It’s a great day! Why? Because we have a new Doctor Who trailer! Yay!
Honestly, I’d just go ahead and watch it now before reading on because I’m going to dissect the hell of it.
Ok, first thing first. I will be recapping the new series so don’t worry. I’m going to do everything in my power to make this show more popular here in America and that does include reporting on every little piece of news I can get my hands on, despite the fact that most of my coworkers are ignorant to the awesomeness of Who. But whatever, their loss and our gain.
Second thing – holy hell does this series look DARK. A smart youtuber commented (biggest oxymoron I’ve ever written) that the Doctor has been through a lot of dark hours, but I don’t think he’s been through one this dark with Steven Moffatt behind the wheel. Judging from this little trailer things are going to get CREEPY and it is going to be AWESOME. Amy looks like she gets in some fine messes and Rory will undoubtedly prove himself again. The Doctor actually grows a beard (which can only mean TROUBLE) and River Song says the Doctor will fall farther than he ever has. Also, Moffatt has assured us that this season will be tense with one hell of a cliffhanger in the middle. Gonna be absolutely splendid.
Third thing, and this is one of my favorite parts about the Doctor, is the lines. “I’ve been running my whole life. Now it’s time for me to stop.” That’s just a brilliant line. The one thing the Doctor does a lot is, well, run. It’s been commented on countless times but for him to say this? After everything Moffatt has promised? ACK! CAN-NOT-WAIT (say it like a Dalek). But the best line? The one that sent massive shivers down my back with seven little words? The one that Matt Smith delivered with such a minimalist approach that packed way more punch than had he screamed them at the top of his lungs? Right after the Silence threatens that he has killed hundreds of Time Lords, the Doctor drops this truth bomb:
“Fear me. I’ve killed all of them.”
April 23rd folks. April 23rd.
