New Doctor Who Trailer Is Creepy, Glorious (And Gloriously Creepy)

If the banner, prequel clip and promo image already have you excited for the upcoming sixth season of Doctor Who, then brace yourselves because this new full-length trailer is pretty amazing.

It gives us plenty of glimpses of the Doctor (Matt Smith), Amy (Karen Gillan), Rory (Arthur Darvill) and River Song (Alex Kingston), of course, as well as flashes of intriguing new characters and creatures that are both wonderful and creepy — little doll-beings, a ventriloquist’s dummy and a sad clown (shudder).

Best of all, though, it delivers one of those moments, like in “The Family of Blood,” where we’re reminded how chilling, and powerful, the Doctor can be: “Fear me,” an ominous voice says from off-screen, “I’ve killed hundreds of Time Lords.” To that the Doctor replies, “Fear me, I’ve killed all of them.”

The sixth season of Doctor Who begins Saturday, April 23, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on BBC America.

    I might watch this season that was a good trailer, very interesting, although Matt and Karen do absolutely nothing for me. Sorry but I find them boring.

    I think I’ve said this before, but I really like it when Doctor Who goes dark, and this looks like it’ll be an excellent series.

    Hey, was that Lily Cole? It appears the producers of Dr. Who are really, REALLY targeting the “fans of tall hot redheads” demographic :P

    He’s going to stop running… What’s he running from? It’s not like there’s anyone around to complain about him stealing the TARDIS anymore…

    The Doctor runs away from mostly all his enemies until he comes up with a plan of attack, so guess now the Doctor is gonna hunt them down.

    That doesn’t seem right, because he would always stop running at some point during each of those conflicts… I think it means he’s going back to Gallifrey, which would mean the Time-Lords are coming back (this would be at the top of my “List of things to do now that I’m controlling the best show ever” list).
