It’s no surprise that a full trailer for the Doctor Who 2013 Christmas Special The Time of the Doctor was released exactly 2 weeks before the premiere. It was time for a trailer and releasing it today was as good a day as any, right?
So, welcome to pre-war Trenzalore, people. From the pictures it looked to be a quiet and friendly planet. That is, before Raccoon Girl decided to join forces with the Silence, Daleks, Cybermen, and Weeping Angels. A little overkill, dontcha think?
But, hey, you know the old saying. It takes a village to kill a Doctor.
The rhyming voice-over may bring tears to your eyes. I’m not saying that from personal experience, mind you. I have allergies.
“And now it’s time for one last bow,
Like all your other selves.
Eleven’s hour’s over now,
The clock is striking Twelves.”
The Doctor must sacrifice everything to save a town called Christmas from the Time Lord’s greatest enemies.
Doctor Who: The Time of the Doctor premieres Christmas day, December 25, at 9/8C on BBC America
