"The iconic Time Lord will shortly be back on BBC One to make Saturday's telly more bearable, or at least it will for those around to catch it in its ridiculously early new timeslot of 6.20pm. Here's a rundown of what to look forward to in the fourth season, encompassing the friends, the foes and the familiar faces that will be encountered along the journey. Let's hope it will be another trip of a lifetime...
The bride is no longer running away from The Doctor, as Donna Noble, played by Catherine Tate, tracks down her man and gains full-time companion status for the season. Tate's performance during the 2006 Christmas Special divided the fans, but if the extended trailer and early buzz is anything to go by, then we'll all be won over in less time than it takes a Hoix to devour a Big Mac.Joining her will be the legendary Bernard Cribbins as her grandfather Wilf, as seen in 'The Voyage Of The Damned'. He was the well-weathered newspaper vendor who spoke to The Doctor during his trip to the Earth with Astrid and several other aliens.
Fresh from fending off Owen Harper's flirtations on Torchwood, if not Captain Jack's tongue, Martha Jones is back for a handful of episodes. Now working for government organisation UNIT, Martha first bumps into The Doctor when the Sontarans (see below) decide to storm the planet. Be prepared to witness a nastier version of Martha on display too, for these Sontarans like their cloning (as opposed to personal grooming). A dazzling array of past companions are set to return as the series hurtles towards its climax in the latter episodes. Billie Piper gives her chavette lingo another outing as Rose Tyler slips through the Void to hook up with The Doctor. Or is it the other way round? Captain Jack and Sarah Jane Smith also return from their spin-off shows for a mass reunion alongside Jackie Tyler and the self-professed 'tin dog' Mickey Smith. Although we'd love to hear the cute bark of "affirmative Master", there's no evidence that K-9 has been cocking his rusty leg on the Tardis again. Finally, rumours that The Doctor defied a horde of Reapers to bring Adric back from the death for the season finale have so far proven unfounded.
There's an even balance of new and old creatures in the fourth season. In the former category, the Adipose are set to debut in the opening episode 'Partners In Crime' and, if the production designs are a good indication, are definitely in the cute-but-nasty mould previously occupied by the Slitheen. The following story involves an encounter with the fiery, volcano-dwelling Pyrovillians in Pompeii 79AD, while giant wasps known as the Vespiform will be buzzing around a 1930s mansion later on in the series.
As for the mandatory blasts from the past, the big news - for veteran Whovians at least - is that the Sontarans are back. This warmongering, vertically-challenged race of clones hide something rather sinister beneath their helmets - faces that resemble jacket potatoes. The Sontarans are certainly spuds you don't like, as they make their first appearance since 1985 to do battle with The Doctor, Donna, UNIT and Martha Jones in a mid-season two-parter.
The origins of The Ood, the supposedly servile squid-faced race previously encountered near a black hole, are explored in the third episode, which takes place on their home planet. Unsurprisingly, the Daleks are back for the finale - but will they be reacquainted with their evil creator Davros in the process? If so, let's hope The Doctor serves up lashings of unlimited rice pudding, etc, etc for his withered nemesis. If you understand the last sentence, you've clearly been watching too much of the Sylvester McCoy era!
The Guest Stars
A delectable delight of familiar thespian names are on display throughout the 13 episodes. Representing the ladies, former Coronation Street star Sarah Lancashire plays baddie Miss Foster in the season premiere, ex EastEnder Lindsey 'Carol Jackson' Coulson will appear in 'Midnight' and national treasure Felicity Kendal will head back to the days of Agatha Christie in 'The Unicorn And The Wasp'. Former Doctor Peter Davison's daughter Georgia Moffett plays a very important role in the latter half of the series, ironically rumoured to be The Doctor's daughter Susan, or someone posing as her. However, the biggest casting news came when former ER and Moll Flanders actress Alex Kingston was revealed to have been signed up for the eagerly-anticipated Steven Moffat two-parter 'Silence In The Library'.
As for the lads, British hearthrob Colin Salmon, best known for his Brosnan-era James Bond appearances, takes his place alongside Kingston in Moffat's story. In addition, respected actors Peter Capaldi and Phil Davis, best known for The Thick Of It and Quadrophenia respectively, will both be donning togas (and perhaps a bit of lava) for their stint in Pompeii. Finally, two much-loved faces from the days of 1980s BBC comedy both turn up in the first half of the season. In 'The Planet Of The Ood', Blackadder legend Tim McInnery appears, although we doubt The Doctor will be calling him 'Darling'. Christopher Ryan, renowned for portraying straight man Mike in anarchic comedy The Young Ones, then stomps onto our screens as Sontaran leader General Staal in the subsequent two episodes. Poor Ryan will undoubtedly be wondering whether his own face will ever make it into the Whoniverse, for his previous appearance in the show in 1986 as the amphibious Mentor Lord Kiv also required heavy make-up."

