I don’t know how this slipped by SLW, but there’s a new trailer for the next season of “Doctor Who,” and I’m not going to pass up the opportunity to introduce it. It’s just as well — I’ve been rewatching the series with Mrs. Pajiba-hyphenate lately, and it’s been a joy to watch her go through the same stages I experienced the first time: 1) Insisting that I won’t like the show; 2) Insisting that no one will ever be as good as Christopher Eccleston; 3) Insisting that no one will ever be better than David Tennant; and 4) Experiencing the disappointment of learning that Catherine Tate will be the fourth-season companion only to realize a few episodes later how perfect she is for that season, and 5) the overwhelming sense of shock and confusion and heart-swell when Billie Piper briefly appears in the first episode of season four.
We are now upon the episode in season four that introduces River Song for the first time, and in the trailer for season six of “Doctor Who” below, it’s revealed that we will finally find out who she is. I’m sure many of you have brilliant guesses, but I have essentially ruled out all of my own hunches.
Here’s the trailer. Feel the goosebumps, folks.
