Only 5 more days until the premiere of Season 7.2 of ‘Doctor Who’ and, boy, do we have a lot to share with you! After the prequel for ‘The Bells of Saint John’ was released over the weekend, the BBC then released a trailer for the episode and we have it here for you to see.
It’s no spoiler that the Doctor does meet up with Clara again since his encounter with her in ‘The Snowman’, and just like the other two meetings, she doesn’t remember him. The trailer does include some footage from the clip that was released last week and there’s some great new footage to be seen – like the new look of the Doctor (gone is the tweed jacket but at least he kept the bow tie!).
Steven Moffat, who wrote the episode, describes ‘The Bells of Saint John’ as a “modern-day urban thriller’ and has the Doctor and Clara face a danger that seems to be lurking in the Wi-Fi signals of London which picks off the minds of people and imprisons them.
In case you missed them, we also have 3 clips from the episode below. Included in this bundle, is the obligatory yet always amusing “Doctor …who?” bit that each companion seems to go through when they first meet the Doctor. While not very spoilery, if you wish to go into the series cold, then I would recommend not watching these clips as they do contain some cute bits of dialog between Matt Smith’s Doctor and Jenna-Louise Coleman’s Clara. It’s clear that these two will have some crazy dialog between them as the series progresses.
Lastly, while we’ve already met the new companion, BBC America did release this ‘Doctor Who Insider’ featurette which focuses on Coleman who admits she never saw an episode of ‘Doctor Who’ until her audition when she watched ‘11th Hour’. Of course we can forgive the lass as Matt Smith also wasn’t a very knowledgeable Whovian when he auditioned for his role and look at him now!
Hopefully all this has made you want more and as Saturday gets closer, the Whovian frenzy will continue to grow!
So what do you think of all the footage so far? Let us know in the comments below.