I think the cover looks great, what do you think?
And here is the clip from Partners in Crime which was shown on the Friday Night Project: The Clip is from Partners in Crime which is the first episode of series 4...here it is :
Here is the dialouge:
Donna: But if we go down in that they'll just haul us back up again!
Doctor: No, no coz not all the controls are for the sonic cage, I'm the only one who can control it... Not unless she's got a sonic device of her own, and thats very unlikely...
[Miss Foster walks down a hall with her own sonic device]
Foster: Out of my way
[She does something to the controls for the sonic cage which makes the Donna and Doctor lose control of the sonic cage]
[The Doctor does something to the controls to gain control again]
Wow! (In Yoda voice) The Sonic wars begun have they!

The pictures above are from the episode Planet of the Ood......in other news the Mill released to SFX magazine some pictures of the monsters in the first episode whom are called Adipose. They are pill shaped and babyish and they grow in peoples stomachs.
Now the big news....the synopsis for the second episode of Series 4 which is The Fires of Pompeii has been released read it below:
When the Doctor and Donna arrive in 79AD they discover psychic powers and beasts of stone running riot in the streets of old Pompeii. The time-travellers face their greatest challenge yet – can established history be changed, or must the Doctor let everyone die?
And the episodes in Series 4 will be 50 minutes long and not the normal 45 minutes and the finale will be 60 minutes.
All this sounds so great...............my brain is hurting from all this anyway please comment below

Next we have some information and confirmation. Someone who saw the filming of the Series 4 finale said this.
Davros has a nice metal claw. Word has reached my ears that the series 4 major villain is something of a red herring. Simm's (Seems) that behind Davros in the Finale there is a very familiar foe of the Doctor who is in fact calling all the shots..... Awesome vrs faithful classic series style Davros and messed up regenerations iand some characters might split/swap bodies.
So that all confirms Davros's return to Doctor Who in Series 4
Now for some rumours/speculation
- Well, the Masters back for starters.
- Someone (or more than 1 person) will change (regenerate?) be it the Doctor, the Master, Davros, Harriet Jones etc
- The Doctor and the Master could actually swap bodies as I've heard in some rumors.
Sarah-Jane was in a car and Daleks were threatening to "Exterminate" her. Then they shot a bit where Mickey comes in and gets Sarah-Jane out the car, and Jackie comes in asking where her daughter is.
Filming went on till quite early in the morning
And finally a little picture I found lurking on the Doctor Who Forums i would like to thanks Emilyd187 for the set report and Christian Tate for this rather fantastic picture. But this picture is for personal use only ad on behalf of the person who made it nobody will use it on their site!!!

The picture above was made by me and is copyright Doctor Who Insania
It was reported in an article in the Daily Star that an 'insider'who works on Doctor Who leaked to them that the Cybermen will be appearing the 2008 christmas special and various comments that Russell .T. Davies has said seem to back this up."The Cybermen will be unleashed on Christmas Day," the 'insider' told the newspaper. "It's going to be a really scary, special episode. Who knows what they will have in store for the Doctor this time?"
Also they said that the Doctor will be joined by Rose Tyler to battle the Cybermen as she chooses to join him in the Series 4 finale.
This should be treated as rumours until it is all confirmed.

HERE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT DIALOUGE
A Dalek is trying to evacuate people from their houses. However, one family refuses to come out.
MAN: Laura, get back in the house! Simon, get inside! What do you want with us?
DALEK: Daleks do not answer human questions!
MAN: Leave us alone. Go back in the sky where you came from!
[DALEK trundles forward threateningly]
(Not on the video)
DALEK: Maximum extermination!
[There is the shout of "Boom!" which I'm sure in the actual episode will be an awe-inspiring explosion of some sort]
