Well, we promised there'd be big news coming out of this past weekend's Official Doctor Who Convention in Cardiff, and we didn't lie: the first official trailer for Doctor Who Season Seven, which premiered at the con, is now online!
Here it is, courtesy of BBC America, and check back after the clip for our analysis:
So what did we get here? Some great quips from Amy and The Doctor, of course, and plenty of non-stop action. But there are a few key points to take away:
- It's been a while since Amy and The Doctor have seen each other.
- Most of the trailer is taken up with footage from the Season Premiere, which is set in the Old West (sort of), and features a villainous Cyborg Cowboy, or as we've dubbed him, Cowbyborg.
- You probably didn't miss this, but yup, that was a Dalek eye peeking out of the snow. The tin cans have been notoriously missing for the past season, but Head Writer Steven Moffat has promised they'll be showing up... Now we know that we can expect some sort of Dalek/Doctor chase on skis. Okay, maybe not. But hopefully.
- No tease here of either the Weeping Angels in episode five, Amy and Rory's departure, or the new companion (as she hasn't filmed anything yet). Also, surprisingly, no River Song. But we expect she'll pop her head in sooner rather than later.
We'll have more about this, and the wrap-up from Doctor Who Con in our "What's New With Doctor Who" column tomorrow, so stay tuned!
