Doctor Who new series trailer promises fear, mystery, snogging and scary monsters
It's tantalising, menacing, and with a whole stash of sinister.
From where I'm sitting three weeks seems too long to wait for this year's Doctor Who series to begin. This time, there's going to be a mega cliffhanger half way through and we're going to have to wait several months to see how it all works out.
There are some very scary looking clowns and River Song looking gorgeous as we get to find out, presumably, her full story. She's such a good character, though, that I reckon there's a good chance they'll preserve some of the air of mystery around her to keep her going.
The BBC are offering 30 pairs of tickets to a screening of the first two episodes next Monday night at 6pm in Central London. I'm not entering, sadly, because I have an ASLDC Executive meeting then, the BBC aren't paying for travel and it's only open to over 16s, and it wouldn't be fair to see it without Anna.
This series looks like it has the potential to match the last, and to scare the living daylights out of me. Bring it on.........
