The Only Mystery Worth Solving: New "Doctor Who" Trailer

Broad spoilers for series 7 of "Doctor Who" follow, in terms of characters departing or arriving. Don't like it? Either don't read it, or go jump up a Dalek's tail pipe. [dalek voice] Defecate! DEFECATE! [/dalek voice]

Well now, the logic of the current series of "Doctor Who" simply escapes me. Oblivious to such things as facts, or this Internet thing with which I could look them up, I had been glancing on Netflix every couple of weeks for the last few months waiting for series seven to go up streaming. I had it all straight in my head: the Ponds got a final season and then there was a Christmas special that introduced the new companion. So there should be a new series coming up which means the old one should go up on Netflix.

Instead there's a whole what the what situation going on. So the first "half" of series seven was five episodes that saw the departure of the Ponds. Then there was a Christmas special introducing Jenna-Louise Coleman as the new companion. And then the second "half" of the series will be eight episodes and begins airing March 30th. As a person who passed math at least through the fourth grade, I have severe objections to their use of the term "half" in these descriptions.

In any case, here is the new trailer for series 7.5:

Two things. First, I hate the new companion. She should not take this personally. I provisionally hate all new companions and all new Doctors until they prove me wrong. Thus far they all have, but part of the experience of this show as a fan is the gut objection to change.

Second, I'm kind of liking the mystery of the companion being highlighted. Not that I like her. Yet.

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
