Doctor Who trailer gives a glimpse of new adventures in the Tardis

Daleks, deadly Angels, dinosaurs and a departure – the new series of Doctor Who is looking better than ever

Something has happened to time. It has stretched. Since the terrible events of The Wedding Of River Song, we have been denied any Doctor Who action of any consequence for almost a year. Which is not how things are supposed to be.

But on Thursday morning, and quite by surprise, we were given our first glimpse of the new series of Doctor Who. And suddenly, life in the UK post-Olympics is starting to look slightly less boring.

The five episodes that will air before Christmas will climax in the departure of the Ponds, which means that what would normally be a preamble for the main event is serving as the big finale to an epic three-year story. Isn’t Steven Moffat clever? The way this season is billed is as a big movie poster every week – perhaps the right move after the partial success of last year’s arc-heavy, front-loaded River-themed season. There are no two-parters, and every week promises its own spectacular.

The sort of people who feverishly follow every single detail of Doctor Who news (make that most of you on this blog) will have an idea of what’s in the trailer – but isn’t it thrilling to see this stuff for real, on screen.

The much-heralded opener Asylum Of The Daleks promises every Dalek ever built in a face off against the Tardis crew, a neat way of circumventing the unpopular new iDalek model, and a chance for a fangasm as we meet again the Special Weapon model from Remembrance Of The Daleks. Episode Two, Dinosaurs On A Spaceship, looks like tremendous fun, even if there’s a suspicion that the execution might come off as naff.

In A Town Called Mercy, Doctor Who goes western, and I don’t see how it can fail, especially with a script from Toby Whithouse. Elsewhere, there’s a mischievous-looking Egyptian lady, some rather camp sounding robots, an ice planet, some classic Doctor emoting and … oh yes, River. …
