Although the last few series of “Doctor Who” have tended to run all in subsequent weeks, give or take a holiday here or there, the BBC decided to go all American on the series this summer, with an almost 3 month hiatus between the first and second halves of the series. The bad news is that this is an evil that I forbid to be repeated in future series. The good news is that we get a mid season trailer.
Here it is, looking fantastic, if only because Hitler gets punched in the mouth:
I may have squealed, but you can prove nothing.
I’m liking that we’re seeing a lot of alien worlds and spacecraft in this trailer, which if one can work up a complaint for the series, it is that it sticks close to Earth more often than one would expect an immortal alien with access to all of space and time. And of course there are the little glimpses of the angels, the mystery of River Song, and general running in every direction because there can’t be Who without running around.
