I know it’s almost time for the stateside broadcast of Doctor Who “The Rings of Akhaten,” but that’s no reason to just sit around waiting. Take a couple of peeks inside the episode with these clips. And while you’re waiting, if you haven’t checked out the image gallery I’ve just updated it from 13 images to 33 images. You can find it at “UPDATE: Doctor Who ‘The Rings of Akhaten’ Image Gallery – 20 New Images Added.”
That image gallery and these clips should hold you until the episode begins. And it’s a rousing adventure reminiscent of the best classic Doctor Who stories. It’s also another extremely quote-worthy installment, so check back after the episode for my recap & review which includes a generous helping of quotes, as always.
In the first clip, Clara gets her very first glimpse of an alien sun up close along with the beautiful rings of Akhaten.
This clip is even shorter and feels like it’s a Star Wars/Doctor Who mash-up. It looks like the prosthetics crew worked overtime for this one!
Doctor Who airs on BBC America Saturday nights at 8/7c, immediately followed by Orphan Black and The Nerdist. It’s your one-stop shopping for Saturday night entertainment.
