esterday during the Fifa World Cup Final the wonderful people at the BBC released the trailer for the highly anticipated series of Doctor Who. The trailer didn’t give much away, it merely teased! However, I do have a feeling that the timing of the trailer’s release coincides with the Doctor Who San Diego Comic-Con Panel. I wonder if the Panel will give the Comic-Con audiences much more content and a far more fleshed out trailer. Time will tell…
The trailer introduces us to the new TARDIS crew, there’s a little Easter Egg from Matt Smith’s time on Doctor Who but it’s one of those, 'blink and you miss it' moments. The trailer builds the tension for the revelation of the brand new incarnation of the Doctor. However, many eagle-eyed fans would notice that the televisions in the background all feature the presenters of the World Cup Panel, just to give it that feeling that it was happening in the present moment.
I was left a bit disappointed and wanted more but I think this little piece is just an introduction of the new TARDIS crew and that a much more fleshed out trailer will be released sometime in August/September. I can see the series being an October release; I have deliberately been avoiding spoilers on the interweb. I do know however that the series is supposedly going to feature the return of some Classic Monsters. But in my opinion, I think it’s just speculation due to a photo of the BBC filming on location made its way to the internet.
Anyway, here’s the trailer!
